ONE YEAR TO MIDNIGHT: WATCHMEN REVEALED

with literally a year til the movie releases 6th march 2009, Snyder reveals character designs to further taunt us (with the lone exception of Dr. Manhattan) ... my personal opinions after the image-fest (click on for uber-huge versions):
The Comedian
WATCHMEN_COMEDIAN
whose death is investigated by Rorschach
WATCHMEN_Rorschach
who was a former crime-fighting partner of The Nite Owl
WATCHMEN_NITEOWL
who hooks up with The Silk Spectre
WATCHMEN_SILKSPECTRE
who tries to kill Ozymandias ... but does she succeed?
WATCHMEN_Ozymandias
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.
