Who's watching the Watchmen

Now that the Dark Knight excitement is slowing wearing off, it's time to get the ball rolling on the much hyped Watchmen graphic novel and film. This has been said (going by reviews off the cover) as the mecca of all comics. Written in 1989 by Alan Moore, fans believe it is the super hero story to end all! 

It's been in development hell for years, going through multiple casts and directors. The job finally  went to Zac Synder (Dir. of 300) who is an actual fan and by the look of his other work is the right guy to bring this epic to life.

Watch the looks cool.

You might enjoy this Mr. Media podcast interview with Dave Gibbons, co-creator and artist of Watchmen, as he discusses the Warner Bros./Fox dispute, being on the set during production, and what he thinks of the trailer and the rough cut he saw of Watchmen. He also talks about the possibility of working with Frank Miller and the message he took to Alan Moore from Will Eisner. Here's the link!
