Watchmen Update: New TV Spots, Portrait Book, Zack Snyder’s Cameo

Watchmen Dr. Manhattan Header

The anticipation for Zack Snyder’s upcoming comic adaptation Watchmen has been palpable for some time now. But with the Fox/Warner Bros. lawsuit out of the way and the marketing machine in full sprint toward the finish line, there seems to be an extra measure of excitement among those who hold this property most dear. It is a skeptical excitement, but excitement nonetheless. Now it seems as though we are locked into at least one daily update about the film — so here comes today’s round.

Warner Bros. has released two more TV spots for the film, both of which can be seen below. Each spot has maybe one or two seconds of new footage, which I’m sure many of you will be able to pick out. Check those out below:

Next up is a little report that David Chen filed over at /Film. While attending the New York Comic-Con, Chen was able to spend some time with Watchmen still photographer Clay Enos, who will be publishing a book called Watchmen Portraits. We showed you some of the photos from this book in our preview of the Watchmen: Art of the Film companion book, but Chen goes deeper and has an interesting conversation with Enos. Check out his report here and get your hands on the book over at Amazon.

And finally, one more update found via our friends at /Film. It is a residual scoop from the Chen/Enos article which unlocks the secret behind director Zack Snyder’s cameo in the film. Click the image below to see the high resolution photo and see where Zack pops up in his own film.
