Filming for the new HBO series based on DC’s Watchmen is officially underway. And that means we will be getting our first looks at characters from set. In fact very recently pictures from set featuring Don Johnson’s character leaked, giving us our first official look at the show.
The pictures don’t offer too much in terms of information, nor does it feature a look at the Watchmen.
Now while the identity of Johnson’s character is not officially revealed, these images may offer a hint at it. As we know in the Watchmen comic Hollis Mason was a cop in the 1930’s. And it was also rumored that filming for a scene set in the 1920’s-30’s were taking place recently. So if this filming information is true, based on these pictures Don Johnson may be playing the original Nite Owl, a member of the Minutemen.
It was already revealed that HBO’s Watchmen would take place in present day but it seems we may also see some flashbacks to Watchmen‘s history. For now though we will have to wait for more images from set to be released before we can make further conclusions.
