Watchmen star Patrick Wilson wants to reassure fans worried about Zack Snyder's adaptation of the famous graphic novel that everything's okay; they can still expect a Cold War-era downbeat ending when the movie gets released next year. And now we can see just how faithful Snyder is being to the original ourselves, as the trailer is online for everyone to view (wait a few seconds and the trailer will play).
According to Wilson, who plays the Blue Beetle/Batman analog Nite Owl, Snyder wouldn't even consider changing the climax of the book for the big screen to something happier:
Zack tried to put everything he could in and he left it to the studio to cut it and tell him what he can't fit in. For the script we started with, every scene has something different than what's on the page... 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!
Meanwhile, ahead of tonight's debut of the movie's trailer in theaters, Empire Online has the world exclusive online premiere for you to view. I'm not entirely convinced - it looks too clean to me, especially the Comedian in a very shiny Vietnam - but make up your own mind while enjoying the Billy Corgan sneering soundtrack.
