PENNY DREADFUL: Meet 'The Creature' In New Poster & Video

If you've been watching the seriously messed up Showtime series (and if you haven't, start!) you'll have met this new take on Frankenstein's Monster when he made his shocking debut at the end of ep 2. Now IGN have debuted a character poster and brief intro video for "The Creature". Take a look..


Penny Dreadful airs Sundays on Showtime, here's a clip from next week's ep.

I like this show. The first 3 episodes have been intriguing.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/26/2014, 8:51 AM
Yeah SuperCat, totally agree.
Love this show and the acting and script is tops.

silverhawk - 5/26/2014, 8:56 AM
I'm pretty sure Ethan (Hartnett) is a werewolf. Pretty good show so far.
StarGateCommand - 5/26/2014, 8:58 AM
Completely agree with Supercat and InfiniteMonkey. And in my fantasies, Eva Green is my loving wife.

Amamzing show! Horror/Dark shows are some of the best on tv right now. AHS, Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, Walking Dead...

I read a description of the show somewhere that called it "super-sexualized fantasy" or something like that, which put me off, but the first 2 eps are still on my computer.
But this article and these comments have me convinced that I should give it a try! Thanks!

Episode 2 was so good....the scene where Eva Green gets possessed was creepy

Love this show...

I was so depressed when he killed Proteus.
HiroTheGeek013 - 5/26/2014, 9:55 AM
Is there other ways of catching up with this show? I don't have cable.
nibs - 5/26/2014, 10:03 AM it! you'll never need cable again...
blackagar94 - 5/26/2014, 10:05 AM
I came to the conclusion after episode 2 that Eva Green is posessed in real life. I mean that scene... wow , intense. She is [frick]ing talented.
batz11 - 5/26/2014, 10:37 AM
Watching ep3 right now as a matter of fact, cool-ass show...
KINGPEN266 - 5/26/2014, 10:38 AM
i dont think werewolves eat their own so i dont think hes one imo sliverhawk
HiroTheGeek013 - 5/26/2014, 10:49 AM
Lol thanks nibs.
ragnarL9 - 5/26/2014, 10:50 AM
where can i see this online? for free? episode one is free, but i cant find episode 2
Dunejedi - 5/26/2014, 12:35 PM
Liked the first 2 episodes, the third dragged a bit but it's a solid show. Eva Green definately has my attention and Hartnett is probably a Wild West Werewolf. I thought Protues was more interesting than Caliban.

I'm glad someone is executing the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen concept better than they did with the film. And a cable series at that. Moar.

Dio, that was hilarious
And the creature looks like skrillex
CletusKasady89 - 5/26/2014, 12:39 PM
This show is great!
MrCamw1 - 5/26/2014, 1:17 PM
Now that Hannibal is on break for about a year, I may start watching this.

This show has been very good thus far. Hope they keep it up. Eva Green is smokin hot.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 5/26/2014, 3:02 PM
That's a pretty emo looking monster. Fitting, I guess. He hates his father.

Ethan Chandler is a werewolf. An American werewolf in London. He also did mention his show was going to Paris. An American werewolf in Paris.
thebagman - 5/26/2014, 4:19 PM
love this show but he looks like he's in The Cure
symbiotics - 5/26/2014, 4:58 PM
according to the showrunner, that is the way Mary Shelley describes him in the book, long hair and yellowish, pale eyes, I never read the book so I'm not sure, but it wouldn't be the first time that the image was distorted by the movies
ShadowFan - 5/26/2014, 5:18 PM
One of the most intelligently written shows on TV, on the level of the BBC's "Sherlock Holmes", in my opinion. Brilliant casting and dialogue to match. I ordered Showtime just for this one show, and it's been worth it!

My only complaint is that it isn't even a full hour, but more like 50 minutes. Granted network shows are probably even less given breaks for commercials, but still wish it at least ran the full hour. That is my ONLY complaint, though.

This is Gothic horror done RIGHT!
ShadowFan - 5/26/2014, 5:23 PM
Just saw the clip of Ethan refusing his blood for the transfusion. Given that plus his run-in with the wolves in this week's episode where he seemed able to communicate with them, I think others above are correct that we may have an American Werewolf on this show. Good call!
marvel72 - 5/26/2014, 5:38 PM
great show that everyone should be watching,as good as game of thrones.
Ranger14 - 5/26/2014, 5:39 PM
I was stoked to see the pilot on my huluplus, but no episodes since. :-( That must have been a marketing ploy by Showtime to tease and get someone to subscribe.
marvel72 - 5/26/2014, 5:41 PM
if you had sex with vanessa,would it be classed as a threesome?

@ IchabodCrane

if you watch the opening credits it looks like a werewolf is shown in them.
sinthegreat - 5/26/2014, 6:44 PM
Of course he is a werewolf. All the clued are there
thedangle1 - 5/26/2014, 6:53 PM
Finally, a thread where everyone agrees. Great, great show, so far. Has potential to be one of the best shows I've ever seen, since I'm a huge fan of all the characters, meaning Frankenstein, yet-to-seen Dracula, and of course werewolves, if that's what Josh Hartnett's character might be. It's off to a great start. And yes, Hannibal turned out to be awesome. Was a little slow the first season, but second season picked up nicely and ended awesome. Can't wait for next season of Hannibal, and rest of Penny.
Ryguy88 - 5/26/2014, 7:18 PM
"as good as game of thrones."

I somehow doubt that. Seriously though, is this show worth trying out?
AdamX - 5/26/2014, 7:34 PM
Awesome show!!!!!
Dunejedi - 5/26/2014, 7:43 PM
@Ryguy88, it's no GoT, but is absolutely worth checking out.
LeeHolland - 5/26/2014, 10:28 PM
I think it's much better than Game of Talking. I really don't see why everyone loves that show. It's like ordering an awesome meal and instead of cooking it, the chef just tells you about it and shows you the occasional ingredient.
JediPhilosopher - 5/27/2014, 3:18 AM
The original goth. :P
MakluIV - 5/27/2014, 4:33 AM
Looks like somebody was watching 'This Must Be The Place' and were inspired to make this show. :)
