Robert Downey Jr., the Iron Man star takes on the comic-book project “Sweet Tooth” written by Jeff Lemire and published by DC Comics.
The eight-part series will tell the story of Gus (played by Legion star Christian Convery), a young boy who was born half human and half deer. He was raised in his sheltered home in the woods which he leaves to find that the world has been torn apart by a cataclysmic event.
10 years prior, the Great Grumble wreaked havoc and led to the emergence of hybrids just like Gus. It’s unsure whether the hybrids are the result or the cause of the spread of this virus, but these novel creatures are not safe in this new world.
Gus befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Game of Thrones’ Nonso Anozie) who will turn into his protector as the two set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers.
Sweet Tooth will be premiering on Netflix on the 4th of June.
