The Watchmen Teaser Is Here, and Just As Important, So Is Regina King

The first footage of HBO’s Watchmen series has finally arrived, giving us a highly relatable world in which it’s about five minutes until midnight on the Doomsday Clock. Damon Lindelof created this semi-adaptation of the famed graphic novel by Alan Moore, though Deadline has previously reported that “the project is not an adaptation of the 12 issues of the comic but an original story that remixes them.” In the first teaser of this remix tape we see Regina King, who plays a doctor named Erika Murphy; Jeremy Irons as Ozymandias (alias Adrian Veidt in the graphic novel); Don Johnson as a very Don Johnson-type law-enforcement officer; and a whole lot of Rorschachs. The heroes, anti-heroes, and villains (and even some anti-villains) will bring all their moral ambiguity to HBO this fall.
