DC Comics' Before Watchmen

Just a quick update on the potential TV series adaptation of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen being developed at HBO.

We first heard HBO was considering a Watchmen series back in 2015, when Zack Snyder, who directed a movie adaptation of the comic in 2009, was attached. A couple of years later we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof was joining the project, now with Snyder no longer involved. Then, this past September, things progressed when HBO ordered a pilot episode of the potential series.

And now we know who will direct that pilot. It’s being reported that Nicole Kassell has been locked in to helm the first episode, which could lead to a full series order from HBO if all goes well.

Watchmen

In 2015 it was reported that HBO was considering a TV series based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen. Then, earlier this year in June, we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks to work on the potential series.

Now comes word that things have taken another step toward the series becoming a reality. HBO has put in an order for a pilot episode of the series, and they’ve also commissioned more scripts. In addition to that, a writer’s room for the series has also begun work on the show.

Snyder has since departed the project, but now a new talent could be coming aboard. It’s being reported that Damon Lindelof, co-creator and showrunner on LOST and HBO’s The Leftovers, is currently in talks to join the project.

Honest Trailers Watchmen

Before watching characters from Zack Snyder’s DC Cinematic Universe have cameos in Suicide Squad this week, let’s revisit one of his earlier works. Before he turned the beloved comic The Dark Knight Returns into the universally polarizing Batman v. Superman, he turned the MOST beloved comic all time into… a universally polarizing movie. This week, Screen Junkies tackles Snyder’s 2009 adaptation of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons classic, Watchmen, and gives it the Honest Trailers treatment.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Watchmen

It’s being reported that HBO is actually considering a possible new series adaptation of the legendary Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic book Watchmen.

Many of you will recall the 2009 movie adaptation of the same name, directed by Dawn of the Dead (2004), 300, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder, which was far better than anyone expected the once thought un-filmable adaptation to be. It’s Snyder himself who is currently in talks with HBO about the potential for a series based on the comic.

Watchmen Spongebob Mashup

Mashups are a way of life today. Hell, I’ve probably got ten t-shirts with some sort of weird mixing of characters or movies. Having now babbled for a few second, I will get to the point. Going by the moniker El Cid, Rodrigo Huerta gives us one of the funniest mashups ever: SpongeMen SquareWatch. Transforming the characters of SpongeBob SquarePants into the heroes and villains of the Watchmen, Huerta creates comic gold on YouTube. Amazingly enough, he’s made several of these and this is the first I’ve heard of him.

Check out the video here below and make sure you aren’t drinking anything you don’t want to spit up while laughing!

Zack Snyder Made ‘Watchmen’ To “Save It From The Terry Gilliams Of This World”

Watchmen Director Zack Snyder

One of the most polarizing movies to be released in the past few years is Zack Snyder‘s Watchmen. While the director achieved the impossible by adapting the virtually unfilmable comic book for the big screen, there are those who say that he didn’t stay true to the source material from creators Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. But producer Joel Silver declared that Snyder’s take on Watchmen was “too much a slave” to the comic, and added that Terry Gilliam‘s version over at 20th Century Fox would have been much better.

But Snyder isn’t just going to take comments like that sitting down. He is going to fight back. Hit the jump to see what he said.
