It looks like the rumours are true: Damon Lindelof will be working on HBO’s adaptation of DC’s Watchmen series.
Watchmen follows the story of an alternate reality where masked superheroes are part of America’s society. The story was originally written by Alan Moore and was released as a limited comic book series in the mid-80s.
In 2009, Zack Snyder directed a film adaptation of Moore’s series, and in 2015 it was rumoured that Snyder was to help HBO create the television show. It wasn’t until earlier this year that Lindelof’s name was thrown into the mix, most well-known as the co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers.
Yesterday, it seems that Lindelof took to IG to confirm the rumours. He posted a photo of the base of Nite Owl’s retirement trophy, which is the same trophy that appeared on the cover of Watchmen #8, published in 1987.
Now for the million dollar question: Nite Owl or Batman?
