The end is nigh. On March 6, "Watchmen" will finally be released. The "unfilmable" adaptation of Alan Moore’s (writer) and Dave Gibbons’ (artist) 1986 dark superhero tale will be unveiled to all the faithful, the knowledgeable, the curious, and the ones caught up in the frenzy.
A central character to the storyline is Walter Kovacs, the vigilante known as Rorschach. After the passage of the Keene Act outlawed costumed heroes, he kept on fighting. In the film, Jackie Earle Haley plays him. Rorschach wears a mask that moves black splotches over a white mask (like a rorschach test), supposedly reflecting his moods. Director Zack Snyder and visual effects personnel worked on the mask, which was key to the hero’s persona.
