Usher has signed on for A-Train, a speedster said to be faster than a speeding train. Nathan Mitchell will play Black Noir, a masked superhero with fighting and martial arts skills.

Previously, Erin Moriarty was cast as Starlight, a young woman with superhero powers who can make lightning bolts flash from her eyes. Her dream is to be a real superhero like the famous Seven.

The Seven are the world famous superheroes that abuse their massive celebrity. In return, a group of vigilantes nicknamed The Boys keep the superheroes in check.

Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are set to direct, while Eric Kripke will write the pilot.
