Not only does the series sound intriguing, but Starz is doing something we’d like to see a lot more of: Promoting it by showing what a star its creator, writer David S. Goyer is. Let’s say that again: Goyer’s a star and Starz knows it.
Comic-Con 2012 Video: First Teaser for Starz’s ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Unveiled

The 1st teaser for Starz’s upcoming historical fantasy series Da Vinci’s Demons has debuted and it really is just as cryptic as you’d expect.
The drama revolves around Leonardo da Vinci, a brash and brilliant 25-year-old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist whose intellect and talents will be explored as he struggles to live inside the confines of his personal reality and time as he begins to see — and invent — the future…
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 delivers 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 men and women who have suppressed the truth.”
“Centuries from now your own history will also be suppressed.”
“Free the future.”
