‘Watchmen’ Costume Details Leaked
Kung Fu Rodeo has posted reports from visitors to the set of "Watchmen" that reveal how many of the characters will look in the live-action adaptation of the graphic novel.
The reports contain some spoilers for people who haven’t read the book. (And if you’re one of the people who hasn’t read it, all I can say is, "Why the heck not?") I’ve posted the descriptions of Rorschach, Silk Spectre and Ozymandias below, but the report has info on just about every one of the main characters.
RORSCHACH – definitely my favorite from the series and looking super creepy in real life. I think most readers know that the rorschach effect on the mask will be done in CG as all the photos I saw of him he just had a blank white mask on. The suit is all brown, which I guess will darken up when filming. Basically looks awesome and one still I saw has him with his grapple hook gun. There are shots of him picketing without the mask as Ernie Kovacs….I still can’t believe this is Kelly from the Bad News Bears…but he’s perfectly freaky for this character. I hope the voice is as good – hurm….!
SILK SPECTRE – Carla Cugino looks AMAZING in a classic 1940’s looking outfit for the Silk Spectre – the bulk of the photos were of her in her youthful days. The photographer must have loved her. Many photos I saw of her in different types of poses and mostly looking like costume color and lighting tests.
OZYMANDIAS – this guy is spooky looking. The shots I saw have him in his purple suit and really weird doll-like eyes, perfectly combed blonde hair. I also expected a slightly bulkier man playing this character since I saw him as more of a retired Captain America but here he looks quite slim. Didn’t see the costume but all the Veidt ads are in there looking just like Dave Gibbons drew them.
