Major Spoilers Question of the Day: Backwards In Heels Edition

by

Among the few non-disappointing moments of Zach Snyder’s ‘Watchmen’ movie is the fact that they kept Laurie Juspeczyk’s sky-high heels.  (If only they’d have kept any of the other aspects of the comic book character, it might have had some actual potential.)  Still, all the action sequences features Malin Ackerman and/or her stunt double in flats with quick cuts to cover the fact that Silk Spectre’s fashion statement is a major broken ankle hazard.  Similar tricks were utilized (albeit in a much more skilled fashion) in Wonder Woman’s film, leading to today’s stiletto query…
