Who says Alan Moore’s grim and gritty superhero tale “Watchmen” is all about the boys and their ability to do very, very bad things to other people and each other? There are also the ladies, in the form of the mother-daughter team that makes up the Silk Spectre — I and II. Silk Spectre I is played by Carla Gugino, while Silk Spectre II is played by Malin Akerman, who fills out that skin-tight pleather uniform of hers like nobody’s business. Here’s a featurette by Zack Snyder and company on the ladies of “Watchmen”, which includes a very cool behind-the-scenes of the prison riot sequence, where Silk Spectre II takes on pretty much every prisoner in the place all by her little lonesome. It’s pretty cool, actually.
And did I mention Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II is all kinds of hot?
