Peacock brings a video game Bent metal to the small screen, with a live-action adaptation that we now know will star Scream Actress, Neve Campbell, alongside Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man: No Way Home) and Stephanie Beatrice (Brooklyn 99).
Campbell takes on the recurring role of Raven, a character who drives a vehicle called the Shadow, which is modeled after a hearse. It remains to be seen how much of Raven’s in-game character will make it to TV, but we’re sure she’ll wear darker clothes and stick with at least some of her more gothic traits.
Meanwhile, Mackie takes on the role of John Doe; A man hired to deliver a mysterious package across the post-apocalyptic land in exchange for a chance at a better life.
Beatriz’ character Quiet appears to be an original created exclusively for the series, while Church will play Agent Stone, an Outlaw car driver who doesn’t mind using deadly force while on the job, following the strong tradition of law enforcement.
It’s going to be a busy year for Campbell, who is also rumored to be returning for a sixth time Scream part, alongside horror series legend Courteney Cox.
Bent metal should be a great watch, with comedy woven through and alongside the action and drama, but we have no idea when it’ll hit Peacock yet! We’ll keep an eye on it and keep you up to date with the latest news.
