Watchmen Comic-Con Trailer Reveals Return of Doctor Manhattan

A new trailer for HBO's upcoming series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen debuted at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The video, which you can see below, starts with Hooded Justice engaging in vigilante activities, though it's later revealed to be a show on TV. The footage then pivots to the investigation of the Rorschach vigilantes. The video also focuses on FBI Agent Laurie Blake, known as Laurie Juspeczyk/Silk Spectre in the comics. She's the daughter of Sally Jupiter and Edward Blake and has seemingly taken her father's last name. The end of the trailer shows a man in a suit leaning down to pick up a blue mask, revealing his hand to be blue, like Doctor Manhattan, indicating the god-like character has returned after leaving at the end of Watchmen.
