With hopes of a better outcome than Zack Snyder's 2009 Watchmen movie, HBO previously announced that they are rebooting the Watchmen comic book series into TV format. Which is great news, gives the series more time to better develop these beloved characters that we've read in the comics but that might not be the case.
In a recent interview on IGN with HBO president Casey Bloys stated that this series is not going to be a direct adaptation and may stray away from the original series.
“I don’t want to talk too much about it, but Damon is thinking about it in a way exactly as you describe it,” Bloys said. “Which is, how do you take the material and derive it from a TV show, without making it a literal translation?”
With that being said it seems like they will take inspiration from the Alan Moore's Watchmen series but may bring some of its own original content to this highly acclaimed series. For more Nerd News, updates and podcast then follow us on Facebook at Nerdz With Wordz and on Twitter @NWWPOD.
