>>98941308>how does Watchmen deconstruct superhero movies, exactly?
You can answer yourself if you actually try. It's the same reason the suits look like movie suits and not cosplay shit. The 40's suits look like the serial suits looked, and the modern ones look how superhero shit looked in the 90's movies. The violence in the movie has consequences, it's not just "cool", people bleeds, people gets hurt, and just like the ending of the comioc was generic and couldnt escape the tropes of the genre the same happens in the movie. Snyder makes sure the "cool" fights are also dirty, and bloody. The deconstruction goes hand to hand with the philosophies of each character, something not muh casuals loves to ignore, the political shit is also great. Henry K would had been ignored by any other director, Snyder had to fight to include him.
