Michael Chiklis gets a lifetime pass for The Shield (even when he does a bad Cockney accent), so we'll just assume that the comic book he co-created—Pantheon, about ancient gods who visit the near future, "where the only gods worshiped are money and power"—is somehow okay. (Even though one of the powerful gods in the comic does look a lot like Chiklis himself, though with an evil goatee.) In any case, that comic, which launched in 2010, may now become a live-action TV show, according to Deadline. Chiklis is reportedly looking for a showrunner to help develop the series, which presumably he'll star in, since he sort of stars in the five-issue comic series.
