Watchmen star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II shared a new behind-the-scenes video featuring himself as Doctor Manhattan.
The previous two episodes of HBO’s Watchmen revealed that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Calvin Abar was actually a form taken by Doctor Manhattan so he could have a functioning relationship with Angela. While dire circumstances forced Angela to remove the device that allowed Doctor Manhattan to forget his true identity, the powerful being still retained the face of Calvin, allowing Yahya Abdul-Mateen II to continue portraying the iconic Watchmen character.
Now, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has shared a new behind-the-video that offers fans a glimpse at his makeup for Doctor Manhattan in Watchmen. The video, which was posted to Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s official Instagram account, features the Watchmen star grooming himself in full blue makeup Doctor Manhattan in what appears to be his trailer.
Check out the post below to see a new look at Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Doctor Manhattan.
