Everybody's watching WATCHMEN

By 10.00am this morning I'd already been sent links to these WATCHMEN character shots by three different people.

The Comedian:


Rorschach:


Nite Owl:


Ozymandias:


The Silk Spectre:


Either people know that I'm a massive WATCHMEN fan, or this movie is already being brilliantly teased out into the public domain, exactly one year out from release. Or both. Probably both.

As for the characters, I think they're exceptionally well realised. I was one of 6,500 people at Comic-con who sat in the palm of Zack Snyder's prodigious hand as he explained some of the challenges he was trying to overcome in deciding how to make the movie, and why he had reached the crucial decision not to try and modernise the story in the style of his predecessors on the project. It felt at the time as though the greatest comic ever written was in safe hands. Seeing these, I'm feeling more confident of this than ever.

For anybody wanting further reading I heartily recommend Zack's own WATCHMEN production blog.
