The first scenes of the long-awaited Watchmen adaptation are playing before all showings of The Dark Knight this weekend (watch it in hi-res here) and Gizmodo puts it best with a rhetorical "Does it meet your excruciatingly-high expectations so far, or do you already think it's ruined the greatest graphic novel EVAR?" But lets put that all aside and talk about the film's newest character: Billy Corgan. How'd he get here? Is the Pumpkins song that scores the trailer better than the theme to the worst Batman? Another "Eye"? Does anyone care? Who-ooh wants that ho-oo-ney?
