The release of the movie Watchmen will probably be postponed… Greedy Fox is quite jealous of Warner Bros’ success and recently asked a judge to block the release! What a negative buzz for 20th Century Fox… But even if the movie is delayed and Fox happens to prevail at the end, I would still go see the Watchmen. Damn this movie looks too awesome for one to miss it! Just have a look to this Watchmen featurette in which Director Zack Snyder gives an overview of the movie and in which he presents the characters of the Watchmen universe:
WATCHMEN – Featurette with Director Zack Snyder
Below the cast and the respective roles:
– Jackie Earle Haley as Walter Kovacs / Rorschach: A superhero who continues his vigilante activities after they are outlawed. He was transformed over time from a “soft” costumed hero into a killer who sees the world in black and white.
– Malin Akerman as Laurie Juspeczyk / Silk Spectre: A retired vigilante superheroine. Akerman described her character as the psychology and the emotion of the film due to being the only woman among the men.
– Billy Crudup as Dr. Jon Osterman / Doctor Manhattan: A superhero with genuine powers who works for the U.S. government.
– Matthew Goode as Adrian Veidt / Ozymandias: A retired vigilante superhero who has since made his identity public.
– Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Edward Blake / The Comedian: A vigilante superhero who is commissioned by the U.S. government.
– Stephen McHattie as Hollis Mason: The first vigilante to take up the mantle of Nite Owl.
– Carla Gugino as Sally Jupiter: A retired vigilante superheroine, mother of Laurie Juspeczyk and the first Silk Spectre.
– Matt Frewer as Edgar Jacobi / Moloch the Mystic: An elderly rehabilitated criminal, known when he was younger as an underworld kingpin and magician.
– Niall Matter as Mothman: He is not a main focus of the storyline, but appears in flashbacks, at one point reduced in his later years to fragile sanity, unnerving the second Silk Spectre. He is regarded fondly by most of the Minutemen, and the first Nite Owl sends the second to visit him, uncostumed, on his behalf.
– Dan Payne as Dollar Bill: A first-generation crimefighter who caught his cape in a revolving door during a bank robbery and was shot to death.
– Danny Woodburn as “The Big Figure”: A dwarf crime boss whom Rorschach put in prison.
Director Zack Snyder made a hell of a job on this movie. Let’s pray for Fox and WB to reach an agreement as soon as possible: we are all waiting for the Watchmen!
