After the sudden spread of the so-called empowered, people who have started to develop special abilities (or superpowers, to use a more general term), the United Kingdom government has created a special agency lead by the former colonel Spencer Freeman (Elba) and composed of three agents under his direct orders (Lloyd, Hiddleston and Atwell), with the task of tracking down the empowered people around the country and trying to persuade them to collaborate - or even join - them and move to a designed place outside London nicknamed Dreamland, where they can have all the cares and attentions they might need as they learn to control their new developed powers.
Of course this measure has lead to many uncertainties, especially among the empowered people: while some of them are too scared of their powers and want to have the chance to control them so not to hurt anyone - and one of them even joins the agency team (Redmayne), there are some who mistrust the government (Knightley) and others that, have to keep hiding and running (Collins and Turner) as they are constantly persecuted by people and think of Dreamland - which has never been seen by anyone, agents included, and about which the most disparate legends are told - as a prison, and see the whole thing as a pretext to lock them up and experiment on them rather than help them. Tales that are also fueled by the influence of the billionare Peter Sandfore (Freeman) who, thanks to his economic and political supporters and his right hands in the streets to both fight actively the agents (Johansson) and recruite with every possible means other empowereds (Stan), has campaigned against the government and the prosecution, inviting them to raise together against them and warning them not to believe what they have been told.

“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson
“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley
"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney
“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well. It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer
"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy
“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner
“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner
"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance
"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage
