Netflix continues to keep a low profile on The Umbrella Academy ‘s third season , sipping new materials from time to time.
Now it’s the turn of seven character posters dedicated to the protagonists, each portrayed from behind under a damaged umbrella.
The posters show Luther ( Tom Hopper ), Diego ( David Castañeda ), Allison ( Emmy Raver-Lampman ), Klaus ( Robert Sheehan ), Number 5 ( Aidan Gallagher ), Vanya ( Elliot Page ) and possibly Lila ( Ritu Arya ).
As we know, in the third season we will meet the members of the Sparrow Academy , composed by Ben ( Justin H. Min ), Marcus ( Justin Cornwell ), Fei ( Britne Oldford ), Alphonso ( Jake Epstein ), Sloane ( Genesis Rodriguez ), Jayme ( Cazzie David ) and the Christopher cube . By clicking hereyou can read the description of these characters, each with a different power. It is no coincidence that the umbrellas of the posters are full of lacerations: it is as if our heroes had been attacked by a flock of sparrows (“sparrow” in English). The shadows show the umbrellas dissolving into the silhouettes of the birds.
The new episodes – out this year – are inspired by Hotel Oblivion , the third volume of the comic by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá . The Oblivion Hotel is a place from which it is not possible to escape, and where (in the original books) the enemies defeated by the team were imprisoned. Of course we don’t know how faithful it will be to the source, as the transposition often diverges.
You can see the posters below.
