The first teaser is here and it is great. It gives us more of an idea of when this series takes place. It is after the events of the comic, or graphic novel. We see many donning the Rorschach mask. This reminds me of the end of the Frank Miller graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns, the Sons of Batman. Check out the trailer and enjoy
Watchmen is based on the comic book limited series of the same name created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, that is set to premiere in the fall of 2019 on HBO.The series was created by Damon Lindelof, who is also set to write and executive produce.
Watchmen is set in “an alternate history where ‘superheroes’ are treated as outlaws” and “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”
One thing to remember, Jeremy Irons is in the show and he is playing an older Adrian Veidt / Ozymandias. So, it looks like a sequel.
