Who Watches the Watchmen on HBO?
The watershed 1986 limited comic series, Watchmen, is coming to a screen near you! Again! For the third time – if you count the motion comic – Alan Moore’s classic story, with beautiful art by Dave Gibbons, is being adapted for viewers to enjoy and bask in the nihilism and philosophical complexities.
HBO has confirmed that they have met with Zack Snyder. Zack Snyder directed the 2009 movie before going on to direct Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman, and it looks like he may be producing the HBO series. No direct confirmation or even rumors have sprung up to discuss just what this series will be, whether we can expect a more faithful adaptation or something more along the lines of the recent prequel comics.
