Exactly one-year prior to its release date, director Zack Snyder has released the first official images of some of his Watchmen cast, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan (a long way from Seattle General) as the Comedian.
Others include Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach, Patrick Wilson as Nite Owl, Matthew Goode as Ozymandias and Malin Akerman as the Silk Spectre. Sadly, no advance look yet at Billy Crudup as the big blue naked guy Dr. Manhattan.
Watchmen will open in theaters March 6, 2009.
UPDATE: CinemaBlend has posted a nifty side-by-side comparison of the movie and comic characters (original link spotted on AfterElton.com).
