Here's the third video diary for 300 director Zack Snyder's current project, a film based on '80s DC comic Watchmen. It's the most critically acclaimed graphic novel of the 20th Century, which is a roundabout way of saying it's a top notch comic. Here, artist David Gibbons talks us through his evidently childish excitement at how production is progressing. If you're a longstanding fan, try not to let any pee come out - wet patches aren't a good look. If you're not...

What's it about? Set in an alternate 1985 America, where costumed superheroes rub shoulders with everyday society, Alan Moore's story depicts a country and culture plagued by a looming nuclear Doomsday. Expect it to look like something like 300, but be altogether more complex and rewarding (despite the compulsory spandex).

The first and second video diaries are still available online, and you may also want to check out Swedish beauty Malin Akerman (below), who's been cast in the pivotal role of Laurie Juspeczyk, aka The Silk Spectre II.
