‘Watchmen’ Compared: Movie vs. Comics
The biggest question regarding the currently filming adaptation of Watchmen has to be how it will compare to the original comics series, by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The comics are some of the most highly regarded works ever created, and so the filmmakers face the task of not only making a quality movie, but also of appeasing fans of the book.
A new report over at Slashfilm takes some new photos from set locations and puts them next to Gibbons’ original art, so fans can decide for themselves how close director Zack Snyder is hewing to the source material. The locations include:
- Dr. Manhattan’s lab
- Dr. Manhattan’s apartment
- Rorschach’s jail cell
- The Comedian’s apartment
- Mason’s Auto Repair
- and the New York City streets
