In 2015, talk of a Watchmen miniseries involving director Zack Snyder began. The news was quiet about the second adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ graphic novel, but in June it was reported Damon Lindelof was in talks to develop Watchmen as its showrunner.

Dave Gibbons Discusses the Watchmen Miniseries

When it comes to HBO’s potential adaptation of Watchmen, artist Dave Gibbons “[knows] as much as the next person.” Gibbons was involved with director Zack Snyder‘s 2009 adaptation, making appearances and promoting the movie and he remains pleased with it.
