Showrunner Damon Lindelof wants to know how we feel about heroes as ‘Watchmen’ gives us another take on exploring what they mean to society and how the concept can be twisted and reimagined. We know that the upcoming HBO series is set as a future to what the graphic novel originally explored and now he and the cast are opening up as to what they have in store for us. The featurette not only lets the cast drop hints as what they hope to accomplish while entertaining us, but we’re also treated to new footage from the show as well!

I feel that one of the best comments by Lindelof here is that for newcomers, it will be okay if they haven’t read the graphic novel or seen the film adaptation. While I’m sure that anyone here who is interested in the show has experienced the story in at least one of these mediums, that won’t be true for much of HBO’s audience.
