‘Watchmen’ Revealed! Is This the Next ‘Batman and Robin’?

Last night Watchmen director Zack Snyder released photos of the primary cast members in full costume. And there they are! The Comedian, Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Rorschach, and the Silk Spectre, in all their glory. The photos are solid and serious, without a whole lot of wit to them, and certainly not even a whiff of camp. (We wonder what Michael Chabon would have to say about them.) After all those years we wished Hollywood would take Watchmen seriously, we’re glad to see Zack Snyder is, although it’s possible he’s taking it a little too seriously.

And then, the Beat’s Heidi MacDonald noticed something horrifying:

Nipples on the Ozymandias suit. Uh-oh.
