Watchmen Character Posters

Zach Snyder, director of 300 and Watchmen approved the release of these character posters that were previewed at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend.  I really like how the translation from page to screen is going.  From what I have seen of the comic, they've stuck to the color palate and fleshed out the costumes simply to the extent that they have enhanced them for a more realistic world.  Click on any one of the posters for higher-resolution images full of great grimy-superhero-pop-culture detail.

These posters are so fantastic. I'm a little hesitant about how the story will play out, but there's no doubt that the film will be beautiful.

A thought: It's really interesting that Sally Jupiter's poster is the only one without the "Who watches the Watchmen?" graffiti.
