Batman’s Stupid Voice To Star In The Watchmen Movie

So, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that there’s a new Watchmen trailer, you guys. The bad news is what’s up with Rorschach’s voice in the new Watchmen trailer, you guys?

Point: I feel like the world of superheroes is already demanding enough on the limitations of one’s willingness to suspend all of the disbelief that we shouldn’t also have to put up with these strained, faux-menacing gravel voices. Now that it’s an honest to goodness trend for the genre, I feel like we’re just setting up a historical precedent for future mocking disdain, the way that superheroes were derided for decades for wearing all those tights. And I say that as someone who happily suspends the disbelief every time. I’ve seen fucking Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Don’t judge me. As far as the Watchmen is concerned, I think that the trailers look really good, but that Zak Snyder is such a ridiculous garbage clown director from the Ugh, For Real? School of Filmmaking that I’m just totally braced for utter disappointment.

Counterpoint: shut up you gay retard, Watchmen is going to kick a$$!
