‘Powerless’ Trailer: Vanessa Hudgens’ DC Office Comedy Looks Super

The first trailer for Powerless, the upcoming NBC sitcom featuring Vanessa Hudgens as an insurance adjuster in the DC Comics universe, has leaked online, and hints at a comedy that connects with audiences that don’t know their Green Hornets from their Green Lanterns.

There are a lot of references to the DC world in the first look (check out that Batman v Superman opening pose!), but Hudgens shines brighter than them as a sunny office dweller trying to do the right thing. Shout-out to Alan Tudyk for being involved (and gleefully reading a book about Lex Luthor to underline his evil side) and Danny Pudi for making it back onto NBC following Community.

In a network television world that finds room for Gotham and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Powerless looks like a smart send-up. Expect a fall premiere date to materialize soon, and check out the action at the recent PAX East convention below:
