Newsarama has the first photos of the upcoming adaptation of Alan Moore’s Watchmen. Like Moore himself, I’m too skeptical about the comic’s translation to film to get very excited by the movie, but these photos pique my interest. They do an especially good job taking Nite Owl — an unimposing superhero design if ever there was one — and making him look like someone you wouldn’t want to mess with. I hope they portray the middle-aged, flabby guy beneath the mask equally well; if he’s just another riff on Bruce Wayne, they’re going to miss the point of the character.
