First Look: Complete Watchmen Costumes Officially Revealed!!
As Zack Snyder states on the official blog - here we are, one year from the theatrical release of Watchmen on March 6th, 2009. To ease the pain of waiting another 12 months to finally see the film, Snyder has released complete costumed photos of five of the main characters: The Comedian, Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Rorschach, and Silk Spectre. These may be the most downright incredible photos I've seen in the last six months from any comic book movie. It's time to begin the 12 month process of showing you how amazing Zack Snyder's Watchmen is actually going to be!
Don't let anyone fool you. If you hear other webmasters or critics out there railing on these photos, it's because they can't handle a movie being so good. They've got to tear it apart at any cost and can't just sit back and appreciate something truly amazing. Don't listen to them. These are amazing and I hope you can respect the work that Zack Snyder and his team have put into this.

Notice the updated Owl Ship in the background of Nite Owl's photo? If not, you may want to go back and take a second look. These are the photos that Watchmen really needed in order to start building buzz for it even a year out. You may only be thinking about this upcoming summer's movies, but don't forget to always keep Zack Snyder's Watchmen in the back of your mind.
A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity… but who is watching the watchmen?
I hope by now all of you Watchmen doubters are finally starting to realize that this movie is going to turn out absolutely incredible! What are your honest thoughts so far on all of these costumes?
Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder (of Dawn of the Dead and 300) and written by David Hayter (The Scorpion King, X-Men, X-Men 2) and Alex Tse. The movie arrives in theaters everywhere on March 6th, 2009. Stay tuned for even more Watchmen coverage, photos, and more exclusives right here at FS.net!
