Watchmen: Lindelof has harsh words for the attitude of Alan Moore
Alan Moore, as you know, is not happy with the adaptation of HBO's Superheroes, and the showrunner Damon Lindelof has accepted. The series is scheduled for October, although it was not yet announced an exact date.
Last summer, many assumed that it was an adaptation directed, but Lindelof had explained that it was not so. Not only the show would not have adapted the series, in twelve numbers, created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons 1986, but would not even have taken a cue from the comic book prequel, Before Watchmen or from the sequel to the Doomsday Clock. Apart from this, the showrunner has been rather enigmatic, saying that will come into play the elements of the original plot, but that will be “remixed”. Therefore, the series should be set in the same universe, but will also have original characters. The details are so scarce, but the trailer recently released has done a little bit of light on this alternative reality.
The Wrap reports that in a conference at the TCA, Casey Bloys of HBO was asked if Alan Moore had changed his feelings are notoriously negative about adaptations of his work. Bloys, he replied: “I Think that his thinking remains the same. That is not particularly thrilled”.
The head of programming has also confirmed that Moore will not have roles in the show. According to TV Line, Lindelof understands that Moore may not appreciate his project, referring to the writer as “a genius”, and saying that he appreciates the “spirit of punk rock and rebel” of Moore. Lindelof then went on to say that if someone had said to a young Alan Moore what he could or could not do, “he would have said, ‘Vaffanc... I'm doing It anyway... so I'm channeling the spirit of Alan Moore to tell Alan Moore “Vaffanc... am I doing it anyway”.
The location of Moore on this topic is not surprising, given that the writer had asked for his name to be removed from the film Watchmen 2009 Zack Snyder and that his share of profits to be given to the artist Dave Gibbons. In the course of the years, has also had negative things to say about the various adaptations of his work, including From Hell, V for Vendetta and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (with a few of the reasons, to tell the truth...).
In any case, the showrunner shows respect Moore and his work, so we just have to wait until October for us, in our opinion.
