Black FreighterSCI-FI spoke to the spousal movie-making machine consisting of director Zack Snyder and producer Deborah Snyder about their Watchmen movie its length — theatrically and on DVD — and what else we may see.

They explained that the movie’s length hasn’t been approved yet, but that they believe they’re close to completion. Deborah Snyder shared that they’re currently at a still very long 2 hours and 35 minutes run time, so it probably won’t be much shorter than that… I hope. I’m all for putting forth a Return of the King effort here.

The movie’s pretty long … compared to 300, which was an hour and 58 minutes. The director’s cut [of Watchmen] is about three hours and 10 minutes long. It has even more than the theatrical version, as far as the detail that gets even closer to the graphic novel.

While 3-plus hours is always a challenge in one sitting, super fans will likely jump at the opportunity come DVD time. And maybe even more so with the eventual addition of the animated Tales of the Black Freighter storyline mixed into the director’s cut; the story within the comic, where a marooned sailor makes a raft of corpses in a desperate attempt to escape.

The Black Freighter version of the movie that we’re working on–which has the ins and outs of the Black Freighter comic book woven through it, with an animated version of the Black Freighter–will be about three hours and 40 minutes, so there’s a huge epic version of Watchmen, which will probably come out after the movie’s theatrical release, for hardcore [fans].

So for those who were still concerned about the loyalty of the Watchmen movie, it seems more likely every single day that you may just eventually have your own very long DVD that’s built to allow you to feel as if you’re watching the book itself, and not a movie born from the book. As if fans needed anything else to make them excited as all hell.
