Starz's genre epic 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' grows closer to its final bow each and every week, paving the way for a new genre hero to take its place, that of David Goyer-produced historical fantasy 'Da Vinci's Demons!' The new series will take a unique look at the famed inventor in the context of a young hero, crafting his brilliance in an age fraught with terror and intrigue, so how would you like a new look at the upcoming series premiering April 12? Check out the latest trailer for 'Da Vinci's Demons' inside!

Starz's latest trailer holds true in its claim that "genius cannot be contained," as executive producer David S. Goyer (‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Man of Steel‘) reinvents famed inventor Leonardo Da Vinci as an intelligent action hero for the network’s new series ‘Da Vinci’s Demons.’ A new interpretation of history along the lines of Starz’ other genre epics, the series tells the unheard tale of Da Vinci (Tom Riley)’s action-packed youth, as he “sets knowledge free, defies authority and throws himself into the future, forever changing the fate of mankind.”

Starz and ShockYa have released an epic new trailer for the forthcoming series, which better shows off the opponents Da Vinci faces in his quest for knowledge. Goyer himself spoke out about the series some months ago, likening Da Vinci to some of the other superheroes he’d written, including Batman and the ‘Man of Steel.’ “We’ve embellished it with what I’m calling historical fantasy; he had an incredible life and we didn’t have to embellish as much as you’d think,” Goyer said. “I didn’t want to do Ye Olde Historical Drama; I wanted to do something historical, viewed through a modern prism.”
