Watchmen Featurette – The Characters

Director Zack Snyder takes us on a tour of the heroes and the cast of the highly anticipated Watchmen, opening March 6 2009. Watchmen is not your regular superhero movie. Based on the DC Comics graphic novels created by Alan Moore with graphics by David Gibbons, it boasts an intense, sophisticated storyline in which the characters often cross the line in their duties, but do it for the greater good. “In my movie, Superman doesn’t care about humanity, Batman can’t get it up, and the bad guy wants world peace,” director Zack Snyder quipped to “The average movie audience has seen so many superhero movies, and some of this stuff is hard to take seriously, but then, Watchmen came along and took it to the next level by breaking all the rules.”
