The trailer, barely 30 seconds long, does not offer much detail or specific footage of the series. For that we will still have to wait. Nevertheless, in it we do see the protagonist of the franchise, Master Chief, donning his already characteristic uniform. In addition, we see very close-ups of his uniform, his armored gloves and his 117 insignia. The person in charge of getting into the skin of the famous character, also known as John-117, is Pablo Schreiber, quite popular for his roles in both American Gods like in Orange Is The New Black.
