Zack Snyder on ‘Watchmen’ Legacy as ‘The Anti- “Avengers” Movie’

LA Times Hero Complex:
Director Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” was released in theaters in 2009, but the film has been in a near constant state of revision since then. First there was the director’s cut released on DVD, then there was “Tales of the Black Freighter,” a separate adaptation of the comic-within-a-comic in the original “Watchmen” book. Then there was an “Ultimate Cut,” with the “Black Freighter” segments re-edited into the film, giving it a three-and-a-half hour running time.

Now, there’s a new edition of the film, billed as the most complete “Watchmen” yet released, which combines the full “Ultimate Cut” of the film with Alan Moore’s original graphic novel. The set hits stores Tuesday.

Snyder, deep in post-production on “Man of Steel,” took time out to talk about the film’s continuing appeal to viewers and how it means even more today than when it was released. (Blu-ray, Man of Steel, Watchmen, Zack Snyder)
