Confirmed on Deadline and Brian Michael Bendis' tumblr, Susan Heyward was cast as Deena Pilgrim for the second try at an adaptation of the Eisner winning Powers series. I'm not familiar with her work even though I tried very hard with 666 Park Avenue and she was apparently on it. Deena is White in the books so I'm oh so patiently waiting for the "HOW IS THIS NOT DIFFERENT THAN WHEN WHITE ACTORS ARE CAST IN POC ROLES!" Anyway, I'm excited to for a WoC in a leading role for this and I'm wracking my brain to remember if I got into the Powers series? Time for a reread, I guess.
