He changed the ending. Fail.
WatchmenComicMovie.com | The “Squid” is Out | Zack Snyder confirms that the creature at the end of the original comic series will not be in his movie adaptation
I know — that sucks. We’ve all been hearing conflicting reports over the past several months on whether the “squid” — what fans call the monster at the end of Watchmen — would make it into the film, but now it seems that it definitely will not be making an appearance.
How do we know? Well, Watchmen movie director Zack Snyder said so in a recent interview with Dark Horizons
The squid was not in the movie when I got the script, the squid was never in any draft that I saw. My point is only that there was this elegant solution to the squid problem that I kind of embraced. I'm a fan of the thing as much as anyone, I was saying what are we going to do about this before I even read the script.
The details on what he has specifically changed in the film in regards to the ending are not known at this time, but it seems like he’s going with the “Dr. Manhattan energy beam” disaster that appeared in both the David Hayter and Alex Tse drafts of the script. When asked about details of the film’s climactic disaster, Snyder explained…
I won't say exactly but... Dr. Manhattan has a certain energy signature, it's clearly his thing...so you know.
Further commentary paints Snyder as, well, a condescending snot.
Should you go see it?
