With just over two weeks before "Watchmen" hits theaters, Hollywood Outbreak spoke to director Zack Snyder about the nudity audiences are expected to see in his film. More specifically, Dr. Manhattan's blue penis.
Snyder revealed that he was asked by Warner Bros to keep the character's junk screentime to a minimum and while he respects that request, he felt that he needed to be faithful to the source material. As a result, he believes that the first time Dr. Manhattan steps out fully nude, there will be some giggling in the theater.

Hey, it's in the book. It'll be on screen. Snyder wanted to remain faithful. I just hope ppl don't get too thrown off by it. I can just hear the comments now..."The movie was good and all but, the blue naked dude was weird. Why'd they have to do that?" I heard the same kind of crap about Eastern Promises when that came out. Nobody talked about how good the film was. They just kept talking about Viggo's frontal shots.

Manhattan's costume reflects his ties with humanity. As time passes and Manhattan "evolves" he wears less and less. By the time he is naked he has lost all his ties with humankind. I'm not thrilled about looking at some dude's balls on the IMAX screen, but it had to be there. Just be glad he didn't do it with all 300 Spartans. That would have been too f*cking much.

what's the big deal about man-junk?... half the world has it... the majority of the world sees it everyday... It's amusing how there seems to be this phobic stigma cast over the penis... at least in america...
the statue of david would look reallly funny with a fig leaf. Dr. Manhatten will be AWESOME.. good call snyder. If people get turned off by it they can grow up. but i do understand the giggling.. penises just look funny :)...except mine... mine is beautiful! You laugh at it.. I KILL YOU! ;D gosh i'm tired.

Hey, Minkowski Sucks--Awesome username.

I had so much more respect for Viggo after I saw Eastern Promises. (That fight scene reminded me of the shootout scene in the second book of the Dark Tower series, if anyone's read that.) I think it takes some serious balls to let it all hang out there like that.

Penises and Vaginas penises and vaginas. Penis and Vagina. We all have them, some have both. Why do they make us feel uncomfortable?

Exactly, kgoding. All I ever need to know I learned in Kindergarten Cop.
To me it just seems better that he didnt work around that, he didnt bullsh*t us. America needs to see some d*ck and tits on the big screen all up in there face from time to time. Keeps things more normal and real, Thank You Zack Snyder for sticking to the actual way the story was and not bullsh*tting us. f*ck CENSORSHIP!
