Watchmen Television Series in the Works


Watchmen is by far one of the most unusual comic book films to be released in the recent years, mainly due to its nature, subject matter and portrayal of its heroes.

Zack Snyder who directed the feature film version and is now one of the heads of the DC Extended Universe, first cut his teeth on the Alan Moore novel and it looks like he maybe revisiting it in a television format and the network he is speaking with is HBO.

The same network who not too long ago made a deal with Warner Bros. to produce original content, as well as offer Warner Bros. and DC products on their HBO GO streaming service, is in talks to make the series happen.

The news come from Collider, who broke the news earlier, with this being a possibility and the prequel novels that came out after the success of the film they have plenty of material to expand upon. It be nice to see Alan Moore embrace at least one of his adaptations by taking a writing or producing role on the series.

Keep in mind though nothing is confirmed, so take with a grain of salt, but Collider has been good on keeping the rumor mill free of bad scoops.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    I’m thinking this will be a Before Watchmen scenario. I would be totally fine with that.
    Also, HBO would be the perfect place for DC/Vertigo’s more, say, adult shows. I forsee good times ahead!
