WATCHMEN: First Set Pics

With his last film, 300, Zack Snyder demonstrated he knew how to capture the unique visuals of the comic book medium on film. Now Snyder is currently in production on an adaptation of the groundbreaking 1980s graphic novel Watchmen. It is a project that has been in development with several directors stretching back to the early ’90s, with budgetary concerns being one of the main reasons for the various attempts never being given the go ahead.

Warner Brothers have now released four pictures which are the first glimpses we’ve been given of the fairly massive New York City set built in Vancouver for the production. How massive is the set? Check out Warner Brothers’ Watchmen site for all the details. It’s mind-boggling, but the attention to detail definitely shows, as can be seen below.

The first picture, a corner magazine stand, should be familiar to anyone who has read the graphic novel. Those craving a look at one of the costumed heroes of the story may want to take a good look at the last picture. Click on any picture to make bigger.
