It was just over a month ago when we shared what seemed to be the final trailer for the “Watchmen” show that begins its first season tonight on HBO and if you are still a bit in the dark about it just click HERE to get yourself up to speed. The new series makes its debut on the Premium Cable Channel tonight so if you don’t have it you are out of luck. Time to kiss up to a friend with access on their Roku or sign up via your providers. Here is the Official Poster, premise and casting.
We’re closing in on the premiere of the HBO Original Series “Watchmen” which is of course a connected story line to the comic book series and film that bore the same name. The fans at San Diego Comic Con got a nice first look at it but now its time to share the first proper Official Trailer. I’ve embedded that for you down below and of course the premise and the casting before some editorial notions. Let’s take a look.
I hope you’ve been enjoying all of the items from this years Comic Con International: San Diego because its been a blast calling all of these things to your attention. This event is one that really finds me pushing the content envelope of our Pop Culture focuses with the occasional other category as its suitable. So a few months ago I lined out the nominees for the vaunted Will Eisner Comic Book Industry Awards and if you missed that just click HERE to review. The winners were announced the other day and I’ve only listed those names and not the ones that they beat out for the honor. Take a look and we can catch up again at the close.
Best Short Story:
“The Talk of the Saints,” by Tom King and Jason Fabok, in Swamp Thing Winter Special (DC)
Best Single Issue/One-Shot:
Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man No. 310, by Chip Zdarsky (Marvel)
As you’ve likely determined, the reveals from the SDCC 2019 event have been keeping me busy with our Pop Culture side of the fence and since there was so much, I venture to guess that I will be posting a lot more content in the days that follow it. Yesterday, CBS All Access delivered the first full trailer for the 2020 airing “Star Trek: Picard” series. As you know, this is the exclusive streaming service from the popular network and has so far given us series such as “Star Trek: Discovery” and “The Twilight Zone”. Now let’s watch yon trailer, review the premise and casting before I add in any additional editorial notions.
The reveals from this years Comic Con International: San Diego have been bountiful as you can see by clicking HERE but there was nothing that I was interested more in the revelations and announcements from the Marvel Studios panel at the hallowed “Hall H”. What I’ve done was taken the tweets as they went live on their Official Account and added them here so this post is a bit “live” for the duration. As everything is happening too fast to mull upon the ideas and announcements, I will be adding additional editorial in post. Let’s go and be aware that this postwill feature some spoilers to the outcome of “Avengers: Endgame” since that film came out back in April and if you are someone who’s waited this long it probably doesn’t matter to you anyway.
First of the announcements comes the news about the “Eternals” film with the cast being cited as well. I should stress that I was not watching the Hall H panel as I had hoped to be since I don’t think it was streaming anywhere and was just keeping pace alongside the assorted feeds I was following.

Eternals: In my vast collection of individual comic book issues, I do admit to owning at least a dozen issues that feature “The Eternals”. However, that being said, I was never much the fan of the Kirby creations and wonder how a movie about them can be made to work. Sure, Marvel Studios made “Guardians Of The Galaxy” work out to excellence with a cast of characters that were not the traditional GOTG to many of us so I have some faith. While skeptical, I am willing to let Marvel Studios work their magic.
Just announced in Hall H at #SDCC, Marvel Studios’ THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER, an original series with Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Daniel Brühl. Streaming exclusively on Disney+, Fall 2020. pic.twitter.com/FmFMKWUrhO
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: This is the first series announced the for Disney+ service which I will be subscribing to without hesitation. This one picks up post “Avengers: Endgame” and will likely follow Falcon as Falcon Cap since he has the shield now after the outcome of that last film. I’m very excited about the return of Zemo and knowing that he will be sporting the famous red hood that he is known for in the comics.
