Character Descriptions
Here is the church, here is the steeple, open the doors, see a leprechaun fighting an ex-convict in a crocodile-themed dive bar.

People of America, welcome to American Gods – the hotly-anticipated television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s instant-classic 2001 adult contemporary fantasy novel, which will give your DVR a new dose of deity when it premieres on Starz in 2017. And guess what? Your prayers for a sneak peek to tide you over until then have been answered.

EW has your exclusive first look at Shadow (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) in a scene that’ll be instantly familiar to fans of Gaiman’s novel: Jack’s Crocodile Bar, one of the book’s earliest settings, where Shadow first proves his might and mettle to the mysterious Wednesday in a fist-fight with the pugnacious, drunk leprechaun.

“It was one of the sets that we were the most excited about and an opportunity to do a tonal landgrab for what we are and what the style of the show will be,” says exec producer Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies), who re-teams with Heroes producer Michael Green to adapt the novel. “[Jack’s] is a kind of hillbilly chic aesthetic for Shadow’s entrée into the world of the gods.”

If seeing primary protagonist duo Shadow and Wednesday together in the flesh is giving you strange sensations, you’re not alone. Fuller says McShane’s Wednesday, who always exercised a morbid comic bite in the novel, is just as darkly funny here. “I think the comedy and charm and ease of Wednesday’s appeal is very well-suited for Ian McShane,” he says. “He has a vibrancy as Wednesday that could have gone so many different ways in other actors’ hands, but has such a specificity and reality, despite the situation at hand.”

Shadow, on the other hand, is the complete opposite of Wednesday – he’s stoic, kind, and, well, mortal. “There’s where Ricky has been such a boon,” says Green. “His experience of [the world of the gods] is very genuine and grounded, and we want to watch him be introduced to and beaten up by this new reality.”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
