A Watchmen movie extra recounts the tale of the night the masked vigilante was taken down, and of the rare collectible he now treasures.

Sounds excellent. Interesting how they deviated from the comic slightly, is this for more action or to emphasize the pain tolerance of the masked one? :)

Would love to hear that voice and how it differs from behind the mask.

it basically concurs with Cassandra's "Gone" Faust's reports

conclusion: squids is (are) in.

Thanks, DDC and Mr Ex.
Great story - it'll be very interesting to see how this fight scene turns out...I don't think it's too much of a departure from the book...

Well I sure hope the finalized version at least have the word 'face' rather than 'mask'. Calling the mask his face is one of the more memorable characteristics of Rorschach to me.

Eh, I liked it better when Rorschach falls and is instantly pinned down instead of getting up and fighting. Oh, and I hope they keep the "Give me back my face."

Cool that it went down on December 7. That's my birthday (and Tom Waits', whose voice sounds like what I'd imagine Rorschach to sound like).

Fantastic story. It's always very interesting to get these glimpses of the movie-making process from someone who was there.

Adding more action to the scene doesn't sound too far-fetched to me. A real fight scene there certainly seems like it could add some extra oomph to the unmasking. I mean, you have the unstoppable, almost-supernatural Rorschach basically in a berserker rage taking down cops left and right, and then he's swarmed and overpowered and the mask is off and they realize he's just an ugly little twerp who has to wear lifts. Suddenly devastatingly human. Upping that contrast could work brilliantly for dramatic effect if it's done right.

I agree with this, though.

Same feelings here.

I am so glad this movie is going to kick ass! :D

the rare collectable Mr. Ex has, did he make it or was it given to him as like a thank you gift?

also i like the idea of him fighting the cops, sure the comic is better but from a movie stand point him giving a little fight is more interesting.

I agree. I'm sure that the fight between Rorschach and the cops will be very impressive.

Wasn't it obvious from the story?

I'm hoping it's not completely overtaken with slow motion though. A little is okay, but going overboard with it always takes the bite out of fight scenes for me. I want to see Rorschach punching and kicking the hell out of cops in real time, not bullet time.

Meh. Not really news worthy. It's getting to the point where these reports are starting to sound like variations of ones I've already heard. Although maybe slightly better than the usual "working on this movie really was a pleasant experience" ones.

I'm mainly excited about the voice, that's one thing I've really been looking forward to.

And from the amount Snyder is supposed to have been consulting the book, I doubt he'd make the fight scene ballet-ish, that just wouldn't suit the character. I mean it's Rorschach, he's not a ninja, he's just brutally tough and resourceful.

Tentatively excited.

As for slow motion, I don't think the aesthetic would work in this instance. He's fighting for his life, it needs to be of quick pace. And the way that it sounds from the report is a very quick, very brutal fight followed by the un-face-ing. Doubt this will be in slow-mo (and yes, I know who's directing).

I think he means the case.
