We’d been told that Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen would show Dr. Manhattan in all of his glory, but I didn’t expect to catch a glimpse of his, um, outer boroughs in one of the movie’s trailers.
MTV.com has the official HD version of the trailer that debuted earlier this week at the Scream Awards. About 19 seconds in, there it is — more obvious than Captain America. (The image above isn’t from that scene, of course. I’ll leave that screen capture and zoom-in to someone else. Oh, what the hell: You can see Manhattan’s blue meanie after the break.)
Barring a legal victory by 20th Century Fox, Watchmen will open on March 6.
