Watchmen : The countdown is started with the first trailer

Tick-tock, the countdown begins until the arrival of the Watchmen on HBO. If one does not yet know the date of the broadcast of the series, the deadline is quickly approaching as it is scheduled for the end of the year. The showrunner, Damon Lindelof will take the distance to the comics, ” says HBO in the description of the Youtube video. “ It takes place in an alternate history where super-heroes are treated as out-of-the-law, this drama series embraces the nostalgia of the novel, graphic novel while trying to innovate.” Enigmatic, the project will therefore not be a true copy of the work of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

“They hibernate.”

Don’t expect to learn much more in this first trailer, which remains very enigmatic. If it is already known that the series will not be a sequel, the context still remains a mystery. It would appear that it focuses on the opposition of a sect, which replicates the costume of Rorschach, the forces of order. Yahya Abdul -Mateen II, seen in Aquaman, will perform Cal Abraham and will be joined by Regina King, who previously worked with Damon Lindelof for The Leftovers. Hong Chau (Big Little Lies), Don Johnson (Django Unchained) and Tim Blake Nelson ( The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) will also be of the party, and will be accompanied by Jeremy Irons ( Batman V Superman) in the role of Ozymandias. The one who has realized the season 2 of Lost , and created The Leftovers knows how to surround himself, and the cast is impressive.

The future of HBO seems assured, because the series has already raised passions on social networks. The creator was even required to write a letter to reassure the fans. Via Instagram, Damon Lidenlof explains his creative process and his approach.
