CCI 2019: HBO Gets into the superhero game with first “Watchmen” trailer


HBO has been rather quiet in the age of superheroes. But all that is about to change this fall as they tackle what is arguably one of the most definitive superhero stories of all-time: Watchmen.

You’ll remember Zack Snyder released a film by the same name about a decade ago. That film, while still very polarizing, is an almost frame-by-frame telling of the graphic novel. What HBO is trying to is drastically different and, if nothing else, quite daring.

What HBO seems to be doing is telling an original story that tackles the big ethical questions of the superhero world that takes place within the original Watchmen universe, just after the events of the movie. It’s a fascinating approach that is sure to leave viewers guessing. See the full trailer below.
