Regina King Is A Badass Vigilante In The Newly Released “Watchmen” Official Comic Con Trailer

The full trailer to HBO’s first superhero series Watchmen was recently released at San Diego Comic-Con. 

According to show’s creator Damon Lindelof (Lost), the new series is a ‘remix’ of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal graphic novel by the same title, which was released in the late 1980s. Per HBO‘s description, the remake is “set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, the series embraces the groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”

In this newly released trailer, Regina King‘s character Angela Abar appears to be a vigilante superhero cop, who is seen kicking down doors and busting heads while hiding her identity under a mask. 

Watchmen also stars Jean Smart (as as a new character named Agent Blake), Jeremy Irons (as Ozymandias), Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson (as an FBI agent), Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and Lily Rose Smith.

Just a few days before the season finale of American Horror Story: 1984 (the ninth season of the FX horror anthology television series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk), we spoke to its star Angelica Ross while she attended the fabulous Charlie’s Angels red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on Monday.

Although not much has been disclosed in general about the ninth (and last) episode of the season, titled Final Girl, Ross says we can expect it to be full of surprises. “You are not gonna believe what happens in the season finale”, she said with a mysterious smile on her face, “It’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be great!” So far Ross’ character Donna Chambers has managed to survive the first eight episodes of the show. Tonight’s episode will reveal her fate.

Ross has also executive produced and starred in a new web series titled King Esther, “A heartwarming story about a trans woman in New Orleans seven days before hurricane Katrina.” It is written and directed by Dui Jarrod  (Lesson Before Love). The episodes are now available on Issa Rae‘s YouTube channel.
