New Watchmen Character Art Revealed
Six glorious new posters unveiled

11 November 2008  |  Written by Emily Phillips  

submit to reddit

Here in full posterly gorgeosity are no less than six new posters from Watchmen, featuring the film's primary characters in all their splendour. We don't think it's too gushing to say they look absolutely stunning and should be lapped up by everyone who's counting down the days to the film's release in March.

For the handful of you who have been living under a graphic-novel-free rock for the past two decades or so, the Watchmen protagonists include: The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan); Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup), Ozymandias (Matthew Goode); Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley); Silk Spectre II (Malin Akerman) and Nite Owl II (Patrick Wilson).


The excitement is killing us now - we want to watch the Watchmen! Zack Snyder's long awaited adaptation opens simultaneously in normal cinemas and IMAX on March 6.

RE: Film Rating?
Along with Zack, Producer Debi Snyder has consistently stated that it can only be an R rated movie because of the content (graphic violence, nudity, etc.) and according to lick)rating is as good as official... More

Film Rating?
Has it been confirmed anywhere if this will have an 18/R rating? It could probably get away with a 15 (not ideal) but if it has anything below I will be majorly pissed off. More

WATCH THIS FILM FLY!
Can't wait for March to come around! I'll probably be disappointed in the end but who cares! Never thought I've ever see a Watchmen film hit the screen. ...."Ozymandias looks too skinny, his neck is the wrong shape, blah di blah di blah...." Nit pickers be damned. I don't think there's ever been a comic book movie made that's EXACTLY like the comic. If anyone has issues on the day this movie comes out - might I suggest you all stay at home and watch your copies of Batman and Robin i More

RE:
L: Dr Quinzel As ever, Rorschach and the Comedian are stealing it. Unfortunately Ozymandias still looks like a refugee from a mid-90's day-glo embarrassment. But, to be fair, he looked ridiculous in the comic too, and if the people want a faithful adaptation... hat you have to remember is that Ozy is a walking advertisement.  He is a retired superhero (two years before it became law) who dresses the way he does because he is the live-action version of his own cartoon and toy empire More

Ozymandias
i think the costume for Ozymandias makes sense, i mean if you didnt have any powers but were out fighting crime wouldnt you wanna big yourself up? make people question you? its the same point as Batman makes. yea its a tad camp but so's the Graphic Novel,.... in fact so are most More

Nice!
Love the Comedian poster, the picture especially sums up the character. Though isn't the Ozymandias quote a bit of a spoiler? More

don't know
Really good start thus far. Great posters, the characters look awesome except Ozy who looks very weedy. Morgan as the Comedian looks great. I just have a really bad feeling that I'm going to be disappointed come release. I just don't think it can be made into a film. I hope I'm wrong More

Ozymandias
I agree with Sanchia, Ozy looks a little... thin. Wasn't he trying to be the peak of physical and mental powers? Other than that they look good. Lets hope the style doesn't outweigh the substance as there is a lot of character to cram into a film. More

I like the caption in Manhattan's one, it's in utter contrast to what he realises during the story. More

Ozymandius
I quite like all of them apart from the Ozymandius one. Something about the mask and the pencil neck doesn't ring true. More
