The Watchmen is finally here! I saw it on the eve of the debut of The Dark Knight, the first official full length trailer for Watchmen has arrived. The first time I watched this trailer, it took my breath away. Years of anticipation and so much more has finally led to this debut of the very first real footage – and I really HOPE the movie does NOT let down. Zack Snyder’s a director so…if it’s only 80% as good as the 300, then it should be good right? But I sure hope for better. ūüôā But it’s gonna be hard to top the 300.
Laurie Juspeczyk, the second Silk Spectre, is the daughter of Sally Jupiter, the first Silk Spectre. Laurie’s mother apparently wanted her to follow in her footsteps and so she fought crime for ten years before the Keene Act banned vigilantes. Unlike the other protagonists, Silk Spectre was not based on a particular Charlton character, although her relationship with Dr. Manhattan is similar to that between Captain Atom and the heroine Nightshade. Moore felt he needed a female hero in the cast and drew inspiration from comic book heroines such as Black Canary and Phantom Lady.
