The old and new deities on display in Starz’s American Gods opening titles include the famous Las Vegas neon cowboy, a crucified astronaut, assorted metal animals and cars. The strange totem pole gives an enticing look at the series that debuts at 9 PM Sunday, April 30 on the premium channel. Watch it below.

“Is it strange to want action figures from a main title sequence?” co-Sshowrunners and EPs Bryan Fuller and Michael Green said in a statement. “Crucified astronauts, neon cowboys and S&M centaurs — we bow to Elastic and their spectacular vision. A totem of godly visions we didn’t know we needed to worship until they showed us the light with this clarion call to the American Gods.”

American Gods is produced by FremantleMedia North America. The titles were created by Elastic.

The series, says Starz, posits a different kind of war brewing — one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory. Emily Browning also stars, with Pablo Schreiber, Yetide Badaki, Bruce Langley, Orlando Jones and Crispin Glover also in the cast.

Almost exactly one year ago, it was announced that Emily Browning will be playing Laura Moon in Starz’s “American Gods.” On Sunday, at a SXSW panel, the cast and creators dropped another big piece of news: Browning will actually be playing two characters.

Show creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green joined cast members Browning, Ricky Whittle, and Ian McShane at the Lionsgate Lounge for a panel moderated by Variety‘s Elizabeth Wagmeister to talk about the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed fantasy novel. There, they revealed that, in addition to Laura Moon, Browning will also play Essie Tregowan.

“Emily also plays Essie Tregowan, and those who have read the book, Essie was one of Michael and I’s favorite stories in the book. It’s essentially the tale of how Mad Sweeney made it to America,” said Fuller. “And we were talking about casting that role, and as we were in that conversation, Michael said, ‘Oh, we should just cast Emily in this role.’ And then we went to talk to Emily, and it was like, ‘So, the Essie episode’ — she was like, ‘Have you cast that actor yet? Because I think I should play her.’ And we were like, ‘Well, that just worked out well.’ ”

Browning admitted that she had a feeling Fuller and Green would ask her to also take on the second role, but she was hesitant, as she was tired and mostly wanted to “go take a nap, for like, three weeks.” “But, at the same time, the way that the character’s written, it’s so perfect and amazing, and I just knew — I’m like, if they ask me, I’m not — there’s no way I’m going to say no,” she added.

Somewhat indignant, she went on, “But I’ve been trying to keep it secret!”

McShane said that he “never thought there was any question that she was going to do it, when I read it early on.” He also teased a “big, important clue” about his own character, Mr. Wednesday… before the rest of his panel participants stopped him from revealing any more.
