Netflix brings its own superhero into the fray.
Netflix has a new superhero show on the way, but for once it isn’t connected with the ever-expanding Marvel Universe that has been so popular for the streaming service lately. Instead, they’ve created iBoy, a show about a kid who gets technopathy.
Technopathy is the ability to control technology, something that is extra relevant these days. The show’s protagonist Tom gets the ability after a shooting leaves him with cell phone fragments in his brain. The rest of the story plays out like a typical superhero origin story, and has some serious parallels to Daredevil.
The show stars Bill Milner, Maisie Williams and Roy Kinnear.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. The show drops on January 27.
