Is 'Spenser: For Hire' on Netflix? Is 'The Invisible Man' on Netflix? Superhero movies are typically family affairs. But on the whole, even a weirdo franchise full of masturbation jokes like Guardians of the Galaxy still has a talking raccoon and tree in it, two characters that you can find on backpacks and lunchboxes in Target. Even the R-rated Deadpool is weirdly kid friendly, with plenty of action figures found in toy aisles despite starring in movies definitely not appropriate for children.
Episode five even opens with a young Wade Tillman being fellated inside a carnival funhouse. The unexpected detour into superhero porn hails from American Hero Story , the Ryan Murphy-esque show-within-the-show that occasionally delves into Watchmen history, albeit with some fairly liberal dramatic license. The exploits of Hooded Justice quickly attracted the attention of the press, inspiring others—like Mason, the original Nite Owl—to don their own costumes and exact a similar brand of vigilante justice. And so, the golden age of regular-people-pretending-be-superheroes was born. Assembling the team was spearheaded by a former Marine named Nelson Gardner, who put his tactical skills and vast wealth toward reinventing himself as Captain Metropolis. After Gardner finally recruited Hooded Justice to the cause, they became The Minutemen, and quickly set to work doling out all-American justice. Their romance also became a central plot of the Before Watchmen prequel comics, where we learned that an original draft of Under The Hood had actually spilled everything, nearly driving Gardner to suicide, before The Comedian bullied Mason into cutting it. Gratuitous as all that thrusting might have seemed, the scene is actually pretty significant to the story Watchmen is trying to tell, which is at least partially about interrogating which stories we choose to believe and those we choose to ignore.

I admire its grim humor, utilitarian philosophical themes, unique universe and especially its well-choreographed and shot action sequences, which play out balletically in the sort of long, patient shots that are so unusual to see in modern action. There is, however, one scene of Watchmen that I can readily admit is unabashedly terrible. You need to watch it. Warning: Some nudity. The scene comes in a celebratory rush of endorphins as Nite Owl and Silk Spectre come down from the high of performing superhero work for the first time in 8 years, following a government ban on costumed heroism. It also makes said act embarrassing to watch for the audience, because it seems like a guileless boob delivery vehicle. Can we suggest a counselor for you? In fact, I would wager that this version of the song coming on during an intimate playlist would automatically terminate a sexual session at least 50 percent of the time unless the couple were exceedingly committed to ignoring it. The frivolity of it and the lack of meaning for the characters flies completely in the face of the more sober tone that the director is mostly trying to build outside of the action sequences, and considering how closely he attempts to evoke the tone of most other scenes directly translated from the page, it stands as a huge disservice.
We know how Zack Snyder put together the shiny blue god Dr. Manhattan, but what about the more personal scenes? We asked the cast how Snyder went about recreating the sexier panels. Warning: sexy spoilers
