See, this is what I’m talking about. What Zack Snyder is doing with the Watchmen blog. Instead of waiting for some studio flunky to steal these character posters for his upcoming “Watchmen” adaptation and send them off to AICN for some brownie points, he’s instead posted them on the site’s official blog. Check them out for yourself: Matthew Goode as Adrian Veidt aka Ozymandias, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Edward Blake aka the Comedian, Patrick Wilson as Dan Dreiberg aka Nite Owl, Jackie Earle Haley as Walter Kovacs aka Rorschach, and finally, Malin Akerman as Laurie Juspeczyk aka Silk Spectre.
Here we are, officially one year and counting until the release of Watchmen on 03.06.09.
