Since the comic book came out, there have been threats to make a Watchmen movie. RevolutionSF documented the development of the movie from "No way," to "way" and all points in between.
From the Archives
We went back, way back, back into time, all the way back to 1999
to hear from Terry Gilliam.
No Watchmen Movie, Again

made us think there would be a Watchmen
movie. How dare it?
Watchmen Movie Cast Announced
On July 26, 2007, the movie cast
was named. Or, as we wrote, "Malin Ackerman survived appearing on Earth Final Conflict."

Under the Hood
The revelation that the comic's pirate story and superhero documentary

Countdown to Stupid-Assery
We gathered up all the stupid-ass developments
in the Fox lawsuit. Fun!
They reached a settlement. So we gave them some slow, sarcastic applause.
We have concrete proof
that the movie exists! One of us saw it! If we choose to believe him.
