[Movies] Zack Snyder Says Watchmen Was the 'Anti-Avengers'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.12.2012



Zack Snyder says that the legacy of his 2009 superhero film Watchmen is ever-growing. Snyder spoke with the LA Times to promote the re-release of the Watchmen Ultimate Cut on Blu-Ray this week and said the film is the "anti-Avengers."

"...in a weird way, Watchmen becomes more and more relevant as more and more superhero movies come out," said Snyder. "After Avengers really would have been the perfect time to release Watchmen because it's the anti-Avengers movie. With Avengers being this phenomenon worldwide, it's interesting what Alan Moore did with that graphic novel and what we tried to do with the movie. Alan Moore not only is a genius in the book he created, but also his knowledge of comic books and mythology of comic books and what the superheroes were in response to and what they represent is really beautiful and insightful. We try to get that across in the movie."

He continued, "When Avengers or whatever other movies get made, it confirms to me the mythological deconstruction that Alan was able to achieve in the book and we tried to achieve in the movie. It's even more fun to watch the movie now, I think, as the general audience has become more and more familiar with these icons and this mythology. The deconstruction of that mythology is inevitable, but it really hasn't been done. I think it's interesting that we have this genre that is so rich, but except for Watchmen and Kick-Ass, which I would call more of a comedy superhero movie, I don't know that they try to dig into the why of it that we do."

The Ultimate Cut hits Blu-Ray (again) tomorrow.
