From a press release
Burbank, Calif., March 2, 2009 – Warner Bros. Digital Distribution have announced Watchmen: Justice is Coming, an online multiplayer game for the iPhone and iPod Touch based on the upcoming film Watchmen, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures. Available from the iTunes App Store this March, Watchmen: Justice is Coming will take iPhone gaming to a new level allowing players to battle in realistic 3D environments and visualize changes to the world in real time.
Watchmen: Justice is Coming is a multiplayer online adventure fighting game developed by Last Legion Games exclusively for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The game will use “cloudMMO,” Last Legion's patent pending cloud based multiplayer technology that leverages Amazon.com Web Services allowing players to adventure through the incredible world of Watchmen. Players will experience an ever-changing gaming environment, chat with other players and participate in street battles.
In Watchmen: Justice is Coming, players bring their own unique form of justice to New York City in the 1970s before the film’s central story unfolds. Masked adventuring has been outlawed. During this critical time period, crime is rampant and average citizens must take matters into their own hands to survive. Players create their personal avatar and enter the rain-soaked city of Manhattan. The dark metropolitan world is a vast network of interlocking and overlapping spaces that include: the seedy and saturated neon Red Light District; a run down Financial District and its dark waterfront; the downtown back-alleys of Lower Manhattan; a wide open City Park; and more.
An original story inspired by director Zack Snyder’s big screen version of Watchmen, which is based on the graphic novel illustrated and co-created by Dave Gibbons, Watchmen: Justice is Coming leads players on an immersive adventure inside the depths of the Watchmen universe. Average citizens evolve into fully equipped costumed avengers by completing unique challenges, exploring the universe and battling enemies.

MTV Splash Page has your exclusive first look at artwork from the live-action 'Street Angel' movie, based on Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca's super-sweet indie comic of the same name.

The following story contains 'Watchmen' SPOILERS so we'll spare you some of the details. Click through to the original write-up on MTV Splash Page if you don't mind the spoilers.
The new Zack Snyder movie features a fictionalized version of real world automotive icon Lee Iacocca, who rescued Chrysler from the brink of ruin in 1980s. Needless to say, the movie Iacocca is presented in a satirical manner that the real Iacocca may not appreciate.
MTV contacted Iacocca's reps and found out they knew little to nothing of the movie. Indeed, when MTV broke the news to Iacocca's people about how he's handled in the film they seemed somewhat displeased and have requested a screening of the film and an explanation from Warner Bros.
Huntington played Jimmy Olsen in the Superman film and was seen more recently in 'Fanboys'.
Huntington will star as Marcus, sidekick to Routh's Dylan Dog.
Collider was able to chat with both actors about the casting on the yellow carpet of 'Watchmen'.
