Deadly Class: See The First Official Trailer For The Russo Brothers' Punk-Powered Comic Adaptation

Class is officially session – Deadly Class, that is.

Late Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con, Syfy unleashed the first full-length trailer for Deadly Class, Joe and Anthony Russo's television adaptation of the Image Comics series of the same name by Rick Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott. 

Taking us to 1987 San Francisco when anarchists runs amok and punk music pulsates through the streets, the Deadly Class trailer again introduces audiences to Marcus Lopez (Teen Wolf's Benjamin Wadsworth), a homeless teenager who is hand-selected for a coveted spot at King's Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts — a cream-of-the-crop institution that schools the children of elite crime families in the arts of combat, assassination, and general criminality. 

We follow Marcus as he walks the halls of King's Dominion, meeting Master Lin (Benedict Wong) and several of his classmates, which include ex-Yakuza member Saya (Lana Condor); the sometimes charming, sometimes murderous Maria (Maria Gabriela de Faria); Willie (Luke Tennie), the son of a Los Angeles gang leader who would rather do anything than become a malefactor like his father; Chico (Michel Duval), the son of a powerful cartel drug lord; and Billy (Liam James), the green-haired son of an immoral cop who helps Marcus get situated when he first arrives at school, a la Janice Ian and Cady Heron in Mean Girls

In a television landscape that's already saturated with superhero series – The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, with even more to come out of the Worlds of DC and plenty from the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well, oh my! – Deadly Class aims to subvert the standard and offer something sleek, stylish, and high-octane. After all, it isn't every day in realm of comic book adaptations that you see teachers whipping out their swords and taking warning swings at students in the middle of class, or green mohawk-rocking soon-to-be-assassins spending their teenage years learning how to kill. 

The Russo Brothers found immense success in the silver screen world earlier this year with Avengers: Infinity War, and they look to do the same in the small screen universe with Deadly Class. Save us a seat in the back row — we're ready for whatever Deadly Class has to teach us. 

Deadly Class doesn't yet have a set premiere date, but the series is scheduled to debut on Syfy sometime in 2019.
