    I am a constant lurker on these boards, yet rarely post.

    Alot of people seem to be 'up in arms' over the nipples on Adrian,

    But I noticed something more while looking at the pictures that I haven't seen Anyone point out;

    The Destroyed Ruins of New York in Lauries background....

    Is this Snyders way of telling us the ending is intact?

    Now all we need for sure is the Squiddy monster

    Also, it doesn't seem that many people have noticed Archie in the back of Nite-Owl.

    That is all...

    I think it's just the tenement fire in Laurie's background. She's indoors; you can't see any other buildings.

    Yeah, that's just the tenement fire behind Laurie. Besides, that aspect of the ending was never up for change. None of the scripts had the disaster not occuring, as far as I know. The aspect peopel were worried about was the giant squid and the death of Veidt. I could go either way on the squid (i'd be fine if it was some other big disaster), but the fate of Veidt is damn important. I trust that Snyder will keep it the same as the book, though.

    It's funny you made this thread. I was thinking about this last night.

    I was looking at the Comedian's photo and wondered if that shot is from when he and Nite-Owl were in the city fighting back the protesters. Especially since he made the comment about how they crowd needed to back up since he had "rubber bullets" and that looks to be what he has in the photo. Of course, the Comedian is sans-mask and gas mask, but it's a possibility. :D

    Those aren't rubber bullets across his chest those are grenades. What he has there is a grenade gun. They are probably supposed to be gas grenades. If I remember correctly the Comedian tells the crowd to disperse and then shoots a gas grenade into the crowd and they go running.

    That makes sense then, because he has the same gun in the comics during that scene. He makes the comment about the rubber bullets while standing on the front of Archie during the riot. I just thought that those were rubber bullets due to their size.

    I think rubber bullets are the same size as regular bullets... though I could be wrong.

    I just thought that they were larger than conventional bullets to prevent skin puncturing. I'm just a graphic designer though, not in riot control so I don't know for sure, haha. I think I am at the splitting hairs point, lol.

    You assumed correctly, they are indeed larger than regular bullets. And I think that's probably what the Comedian has in that pic (I don't think they're big enough to be gas grenades).

    Look at me, I'm discussing pieces of prop here.

    If you look at all of the photos, Rorschach and Ozzy's photos have a cold feeling (blue overlay), while Spectre, Comedian, and Nite Owl all have a warm look to them (brown/tan overlay). I don't know if that was intentional or not, but to me it lends a little bit of foreshadowing about the character in the movie.
