The Watchmen saga continues. The latest chapter in this horrible spin-off novel? A lawyer speaking for Warner Brothers has said that: “a trial is necessary and a settlement unlikely.”
Last week Judge Gary Feess ruled that Warner Bros had infringed on 20th Century Fox’s rights to develop and distribute a movie adaptation of Alan Moore’s Watchmen graphic novel.
Even then, there was still hope that the two studios might be able to get together and sort it out in time for the film's scheduled 6 March release.
But this latest revelation suggests that the Watchmen movie
be delayed, unless Dr Manhattan descends from Mars to fiddle with time, space and, most importantly, logic.
The delay isn’t indefinite yet, but it’s sure starting to look that way.
