View Full Version : Watchmen Release Could Be Stopped by Fox Lawsuit

The much-anticipated comic book adaptation Watchmen may never make it into theaters if 20th Century Fox succeeds in a lawsuit against Warner Bros. over movie rights.

A judge has refused Warners' motion to dismiss Fox's lawsuit, which was filed in February. Fox claims it owns the rights to the 1986-87 comic book series, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. The series was later republished in a trade paperback format the film's preview calls "the most celebrated graphic novel of all time."

If Fox wins, it could be awarded part of the profits from the film. But Variety reports that Fox doesn't want the money it wants to keep the big-budget film from being released at all.

That would be a massive letdown to fans who've already gasped at the film's dark, atmospheric trailer, a first look at Dr. Manhattan, The Comedian, Rorschach, and Silk Spectre. A full-sized replica of Nite Owl's ship was one of the main attractions at Comic-Con in July.

They should make an X-FORCE movie starring cameos with the X-MEN. That would be so fresh.
