It appears that fears of tampering with the ending of Watchmen may be put to rest. We get the following quote from an interview Patrick Wilson had with our friends at MTV:
Despite any rumors circulating, they’re not changing the ending of “Watchmen” so much that fans won’t recognize it, by giving it say, a happy ending where Rorschach saves the day. “Ha!” Wilson laughed. “I have to say, if you know how much Zack believes in it, you wouldn’t believe he would go that far from the graphic novel. I don’t know how those rumors start, but that’d be a stretch!”
Reassurance is always good. I am currently trying to finish The Watchmen, and have been chipping away at it slowly. The graphic novel seems to have a following of devoted fans that are excited and concerned about a film adaptation. Letting everyone know that the ending will be the same, also assures them that everything leading up to that point should also follow suit.
News like this is always welcome, and we will be certain to keep the Watchmen updates rolling as they are made available to us!
