Comic-Con 2012 Video: First Teaser for Starz's 'Da Vinci's Demons' Unveiled
The short spot touts David S. Goyer's pedigree and warns that history -- and perhaps DaVinci's life -- was a lie.
The first teaser for Starz's upcoming historical fantasy series Da Vinci's Demons has debuted and it's just as cryptic as you'd expect.
The drama revolves around Leonardo da Vinci (Tom Riley), abrash and brilliant 25-year-old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist whose intellect and talents will be explored as he struggle to live within the confines of his own reality and time as he begins to see -- and invent -- the future.
Laura Haddock co-stars as Lucrezia Donati, the mistress of Lorenzo Medici and lover of da Vinci in the co-production with the BBC.
While no official footage of the drama was included in the short promo, the vague spot touts creator David S. Goyer's pedigree -- co-writer, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel! -- and offers a few things to ponder before the high-profile project debuts in the spring:
"History is a lie. … His story is a lie."
"History is a lie that has been honed like a weapon by people who have suppressed the truth."
"Centuries from now your own history will also be suppressed."
"Free the future."
