Nice. That’s the first real teaser poster for Watchmen, the movie event of 2009 (at least I’m becoming more and more convinced that this is the case).

While not quite a panel from the first issue of the comic, it’s pretty damn close, and I really appreciate how it retains the look of the book’s logo. What I’m not as sold on is the tagline, but this is a teaser… maybe we’ll get something a little better in the eventual real poster?

In the meantime, I’m wondering if we’ll see the return of those character posters that appeared at Comic Con and nowhere else so far.

And by the way, for those of you behind the times, check out the R rating.
