The rumors have all pointed to this reveal with equal parts skepticism and intrigue from fans and non-fans of Alan Moore’s famous comic books.
Good news off the bat is that HBO is handing the reins of this monumemtal project to their showrunner Damon Lindelof who ran The Leftovers tv series for HBO with stunning success. The reaction to the choice of showrunner has been optimistic with fans of his pointing to how well he handled adapting “The Leftovers” the novel to thesmall screen.
With that said people at first doubted the Watchmen movie could be made let alone be successful and it worked with much credit to Zack Snyder’s ability. Lindelof is conscience of the source material.
In fact Lindelof has even said that he is more itimately in tune with it since he is such a fan. Claiming that it affected how he writes for tv ever since reading Watchmen himself.
