HBO’s Watchmen doesn’t have a panel at Comic-Con this year, but the Damon Lindelof-developed series is aiming to make a big impression with the latest trailer that it just released to fans during the confab.
Set up as a social media activation earlier this week, the latest trailer for the series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic is chock-full of easter eggs for the hard-core and the newbies alike.
Check it out above.
HBO has been ramping up its latest sprawling adaptation of a genre epic with Watchmen, published by DC Comics in the 1980s. Set in an alternate history where superheroes are viewed as outlaws, the series is rooted in the same universe as the source material but strikes out in new directions with unfamiliar characters and a different story to tell. It is eyeing a fall debut.
The loaded cast in includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing and James Wolk.
Watchmen is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, based on characters from DC; executive producer/writer Lindelof, executive producer/director Nicole Kassell, executive producer Tom Spezialy, executive producer/director Stephen Williams and executive producer Joseph Iberti.
