Watchmen may be almost seven years old at this point, but it’s never too late for the ‘Honest Trailer’ treatment. The Zack Snyder film adaptation of one of the most iconic and important comics (or graphic novel, if you prefer) of all-time was met with mixed reviews by hardcore fans. Some felt it was a perfect page-by-page recreation, while others felt that no amount of movie magic could recreate the feeling of reading the original.
The film is notable for being directed by Zack Synder, who would go on to direct (and maybe ruin?) the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman movies. Many are worried about his involvement in Suicide Squad (executive producer), Wonder Woman (producer), Justice League (director), The Flash (executive producer), and Aquaman (producer). He’s essentially a huge part of the DC Comics Movie Universe that has so far failed to live up to Marvel’s uber successful version.
So natually, Synder gets ripped a whole bunch in this. Enjoy!
