If they didnt allow Constantine to light a cigarette im really interested in how they are going to bring some/all off the storylines to life for this!

Don't mind a lack of GBHs (Grievous body headshots, there's a website on it) but to me Preacher is a religious satire, and that's the contentious issue they need to keep (deep south america be damned!)

Ruth Negga has been fine on S.H.I.E.L.D. but based on that alone, I don't see any similarities at all to how Tulip is in the comics. I can think of a bazillion other actresses that would fit the role better (or maybe i'm just being biased with who I want to see naked?)...

in fairness by the last few episodes they'd caved in and showed him actually smoking

But yes, it's going to be a tall order for anybody other than say HBO...

I don't get how people who say they are massive fans of Preacher are making these casting decisions. It's better off left as a comic if you can't do it right.

None of the characters look remotely like their comic counterparts.

Cassidy's accent is atrocious. Granted im basing it on one line but that would ruin the show for me.

**** sake.

Looks pretty much as I expected. Meh.

I wonder if this is one of those 'we purposely didn't read any of the comics to get a fresh perspective on the story'

INdeed Joe Gilgun was embarrasingly bad with his accent and I don't normally notice these things. Shame they coudln't get Colin Farell - he would seem ideal for the part.

not too worried about the accent - the likes of Aidan Gillan/Christopher Eccleston/David Morrissey have dreadful American accents, but it doesn't put me off their TV shows

See I watch Game of Thrones and Walking Dead, never noticed a bad accent in it, but this however, the way Gilgun draws out the last word was wince inducing. You are right in that if its any good will have to get used to it, just like I got used to the wrong pronounciation of Constantine in that series recently.

The trailer is obviously designed for those who have no familiarity with the comic so it's probably not entirely indicative of what the show will really be like.

tbh it bears no similarity to the comic at all! If it wasn't for the name I would never be able to link the two entities together from that trailer.

Cassidy doesn't wear sunglasses.
Jesse Custer is approaching middle age and has short, trim hair.
Tulip is black.

At this rate, I'm expecting Herr Starr to rock up with a handlebar moustache and a mullet.

They might sound like trivial things I'm complaining about, but it's like they deliberately want it to be nothing like the source material.

i assumed the guy on the plane killing people was Herr Starr. If they keep the old arseface makeup that was doing the rounds a while back he will be the only one true to the character!

If that guy with with the knife really is Herr Starr...well, that is just disappointing. He's pretty iconic to the comics and to completely change him like that is pretty poor. Not surprising considering the rest of the casting.

No wonder this wasn't shown at Comic Con. They would have been booed off the stage.

No. I meant guy in the white/cream suit with mustache and knife trying to stab Tulip. Never mind because I just noticed they're in a car not on the plane. Plus I just looked on IMDB, he's Hugo Root. No sign of Herr Starr in the cast list.
