New ‘Watchmen’ Film Image Released – Meet the Minutemen!
Aint It Cool News posted a new image from the big-screen adaptation of Watchmen today, and its a pretty impressive one.
The image features a 1940s-style photograph of "The Minutemen," the precursor to the superteam that came to be known as The Watchmen.
Who are the Minutemen? Well in WATCHMEN – it was the first TEAM of superheroes that formed in 1939 and pulled a BEATLES in 1949. In the pic below you’ll see the classic SILK SPECTRE and NITE OWL… you’ll see CAPTAIN METROPOLIS, MOTHMAN, SILHOUETTE, COMEDIAN, DOLLAR BILL and with the noose… HOODED JUSTICE.
I love this photo… just look at those costumes, the hairstyles and makeup. Isn’t that classic? It’s that attention to detail that I think bodes very well for this project. Cuz with WATCHMEN, the devil’s in the details.
I’ve posted a full-size version of the image after the jump, but head over to AICN for the full story.
