DC"s New Watchmen Movies Can Pull Off 1 Thing The 2009 Zack Snyder Film Couldn"t 

  • The new two-part animated Watchmen adaptation can offer a more faithful retelling from the comic than Zack Snyder's film.
  • The movies can include content from the comics cut from the theatrical version, like the Black Freighter cutaways.
  • DC's filmmakers have the opportunity to rectify missing components from Snyder's movie and deliver a more accurate adaptation.
Watchmen is receiving a new adaptation from DC as a two-part animated movie. Warner Bros. recently shared the first look at the new Watchmen movies, which promise to delve into Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' graphic novel in a way that has not yet been possible. With a rich legacy of un-filmable comic book adaptations behind it, DC animation has the opportunity to pull from the existing Watchmen adaptations while creating something new and true to the spirit of the original graphic novel.
Moore has always distanced himself from adaptations of his work, even beyond Watchmen, including From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. As one of the most celebrated writers in comics history, many of Moore's books are specifically designed to evoke or inform on themes and ideas that are uniquely and specifically expressed in their medium. In the translation to film, much of what Watchmen intended in its story was lost in bombastic, big-budget filmmaking. Understanding this can help to see why a new, animated story adaptation could be beneficial.
