Official ‘Tenet’ Synopsis Reveals John David Washington’s Intriguing Character Name

A new Tenet synopsis reveals new details on the upcoming Christopher Nolan film and John David Washington’s character.

Christopher Nolan pulled back the curtain a little bit on his upcoming film, Tenet, with the release of an action-packed trailer. In true Nolan fashion, the new trailer just had audiences asking more questions about the film. One of the most interesting elements the trailer revealed is that the film is dealing with inversion, not time travel.

The new Tenet trailer also provided a new glimpse at John David Washington along with Robert Pattinson and others. Based on a new synopsis released by Warner Bros. Pictures, it appears that John David Washington’s character will be known as the Protagonist. You can read the official synopsis for Tenet that provides a little bit more insight on the upcoming film below:

“John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.” Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.”
