Summer Glau & David Lyons: Comic-Con Caped Crusaders

Summer Glau joins her co-star David Lyons to promote their new series The Cape during Comic-Con 2010 on Friday (July 23) held at California’s San Diego Convention Center.

The former Terminator actress (in a Corey Lynn Calter “Tina” split sleeve blouson dress) just turned 29 on Saturday. Happy birthday, Summer!!!!!

The Cape received mixed reviews after the pilot was screened for conference-goers. @aperren writes, “Just saw pilot for The Cape, new NBC show. Pilot OK, a bit overstuffed, *might* have potential with time but could see it collapsing quickly.”

@leahalexis adds, “The Cape was surprisingly appealing; kinda choppy initial pacing but pretty charming.”

FYI: Summer was accompanied to Comic-Con by her boyfriend, photographer Cooper Reynolds Gross (pictured below).

Summer Glau in THE CAPE -- First Pics!

Summer Glau types away on her invisible keyboard as investigative blogger Orwell in this first still from her upcoming NBC show, The Cape.

The one-hour superhero drama series stars ER‘s David Lyons (pictured) as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott). Fueled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Vince becomes The Cape – his son’s favorite comic book superhero – and takes the law into his own hands.

Summer laughed, “We joke because I’m sort of [The Cape's] sidekick that he’s going to have to call me ‘Pashmina’ or something … or ‘Mini Cape’ … ‘Shawl.’”

Summer Glau Throws On Her Cape

Summer Glau is coming back to primetime with NBC’s superhero-themed drama pilot, The Cape.

THR reports the 28-year-old actress will play Orwell, “a cute and intrepid investigative blogger who fearlessly goes after corrupt cops and costumed bad guys.”

The pilot centers around a former cop (David Lyons) who is “set up as a criminal and becomes a masked hero, the Cape, to clear his name.

Summer has a huge sci-fi audience after starring in Fox’s Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Dollhouse.
