What We Talk About When We Talk About Watchmen
Dan: I'm really praying that coat somehow makes it in. I really love Nite Owl's look in the comic -- they've really Batman-ized it for the movie, which I understand -- I don't like it, but I get why they did it -- it's what people sort of expect from a character like that now. But I just hope that big, white ridiculous coat makes it, because it was so cute in the comic.
Zach: What about you? Aside from that, what are you looking for?
Dan: I'm just hoping we're getting as much of Rorschach's diary in voice-over, and I hope we get as much of his origin as possible. That issue 6 with the origin of Rorschach is probably my favorite of the twelve Watchmen issues, so I want as much of that as possible in the movie because it's insanely brutal and disturbing.
Zach: Yeah, I hope we get more of that, because that one little flash in the credits isn't very much. And David Gibbons has been saying that for a lot of the Rorschach images that appear on his mask, he drew a bunch and then picked the one he thought would be best for each scene. He was excited to see that the ones that appear in the movie are ones that he drew. So it sounds like they're pretty accurate in that regard. I'm curious to see how much of that Rorschach origin plays on-screen.
