Why can't HBO make the 100Bullets series already? Wtf are they waiting on, that will definitely be a massive success.. Tom Hardy has been pushing for it, and for good reason too.
Why the Watchmen? Unless they're doing The Doomsday Clock.. I don't see the point.
I’ll be honest. I’m not excited about watchmen 2019. It sounds like too much of a knock off, it makes focus is on Trump, Putin, and New Cold War, it’s gonna be very sjw, and the original characters are probably gonna be either changed dramatically from their original form or non existent.
Why make a _Watchmen_ series if you're not adapting the original story in some way? It's not like that there's a vast roster of amazing supporting characters in the Watchmen universe or an extensive background that is not somehow connected to the main story.
I mean, you wouldn't take _V for Vendetta_ and not tell the main story, but tell a story set in the _V for Vendetta_ universe with new characters... or would you?
This has a potential to be great or be a huge flop. I get that they want to make it as original as possible, probably for copyright reasons, but the only way shows like this work is if there's some mention of the original characters in it. I'm not jumping the gun or making assumptions of how this universe is going to work. But, I'd have made it where the new characters drew inspiration on the original ones. I find it hard to think that a series titled Watchmen won't have any of the groups previously mentioned in the film or comics notified in the series or recognized in it. Meaning, they know about Dr. Manhattan, and the events that followed, ect.. I also don't want this to be just another SJW show, or a show that shoves things like feminism or LGBT things down our throats. If it walks the line without it being too preachy than I am in. I am a fan of this series, so I can even get past the new characters, even if the old ones aren't mentioned, but it'd be nice if they got the respect they deserved and were at least mentioned in it. I mean Daredevil didn't really mention the Avengers, but there was enough mentioned to let us know. We'll see, I'm gonna be interested in seeing where this goes. Hopefully, this remains as dark as the movie was, since it's on HBO there's not a real restriction on how it can flow.
I am quite sceptical. The 2009 adaptation was great and quite lot comic book accurate do we really need some other adaptation/take on watchmen? I mean the most appealing thing about watchmen is how realistic characters are and conflict of ideology between ozymandias and rorschach... If we are not getting that where is the point exactly? Why not better adapt something what wasn't adapted before?
Shit trash. They shouldn't have done this. They should have done Astro City instead (Kurt Buisek would of probably played ball). I wish Hollywood and Warner Brothers would stop raping Moore's work. There's tons of creaters who would love to get their work picked up by HBO. I hope it fails hard.
what's up with fans bitching , moaning & complaining so much before tv series/movies come out ?! like damn when did fans start doing this shit ?' when i was growing up I never saw people talk shit or boycott something that HASNT EVEN CAME OUT YET ! i'm convinced y'all just need some ass or something cause y'all be angry for no reason lmao
I didn't realize Tulsa was known for crime as apposed to anywhere else in the country. People just have to rattle shit off to justify other statements. Maybe they portrayed it to "be" in Oklahoma and it serves as a plot device that makes for a different setting than the norm.
The funny thing is that people always say "rorschach is dead, he won't be in the new watchmen"
But keep in mind. The comic basically tells you that rorschach isn't a single person. It's the ideology walter adapted when he realized that the man feed a girl to his dogs.
Walter may be dead. But rorschach lives in everyone that people who do wrong things need to be punished.
Look, I saw a Rorschach mask, so I expect there to be some Rorschach in this god damn show. Or some Son of Rorschach, or Apprentice of Rorschach, or SOMETHING! You can't just SHOW US SOME RORSCHACH, then NOT GIVE US ANY RORSCHACH GOD DAMN IT!
RORSCHACH IS MY HERO AND I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS!
the film was decent, at least they got the characters accurate but after growing up with the original graphic novel I could see why Moore rejected it just like V for Vendetta. I'm surprised he allows them to use his name at all.
Here's the thing.. Watchmen is a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end. It's not something you can spin off into a universe or fold into mainstream continuity. Before Watchmen and Doomsday Clock were, in my OPINION, trash. Highly profitable and marketable trash, just like what I feel like this will be, but trash that shat on Moore's original work. Snyder's film was as close to perfect as we'll ever get adaptation-wise, HBO just wants to cash in on the superhero craze with a well known property and they don't care what type of desecration occurs. If the past 3 seasons of Game of Thrones are any indication of what's to come, fans are screwed.
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci.

The movie was spot on. Like watching the books on screen.
It has been enough years that a totally new take will bring in a new audience.
Looking forward to it but only a bit. Like I never watched the new series of Twin Peaks. Why spoil brilliance.
idk about this david dude but i do know zack snyder creates the best dark and grimy colors for movies that need it... say whatever you want about the dc universe but the colors and look was spectacular. watchman to me was absolutely amazing and its replay-ability is nigh endless for me
