Just yesterday brought word that Man of Steel and Watchmen director Zack Snyder has been considering making a movie about George Washington in the style of 300. Inspired by the fact that many of the paintings of the American Revolution hero aren’t far removed from the style of Frank Miller’s graphic novel, Snyder doesn’t think it would be too hard to make that movie.
However, it’s not exactly an original idea. In fact, back in 2009, the folks over at Robot Chicken predicted that the filmmakers behind 300 would tackle the story of the Revolutionary War with a flick called 1776. And yes, it included all the slow motion and stylized action from 300. Watch it below. Read More »
Over on Adult Swim, the stop-motion comedy of Robot Chicken has taken on nearly every facet of pop culture, all with the help of action figures. Now the series from Seth Green and Matt Senreich will return to the world of comic books with their third special focusing on the characters of DC Comics.
