These guys are getting a movie?
Before the Green Lantern? And before Flash? Even before Wonder Woman?
Yes, that’s the Watchmen. I’ve never read it. I’ll check out the library and see if they have it, since Time Magazine honored it as one of “the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present” (the only comic book to make that prestigious list).
Anyway, back to the point…no other DC legends have been immortalized the way Superman and Batman (and, to a lesser extent, Supergirl) have, but the Watchmen are getting that treatment and will hit the theaters next year. I have to admit, I’m intrigued. Anything comic-related intrigues me. But I’m also surprised that there has been such a hold-up on the members of the Justice League. It seems to me like they would want to make their money now on known entities, while the comic book movie wave is riding high.
