I’ve always been worried about whether this could even be made into a 2-hour movie, and I’ve expressed plenty of concern about the man in charge, but from the looks of things, the visual sense will be absolutely top-notch.

On the official “Watchmen” website,  director Zack Snyder (“300″) has posted the first pictures of five major characters from the movie adaptation of the Alan Moore-Dave Gibbons graphic novel, which is now only one year away from release. Below are Jeffrey Dean Morgan as The Comedian, Patrick Wilson as Nite Owl, Matthew Goode as Ozymandias, Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach, and Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre. Enjoy!

Mmmm… I have to say I’m a bit disappointed that the film is going the Batman/X-Men front with the black leather and rubber.

Of course if there’s one thing I learned from 300, it’s there’s almost no chance of Zack Snyder making this work.

Seeing how three of the five characters basically look just like Dave Gibbons drawings, I think it looks like they’re on the right track. Besides, they’d have to get Rami from Project Runway to work up an Ozymandias costume worthy of the comic. However, it is true that the “300″ pedigree makes my somewhat huge anticipation for this one pretty nerve wracking. Ah well. . .

The Nite Owl look significantly less “dowdy” than the comic did. Not nearly Arthur from The Tick enough really. he’s not suddenly gonna be doing wire acrobatic shaolin moves is he?
