HBO released the first teaser for the upcoming reimagining of the classic comic book series Watchmen.

Created by Damon Lindelof, Watchmen is a modern-day reimagining of Alan Moore’s groundbreaking graphic novel about masked vigilantes. The first teaser seems to indicate that the legacy of Rorschach is alive and well in modern times and that a cult has formed around him. A cult whose actions seem to be targeting everyone.

It will be interesting to see if this cult prompts any of the characters to put on their costumes again to fight back and what that might look like in a society where masked vigilantes are still illegal.

Watchmen stars Academy Award-winner Regina King, Don Johnson, Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Louis Gossett Jr.

Watchmen is set to premiere this fall on HBO.
