Watchmen Reboot Unveils Characters
This weekend harboured a few sneak peaks for the comic book world. Keeping their cards close to the chest, HBO haven’t given much up on what will feature in the Watchmen reboot. Fans will be happy to note that, thanks to the folks at the Hashtag Show, we now have a look into the characters and people who will make up the Watchmen cast.
The full casting breakdowns are listed below:
Angela Abraham: African-American female cop. Independent and intelligent, she’s also a realist. She’s married to Cal, with whom she has a daughter and is fiercely protective of them both.
Cal Abraham: African-American male who is the stay-at-home husband of Angela. While he seems at home as the king of his castle and being a loving husband and father, it’s clear his past has a different story to tell.
Looking Glass: A good looking cop, the native Oklahoman isn’t simple as his rural accent makes him appear to be. A top interrogator and behavioral scientist, he may also be a bit of a sociopath.
Panda: An ethnic desk cop, he’s cynical and tough and puts his job first. Not a friend to many, he uses comedy to keep people at bay.
Red Scare: Mafioso, track suit wearing cop. His Russian accent lends to his abrasiveness.
Pirate Jenny: An androgynous and lustful bisexual cop, Jenny is an anarchist at heart.
Jane Crawford: The wife of the police chief, Judd, Jane is a veterinarian who’s sharper than her guarded persona lets on.
Old Man: A former cop who is still an imposing figure despite his age.
Other than that and a forever vague ceo claiming the process is coming along, HBO have still haven’t released anything concrete. No release date either.
The only thing that is certain, Alan Moore will hate this iteration just as much as he hated Zack Snyder’s 2009 big screen adaptation.
More Watchmen news soon (hopefully).
