    I know both endings. And frankly, I don't want any
    "moral f***ing closure!"
    I, and many others, enjoy the book the way it ends. Taking away that element takes away one of the reasons that made Watchmen so great.

    I apologize for being angry, but tampering with Watchmen is like somebody tampering with stuff like "The Godfather" or "The Wizard of Oz" movies

    I know, I know. It's not that terrible, though. It could definitely be worse. At least,
    a third of New York still dies, though less messily.
    And the ending might have been changed in a more recent draft. As of now, I'm still willing to give the movie a chance.

    Thanks. I think that set of buttons is actually pretty rare.

    so am I, I just really hope that
    Night Owl doesn't kill Ozymandias.
    Either way, from what I've read in the reviews, I'm still going to enjoy it.

    He's too young for me. Maybe in a flashback to Vietnam or something. Though he might be too old for that. Hmm...

    That's why I think Liotta would be great as the older Comedian. He's got a bit more age to him. And I think he really looks like Blake in some angled shots.

    He's only three years older though, and that only pushes him up to 50. Blake (or at least old Blake) should be in his 60s, that's why I'm for Farina. Just dye the hair on the top of his head black and you got yourself quite a Comedian:

    Farina is a little small for the part.

    In the book, the detectives comment that
    "..he looked beefy enough to protect himself (they thought he was against at least 2 assailants too) For a guy his age, he was in terrific shape."
    This doesn't sound like Farina at all.

    Well he's 6' 2'', which I'd say is pretty decent sized. He could always just work out a bit before filming. Also, they could pad his costume/clothes a little bit to give him a little more size.

    I think we can rule Bana out as Doc Manhattan. He is in the new Spielberg movie, that probably will still be rolling when they start shooting Watchmen.

    I was thinking Daniel Day-Lewis for Dr.Manhattan if they could get him.

    Ooh. He could definitely act it, but he's a bit old for it. Honestly, though, I think he could pull off being 30ish, especially since he'll be painted blue for most, if not all, of the time. I might just have to add him to my list.

    I agree, plus he really hasn't changed much in the looks department from his earlier films either. He might have to put on some weight though. DDL's in really good shape but he's a tad underweight for a supreme being.:p
