the watchmen revealed

i've been pretty sloppy in my coverage of the live-action WATCHMEN movie (directed by Zack Snyder) of late, with quite a number of posts (for my dedicated fan-blog) in prep-development-limbo ... and with the recent wrap of the production-shoot and with one year to go til the movie releases (on 03.06.09), the "fear" is, there may not be much to post about (i actually have everything "planned" out, but have nary any time as this blog is my main focus *sigh*), unless of coz the powers-that-be grants us wee boons of glimpses, in particular; the characters ... and man, have they dropped a huge one on us = 5 Watchmen-character designs has just been revealed!

readers of the comicbook-source would know. heh.

seriously tho, first impression when i glimpsed these images was "woah. hawt." - quickly followed by "WTF?" - then sideswiped by "Mystery Men" = remember the Ben Stiller-starring movie a whiles' back? (also an adaptation of a comicbook?) ... well, the notion and tone kinda reminded me of that, but of a more "lush-er" scale, and im undetermined as yet if i do like these new fangled Bat-suit-theology based-on "reality"-creations, becoz suddenly, i don't really recognize the comicbook i luv anymore - but of coz there's the basic character-traits ... or does it mean it'll take time to "sink in"? ... fine, let's give it some time, shall we? and of coz there's still the nekkid Dr. Manhattan to look forward to, innit? ... meanwhile, im imagining how to kitbash a 1/6th Comedian and/or Rorschach now! muahahahahaha ... heh.
