Well, today, the emotional roller coaster ride for Vertigo fans takes another wild jump, as EntertainmentWeekly reports that the good folks at Warner Brothers are now in talks to bring the project into their fold. Hey, this is the company that brought us Batman Begins, right? But of course, it is also the company that brought us Catwoman.
I’m excited about this, for very obvious reasons. Watchmen is a stellar title, and comic book fans of all variety should be thrilled to see it on the big screen. I’m also admittedly apprehensive, however, because of the most recent attempt to bring an Alan Moore project into theatres. Let’s be honest, LXG wasn’t really anything like the comic book, and even if it had a few fleeting moments of mindless action fun, it wasn’t what any of us wanted when we first heard the news of the Gentlemen movie. Can a Watchmen flick be more faithful to the pages, or will it too disappoint?
