Film - Comic-Book Watchmen Skulk to the Screem -

Film - Comic-Book Watchmen Skulk to the Screem - "WHEN Zack Snyder became the director of the film adaptation of “Watchmen,” the graphic novel about troubled superheroes in a declining age, he knew that he was taking on not only a seminal piece of popular culture but more than 20 years of unfulfilled expectations and competing agendas.

From his encounters with the original comics, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons, he was well versed in the creators’ weighty, grown-up ideas about the futility of heroism and knew that they had no enthusiasm for seeing “Watchmen” turned into a movie. He was also aware that many directors before him had been unsuccessful at the same endeavor, and he expected that he would have to fight his studio to make the film he wanted."
