Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder brought Watchmen to life in 2009, and now he’s working on developing it into a series on the small screen. According to a new report from Collider, Snyder has had several meetings with HBO about a Watchmen TV series.
Unfortunately, that’s all we know at this point. There are no story details such as if it would be a prequel or sequel, and HBO hasn’t greenlit the project yet either.
Collider notes that HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones will be ending in the next couple of years, so they’ll likely be looking for another big show to replace it. A Zack Snyder developed Watchmen series could be just what they need. HBO, Warner Bros., and DC Comics are all owned by Time Warner, so it seems like a good fit.
Is a Watchmen TV series from Zack Snyder something you’d be interested in? Let me know in the comments below!
Update: HBO confirmed that talks are taking place. They gave a statement to Variety:
“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” HBO said in a statement Thursday.
