Must See: Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen Video Diary

Dave Gibbons talks Watchmen

Don’t know if you’ve heard but there’s a new Batman movie coming out. Hot on its tail, however, is Zack Snyder’s interpretation of the greatest graphic novel of all time, Watchmen. Fans of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons classic have been clawing their way to get any footage of the film, slated to come out on March 6, 2009. And the boys and girls over at UGO.com are bringing us a new video of Dave Gibbons’ thoughts on the film. Just click the image below to be taken over to the video:

Watchmen Video Journal

I don’t think there is a comic book film that I am more excited/terrified to see. I’m always excited to see another great comic story come to the big screen. But I am terrified that this one is going to get screwed up, seeing as it is the most complex graphic novel ever created. But if Gibbons’ response to the film is any indication, then it looks like Snyder is going to deliver the goods. Be sure to look for a quick glimpse of our favorite masked sociopath, Rorschach. I guarantee you any Watchmen fan will pee themselves a bit when they see him. I scrolled back three times just to watch it.

What are your feelings on Watchmen at this point?
