6341 Below you can check out the new trailer for David Goyer's Da Vinci's Demons, a new show coming to Starz this April.

Starz sent over the trailer with a tidbit that show writer David Goyer was heavily influenced by his love of comics when developing Da Vinci's Demons, as it features glider wings that are inspired by Batman and an appearance from Vlad Dracula.

David Goyer also compared Leonardo Da Vinci to three heroes, Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Tony Stark of Iron Man.

"I picture him as one-third Indiana Jones, one-third Sherlock Holmes, one-third Tony Stark (Iron Man) - and he kind of was," Goyer said, reports the Shanghaidaily.
