Finally revealed - Zack Snyder's true inspiration for his Watchmen adaptation isn't really Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' original series - but is, instead, classic 1970s/80s cartoon Super Friends. Unconvinced? Check out this trailer for a very special episode of Super Friends and tell us that you don't see the similarity.

Okay, so it may be a fan-made mash-up, but it's also more enjoyable than the actual Watchmen trailer itself. Don't believe me? Watch the two together:
