It looks like it’s going to be one hell of a dog fight between 20th Century Fox and Warner Brothers, regarding the DC comic adaptation Watchmen. As we reported last week, Fox was granted interest in the Watchmen film by a U.S. District Court judge. The studio originally owned the film rights to the graphic novel, but when they sidelined the project its producer decided to shop it around….enter Warner Brothers.
According to LatinoReview, Fox is already starting to flex their copyright muscle.
An attorney for 20th Century Fox says the studio will press its case to delay the release of “Watchmen,” but a rival studio says it plans to release the film as scheduled.
This is getting messier, and messier by the minute. I hope the power struggle for for this film doesn’t ruin it for the fans. People have been waiting a long time for a Watchmen movie, do you think Fox should make us wait even longer? I get that they want their money, but come on.
