Watchmen HBO Superhero Series Release Date, Cast, Trailer

Adapting Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore’s Watchmen graphic book has not precisely been good. But HBO has come forward with a sequel in form of TV series for all kinds that commits to keeping the wistfulness of the original while exploring new territory. A complete Comic-Con trailer showed plenty of colorful vigilantes, surrounded in a war with the Tulsa Police Force. In addition to this, the character played by Regina King is a bit different versus the initially thought.

Here are some details about Watchmen that you need to know:

Watchmen HBO Superhero Series Trailer

Just peeking out of the huge shadow by Marvel, HBO made its stance at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019. Trailers for His Dark Materials, Westworld, and Watchmen all gave some expectations to the Game of Thrones void. (In the meantime, the SDCC panel for Game of Thrones carried on offering premium drama.)

The newest trailer for Watchmen provides a profound look into plot info, comprising a clarification of why the cops of this world use yellow masks—to defend their identities from attacks by vigilantes. One of the most thrilling footages is a scene of a blue handpicking a blue mask up. Is the space-touring Dr. Manhattan prepared to deploy life back from the red planet?

The first look at the 8-episode adaptation by HBO shows that there is not just one Rorschach mask-using vigilante in the series. In fact, there is a whole underground society. Their speaker (shown at the very starting of the trailer) states, “We are no one, we are everyone and we are invisible.”

That does not look good for the fate of this substitute universe, where the “hiding” vigilantes, or superheroes relying on how you see at them, seems to be performing an uprising that might result into a “considering” and battle with the Tulsa Police Force. The threatening chanting of “ticktock, ticktock” surely gives a chill.
