Leonardo da Vinci's gone from famous artist to supernatural hero. He's at the center of the new fantasy series Da Vinci's Demons. And the Starz network has released the first trailer, which takes us inside his crazy world.

Da Vinci's Demons comes from the mind of writer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel). It follows the 25-year-old as an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. "As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it." 

In the trailer we hear the haunting words, "This is a dangerous game you're playing." It's a warning Da Vinci takes lightly as he replies, "When's that ever stopped me?"

The drama features Tom Riley as Da Vinci, Laura Haddock as Lucrezia Donati, Elliot Cowan as Lorenzo Medici, Lara Pulver as Clarice Orsini and Blake Ritson as Count Riario.
Da Vinci's Demons premieres in spring 2013 on Starz.
