Jeffrey Dean Morgan in WatchmenOne of the main worries that fans of the “Watchmen” graphic novel have is how true to the story director Zack Snyder will stay. According to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays The Comedian, things are going to get very dark, much to the delight of fans.

Rope of Silicon got a chance to speak with Dean Morgan about whether some of the most controversial scenes were going to make the cut, including a truly defining and dreadful moment in Vietnam involving The Comedian, a pregnant woman, and Billy Crudup’s Dr. Manhattan.

“Yeah, yeah. It’s there. It’s tough, that’s a tough thing. I think that scene and the [other scene] were two things that I’ll forever remember as an actor,” Morgan explained.

I’m reading “Watchmen” again right now and The Comedian’s storyline is a powerful effort at addressing the question of morality the Watchmen have. The scenes have to be in the film.

Do you like the fact that even the darkest story elements are making it into the film? As well, do you think it can still be successful even if it is so dark?
