Damon Lindelof’s latest preview for ‘Watchmen from the Emmy Awards doesn’t actually give us much that wasn’t already shown in the most recent trailer, however, it does shine the spotlight on Regina King’s character Angela Abar who is said to be the lead in the series.
It also stresses that thanks to the domestic terrorist group called the Seventh Kavalry we’re on the “brink of war.” This group is the set of characters who all wear masks that look like Rorschach’s from the original graphic novel and film.
You can check out the latest ‘Watchmen’ trailer below:
Lindelof previously shared that the new series is a sequel to the source material and it will be fun to see how the events that are now 30-years in the past are addressed on the show. With Rorschach’s mask being used by these terrorists, it feels that we’ll be seeing more of these events brought up as well.

Of the series, we do know that original creator Alan Moore is said to be “not thrilled” that it is happening. Of course, he also feels that adults who enjoy superhero movies are “emotionally subnormal” so that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that he wouldn’t be a fan of his work being further adapted.
