In the Middle of All Those Half-Naked Men

Oh, but I do so love me the comic book fan boys.

The clip at the bottom of this posting is one of the newer trailers for 300 which opened today.

From what I've seen so far, the film's director Zack Snyder is filling the screen with the gorgeous and gore-filled comic book spectacle and more chiseled abs and hardcore pecs than have ever been captured on film.

I never thought I would say this, but it may be better than a Shane Rollins gay porn.


But believe it or not, all that leather-thonged man flesh is not the best part. Look at this image that mysteriously appears in the YouTube clip at time marker 1:52 (or time left 3:38) for a brief but glorious nano-second. Ain't It Cool News captured the image and it is...


Rorschach is a central character in the grand-daddy of graphic novels, THE WATCHMEN written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons.

Maybe the image is Zack Snyder teasing us fan boys or maybe the image was placed there by some WATCHMEN fan with way too much time on his hands. I sincerely hope I'm being teased.

This is Zack Snyder. Yeah, I'd LOVE for him to tease me. He makes comic book movies AND he's humpy. What more could I possibly want?

A WATCHMEN movie has been announced and cancelled more often than Britney has entered and left rehab, but it looks like Zack is moving this project forward quickly.

And I'm sure if 300 has a killer weekend (pardon the pun), I will be sitting at the midnight showing of THE WATCHMEN in 2008.

My bf is a huge fan of the director. We are both going to see 300 but have to wait until next weekend. The reviews look good.

Whim - The reviews have been great! I can't wait to see it!

Ask your bf if Zack is gay.

Please say he is...
