EGO IPSE CUSTODES CUSTODIO?

From the official WATCHMEN movie site ,here's a first look at some of the characters in the flesh.

The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)

Ozymandius (Matthew Goode)

Silk Spectre II (Malin Akerman)

Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson)

And, of course, Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley)

I dunno about you, but these work for me. By why no Dr. Manhattan? No love for blue cok, I guess...

Damn... The Comedian is dead on...

Should be good.

Thanks for the link. I'm optimistic, but will reserve judgement until I see more of Rorschach.

Well, the LOOk is fantastic...

But then, the same was true of League of Extraordinary Gentlement.

Jury's out, prior evidence is against, and the movie still shoulders the burden of proof. Come back later.

...And Ozymandius looks like he should be hanging out at the Mineshaft.

Every time I hear the casting of Rorshach, I get a little happier every time. :)

I hope, but will be surprised if it's good. The story is too intricate to transfer to a 100 minute film.

Yes... but also no, oh no. Looks bitchen, but who is that child in the Ozymandias suit? He needs to be at least 40. Something like Chris Reeve with a dye job pre-mishap.

What is it with so-called movie stars in the 21st century? Even the 35-yr-olds look like kids. It's not just that they cast young.

And SS2 looks comically skinny -- I mean more like a cartoon than a person. Funny, movie adaptations normally go the other way. Speaking of which, and length, a lot of material (like The Black Freighter) will be extras on the DVD. So it's gonna be "modular."
