Watchmen character pics!

Mar. 6, 2008by: Mike Sampson

Today, in honor of having exactly one year until the release of WATCHMEN, director Zack Snyder posted our first full look at five of the superheroes in costume on the film's official site. You get Jeffrey Dean Morgan as The Comedian, Patrick Wilson as Nite Owl, Matthew Goode as Ozymandias, Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach and Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre. I'm sure most of you have tuned me out by now, but some pretty impressive stuff! I'd follow Snyder into a Rue McClanahan biopic at this point but what he's been able to do with this material really impresses me. Let's get a teaser trailer already!

Dude, this is going to rock! And I haven't even read the graphic novels. I guess I'd better!

Are these guys Batman rejects? Did Christopher Nolan okay these guys to use the test batman suits? If not they better watch out because they will have Batman out to get them and the Joker and Two-face trying to kill them.

Looking Good!

Everyone one of 'em looks great, although I'm not quite thrilled with the "ears" on Nightowl...but hey, I'll take 'em. I'm just thrilled to be getting the greatest comic graphic novel ever made into a great movie.

Who watches the Watchmen? I will...probably several times.

I know nothing about WATCHMEN, so keep this in mind when reading my post.

I'm not quite to the point of getting overly excited about this film (I emphasize not "quite"), but I do like these images. Nice, dark mood to all of them with some cool costumes. Maybe a teaser will get me more pumped. Or maybe I should just read the comics. :)

Love Ozymandias's Costume the most.

If people would stop bashing Ozymandias's costume they would know its based on Roman and Greek battle armor. So if you look at the armor from Gladiator you will see the six pack outline and nipples are included. So top criticizing it because its nothing like Batman & Robins costumes.

PLEASE...

...by Odin's beard let this movie be a hard 'R'!!! Finally a superhero movie for adults. These pics look awesome and if they're indicative of the final product we're in for a fucking treat. The only thing I'm hating about this movie: it's a whole year away.

Oh, and here's to hoping we get nipples with Silk Spectre's costume too.

If anyone from joblo reads the comments, you need to start putting *Not Safe For Pants (NSFP)* spoiler warnings. Because every time something awesome is posted, I have to go the mall to buy new pairs of jeans ;)

Not only can joblo coin the term, but you can sue anyone that uses it. Thus increasing the advertising profit =)

Note: this is red because I want my rant/idea to be seen!. hahah

Pro-Nipples

Crazy to say, but it does it work with the costume. Never thought I would say that in a "post-Batman and Robin" world...but yeah...I just did.

Wait One Goddamn Minute....

Does Veit have nipples on his fucking costume??! Are you shitting me?!! Did they hire the costume designer from Batman&Robin or somethin? I would've thought Snyder would have the good sense to stay far, far away from that territory....

Aside from that, everybody else looks pretty good, especially Comedian and 'Scach. I'm still a tad underwhelmed though....

First Post Ever!!! 'Watchmen' Can't Come Soon Enough!

Hey guys, this is my first ever post here on joblo, and wow, what an article to post on! With these images, it looks like Snyder is doing something very damn right! The earlier production stills were good, but now that we can take a look at the characters, we can actually see what Snyder has been able to piece together. Here's to hoping this film is as good as it looks!

P.S.: Grettings Schmoes!

Man I was so sure it was a 2008 release

So I stand corrected. 2009 will also be awesome - we've got Watchmen and Cameron's Avatar.

And Hartman, I'm so pumped for Indy 4. The list in my previous post contained only the superhero films I'm anticpating this year. There are so many other films I'm aching to see this year - Indy, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder, Sex and the City ... wait, ignore that last bit

Just realized

No Doc Manhattan. I'm assuming that will be a bigger reveal closer to the release of the movie. And now I have total faith that he will be just as awesome as these pictures.

HOLY FUCKIN' SHIT!!!

This might even be as good as The Dark Knight!

I've read Watchmen about 8 times, and couldn't picture it as a movie until now - I kinda figured if it were made into a feature film, that whoever directed it would butcher it...Obviously I was wrong, and gladly so!!

Looks amazing. this shows the sucky superhero movies that with some time and a lot of dedication,preparation, they too can make an awesome movie that real fans and causal moviegoers will want to see, not just lemmings and sheep.

Mr. Zack Snyder sir, you are obviously on the right track! Kudos and salute to you!

I mean, they do look really good. Especially so The Comedian, Rorschach, Ozymandias, and Silk Spectre II. Okay, so that's all of them except Nite Owl - he DOES look awfully Batman-ish, but I'd imagine the dark tone of the picture is adding to that, and he'll look more unique as we see more of him.

This is awesome. Seriously awesome. I just wonder what Doctor Manhattan will be like. Will he actually be a buck naked blue guy growing to gigantic proportions (ugh, that sounded
