Comedian was the best character you phucking phaggot.

You spelled Ozy wrong pleb.

Eddie's a good second place though.

Silk Spectre has a nice ass, though. Who is the phucking phaggot now?

I found out today that this is being made by the guy who made The Leftovers. This is going to be phenomenal.

It's starting!

I'm three episodes away from finishing The Leftovers, and holy hell has it been a good ride. I'm sad it's ending, but this man helming Watchmen is the best pairing they could have made. He knows how to make layered and interesting characters and drama.

Also, it seems the Watchmen are set to join the comics DC universe in November in a huge event called Doomsday.

quote:
Lindelof—who co-created The Leftovers and Lost—said he has "no desire to 'adapt' the twelve issues of the Moore and Gibbons created 30 years ago," echoing statements previously made by HBO president Casey Bloys. Lindelof went on to refer to the original 1986 graphic novel as "sacred ground," adding that those twelve issues "will not be retread nor recreated nor reproduced nor rebooted."

Instead, Lindelof said Watchmen will be "remixed." He likened the original source material to the Old Testament and his HBO series as the New Testament, noting that the New Testament didn't erase what came before and emphasizing that "Watchmen is canon."

He clarified that the series won't be a sequel, but an "original" and "contemporary" work that "must ask new questions and explore the world through a fresh lens." Lindelof elaborated, saying the series "needs to resonate with the frequency of Trump and May and Putin and the horse that he rides around on, shirtless."

Lindelof confirmed "some of the characters will be unknown" with "new faces" and "new masks to cover them." With regard to the tone, he said it will be "fresh and nasty and electric and absurd."


That first paragraph sounds like a whole lot of Alan Moore ass kissing, but whatever.

I love how he wrote his letter like a Dr. Manhattan chapter.

Anyway, a new group of heroes sounds cool to me. Lindelof is good at characterization so I'm sure he'll knock that out of the park. I just hope some of the other heroes make appearances at some point. I'm interested to see how he'll pull it off, though I'm slightly worried too. After reading his letter to the fans though, it's plain that he's a fan too. He won't hurt the universe or continuity.

Oh, cool. I like Lindelof to an extent. Lost could have been good, but I'll blame that on the writer's strike. He also got robbed on Prometheus and was unfairly judged for that. So I hope he is able to follow through completely with this. He's going to have to redeem himself in a big way here.

I'm glad they aren't just redoing the novel. The Zack Snyder film is basically that, so it's already been done.

Watchmen is set in "an alternate history where 'superheroes' are treated as outlaws" and "embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own." -snip


Seems like it's going to both follow the graphic novel but expand out on it's own as there's not enough writing to do 10+ hours of story/filming.

Hopefully all keys points of the story are kept and the extra scenes are character development and more backstory. eg wouldn't mind an ep where it's Doc M and Comedian in Vietnam during the war.

It takes place several decades after the events of the book, so no Comedian or Rorschach. The Doc also completely left the galaxy so I'm assuming he wont be in. It's a completely new cast except for Ozy and Silk Specter (or a character named "Agent Blake" who everyone assumes is Silk Specter).

What in the actual ass?!

This looks like a hard pass for me.

Alan Moore must be vomiting blood right now.
