WATCHMEN!!! - Is it EVER going to get made, or not?

Postby thirtyhelens » Mon Feb 28, 2005 3:55 pm

OK, I guess this needs its own thread now. Good ol' Garth is reporting this one, again (see the bottom of the page):

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news05/050228j.php

According to G, the lad still wants to be the blotty one. ;) The fatalists over on Spaced Out are already moaning. Discuss?

(Personally - it'd surely challenge him more than anything he's ever done, but if he ditches every last vestige of his comedic persona - and I've seen nothing to demonstrate that he can't - he could pull it off. Absolutely)

But the sad thing is we'll never get to see his purdy face until the end :( And....well....I don't like to think about him you know....well if you've read it you know how it ends.

Well, that's the girlie complaint, yes. :)

But...but but....he's the best damn character in the whole bleedin' thing. And a sick....feckin'....bastard. (Which is why most people think he's wrong, which only makes me want to see him do it more and shock the hell out of people.) And you know you love the aaaaagony, babe. Oof....just OOF!

Oh I know... Tears and all...and he'd be talking with "the voice." You just know he would be (teehee)

I've got a question about The Watchmen on my list, so's I'll see if I can't pry anymore out of him about it :) Gently of course.

Nic is it wrong that I want to french kiss your avatar?

Just a random thought.

Please let that rumour be true and materialise. Except without the rectum on a stick that is Jude Law.

And let The Pegg play R with a british accent.

It's actually a graphic novel, Bev, by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons - widely considered the Citizen Kane of the comic universe. Grovel's review is a good intro, and if you want more detail the Annotated Watchmen rocks.

Feeling pretty good about this by this point; he reeeeally seems to get it, which is fantastic.

Since the Pegg rumor was disproven, but this is still of great interest to a lot of us, I've moved this to General Media.

That said: What, what, WHAAAAAAAAT?!?!:

Perhaps all is rolling forward faster than we know. :shock:
