Zack Snyder Responds to Joel Silver’s Watchmen Criticism

Last week, we got an interesting quote from famous producer Joel Silver about director Terry Gilliam's defunct film adaptation of Alan Moore's Watchmen in addition to some criticisms for director Zack Snyder's film, which he called "too much of a slave to the material." Now, in a new interview with The Huffington Post, Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder responded to the criticism.

"If you read the Gilliam ending, it's completely insane," Zack said, referring to the ending where Doctor Manhattan prevents his own creation which causes a lot of changes to the story.

"The fans would have been thinking that they were smoking crack," Deborah Snyder added. 

"The fans would have stormed the castle on that one," Zack said. "So, honestly, I made Watchmen for myself. It's probably my favorite movie that I've made. And I love the graphic novel and I really love everything about the movie. I love the style. I just love the movie and it was a labor of love. And I made it because I knew that the studio would have made the movie anyway and they would have made it crazy. So, finally I made it to save it from the Terry Gilliams of this world."

What do you think of the differences in Snyder's version from 2009 and Terry Gilliam's proposed version? Do you agree with Snyder's intentions for the making the movie?
