New Watchmen image emerges; Zack Snyder responds to settlement

Watchmen director Zack Snyder has launched a new Web site for his production company, Cruel and Unusual Films.

Snyder also provided with a new image of Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley, above) with his grappling hook from the movie's opening scenes, in which the masked hero investigates the death of the Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Snyder also talked with Entertainment Weekly magazine for the first time about the recent settlement of a lawsuit by 20th Century Fox and Warner Brothers, which clears the way to the film's March 6 opening. "[It's] a big relief to me," he told the magazine. "I'm glad that cooler heads prevailed and the fans are not going to have to resort to any criminal acts [laughs]. I'm half-joking. I'm glad there's that kind of passion, I guess."
