Our friends at FilmIck have posted a visual guide to the Watchmen casting. The guide compares the characters to the various actors who were supposed to play them over the years. I’m unable to connect some of these names to the directors, but most of them seem legit. Click on the image to enlarge. Watchmen is a classic graphic novel, and I’ve had a lot of pretension to a big screen adaptation. But after hearing Zack Snyder speak about the project at Comic-Con, I was immediately sold. He said all the right things, and addressed most, if not all, of my hesitations.
“I don’t know if Watchmen should come to the people, or if the people should come to it,” says Snyder. “If you get in the place in your life when you need watchman you’ll go find it. I don’t think we’re going to try to make it accessible to teenyboppers.”
Snyder’s Watchmen will hit theaters on March 6th 2009.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
