The great blue wang debate




Ok this debate has been raging in my group of friends for the last month or so. As some of you may know the movie The Watchmen based on the comic books by Allen Moore and David Gibbons features a god like character named Dr. Manhattan. Dr. Manhattan being godlike does not seem to feel the need for clothes. As such he walks around much of the movie with his gigantic blue peen dangling in front of the cameras.

It was a pleasant distraction to all the fantastic dystop
ian angst (the books are great btw you are missing a modern literature classic if you don't read it).

Which brings me to the debate. Is Dr. Manhattan cut or uncut?

In the comic it seems he is uncut and I would think because it is such a faithful adaptation of the books and since it is digitally created that in the movie it would also be so. I personally think this picture seems to indicate uncircumsized shlong to me. However lots of people have disagreed.

What do you think? I am going to have to wait for the blu-ray edition to fully *ahem* research the question.

all of human nature is fascinating from the big things to the trivial... plus if you had seen this dick 3 stories tall you would be asking the same thing

I'm not sure where the debate is, he's clearly circumcised.

Simon Thibault said...

the real question is, if it's a completely cgi peen or is the actor that well hung when soft?

Aaron said...

I heard completely cgi. But if not kudos to him!

I'm going to say he's cut. There is widespread hatred for foreskin going on these days. Also, as one that is uncut, I'm not seeing the jimmy with a hoodie thing happening down there.

"Widespread hatred for foreskin?" What planet are you living on. The only place circumcision is really done much anymore is the U.S., and that's only about 50%. Neonatal circumcision is almost zero percent in most of Canada, Europe and Asia, and Australian hospitals are banning it.

The big blue shlong in the movie is definitely not circumcised. Zoom in on this.

I found this comment somewhere: "What I find funny is that there are hundreds of articles about it on the internet, and many of the writers seem to think he is circumcised. I think it's because you can see the shape of the glans under the foreskin (it's modeled very, VERY convincingly)."
