The clock ticks away as the trailer for HBO’s new Original Series gets released
By Chetan Mehrishi
The 2009 Zack Snyder directed Watchmen left me in awe and wanting for more. In case you’ve missed this underrated masterpiece, do yourself a favour and give it a watch ASAP.
It’s a dark and gritty adaptation of even darker and grittier comic book series of the same name following the lives of superheroes forced to come out of retirement to investigate the murder of one of their own.
A Different story
According to the creator Damon Lindelof TV series would not be a sequel but rather be an original story altogether.
The trailer for HBO TV series however, is telling a different story.
Though he mentioned that the plot of the series would take place after the time the original Watchmen ended. So, we can say that the distopian alternative universe created by the comic books still persists.
About the Trailer
Not much can be said by looking at the 80 second long trailer though it is clear that Rorschach might be making a comeback (#fingerscrossed).
In a world where superheroes are treated as outsiders, it would be a delight to watch what HBO has to offer with its upcoming show.
When is it out?
The show is set to release this fall and I just can’t wait to see my favourite comic book characters coming back to life on the small screen.
