Director Zack Snyder sat down to talk to the Comic Con audience to discuss Watchmen. He said he was going to make the movie he wanted to make, that it was going to be rated-R and that he hoped Alan Moore would see it one day and not think that "they fucked it up too bad."
He also confirmed all the casting that has been announced including Malin Akerman as Laurie Juspeczyk, aka Silk Spectre; Billy Crudup as Jon Osterman, aka Dr. Manhattan; Matthew Goode as Adrian Veidt, aka Ozymandias; Jackie Earle Haley as Walter Kovacs, aka Rorschach; Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Edward Blake, aka the Comedian; and Patrick Wilson as Dan Dreiberg, aka Nite Owl. To this list he also added Stephen McHattie who will be taking on the role of Hollis J. Mason in the new film.
Snyder also debuted a Watchman movie mini poster, which was given out to the Comic Con audience, and was drawn, at Snyder's request, by original "Watchmen" artist Dave Gibbons. The poster features the release date for the film as 03.06.09, something Snyder said was put on there because he wasn't very good at math and was easy to remember.
The poster can be seen in the Movie Posters section of this site.
