"American Gods"

The loudest TV project of the near future, the screen version of the best-selling book by Neil Gaiman. The protagonist Shadow (Ricky Whittle) comes out of prison a few days ahead of time and learns about the death of his wife (Emily Browning).

Luke escapes from prison and becomes a superhero mercenary.

Luke Cage plays the not-so-famous Mike Colter (he has already appeared in Jessica Jones). But the antagonist Shchitomordnik is very recognizable, it is played by Ali Mahershalalhashbaz (his name should be learned to pronounce), known also for the role of Remy Danton in the “House of Cards”.
