Rorschach Arrives!

Zack Snyder's adaptation of seminal comic tome Watchmen is yet to start shooting, but the good folks over at Aintitcool have managed to get their hands on a test image from the movie. And what better way to begin what will no doubt be be a very long twelve months of Watchmen chatter, than with a street-lit look at that journal-writing crimefighter Rorschach.

In Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons tale of a group of outlawed superheroes (or "costumed adventurers") who re-assemble to make sense of the puzzling events surrounding the murder of one of their own, masked investigator Rorschach is the first character we meet. The below image is only a test shot and briefly appears in the middle of a new and very bloody trailer for Snyder's 300.

There's currently no official word on casting, but Snyder has hinted that there may be a part for his very own six-packing King Of Sparta, Gerard Butler. As previously reported, the director did approach Tom Cruise about the role of Ozymandias, but has since denied The Cruiser's involvement.
