I ordered Watchmen and V for Vendetta.


Top choices, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is great as well.


Definately read League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, its one of the few Steampunk stories I like and quite better than the Killing Joke if you ask me.

Thanks, I'll probably get it eventually.

Yikes. Did they animate this for Flash Player or something? It looks so stiff.

Yeah this trailer did everything but hype me up for one of batmans greatest arcs. Even the dialogue is delivered pretty poorly. This movie looks like it's been in development since 1995 lol

Did they change the look of his face and the cowl? It seems to resemble Bollands art a little more now...

The movement is so jarring. They move and then freeze. It's like they're kids playing "Red Light Green Light".

"Bloody images and disturbing content" oh mmyyyyy

The animation in the last trailer looked pretty good, but here it seems too rigid, like it's been animated in Flash or something. Please be good movie ;____;

I think the reason it looks so rigid in the beginning is because they tried to do a slow mo thing for Batman walking. The animation in the rest of the trailer looked fine. Can't wait to finally see the film.

Am I the only one who cringed (in a bad way) when joker said "Why aren't you laughing???" I love Hamill, but that was awkward.

Yeah. It's such an iconic line and I know Hamill can do much better.
