Alan Moore Isn't Thrilled About HBO's New Watchmen Series and Damon Lindelof Responds with a Respectful "F**k You"

Comic book writer Alan Moore has never been happy with any of his work being adapted by Hollywood. He doesn’t like it that people mess around with his work! He wasn’t a fan of the Watchmen prequel comic series that DC published, he certainly wasn’t happy with Zack Snyder’s movie, and of course, he’s not happy about the upcoming HBO sequel series.

During the Television Critics Association, HBO's head of programming, Casey Bloys, was asked if Moore was still angry about the series and he responded, "I think that remains the case. That he’s not thrilled."

When the creator of the series and showrunner Damon Lindelof talked about Alan Moore, saying he has "made it very clear that he doesn’t want to have any association or affiliation with Watchmen." But, Lindelof still respects the writer and even called him "a genius”.

Damon Lindelof responds to Alan Moore’s displeasure over HBO’s Watchmen with a respectful “f*ck you”

Damon Lindelof doesn’t mind that Watchmen co-creator Alan Moore isn’t a fan of the HBO adaptation.

Watchmen is one of the most beloved comic-book runs in history and co-creator Alan Moore isn’t a big fan of people adapting his work for the screen. The Wrap reports that at a TCA Q&a, HBO’s Casey Bloys was asked if Moore had changed his mind: “I think that remains the case. That he’s not thrilled.”

TV Line has spoken to the showrunner Damon Lindelof and asked if him how he feels about it. Lindelof referred to Moore as a “genius” and appreciates his “rebellious spirit”. He also went on to say if Moore was told not to do something back in the day “he would say, ‘Fuck you. I’m doing it anyway… so I’m channeling the spirit of Alan Moore to tell Alan Moore, ‘Fuck you.

‘Watchmen’ Confronts White Supremacy Without “Grandiose Solutions,” Says Damon Lindelof – TCA

‘Watchmen’ Confronts White Supremacy Without “Grandiose Solutions,” Says Damon Lindelof – TCA
After dropping an Easter egg-rich new Watchmen trailer during the spotlight of Comic-Con, Damon Lindelof today tore right into the heart of the upcoming HBO series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic late-1980s comic.

“What in 2019 is the equivalent of the nuclear standoff between the Americans and the Russians?” the sometimes-punchy Leftovers co-creator postulated during the Watchmen panel at TCA on Wednesday. “It is race and the police,” Lindelof said, answering his own question as star Regina King and Ep/director Nicole Kassell — both Leftovers alums — sat next to him on stage at the Beverly Hilton.

“There is no defeating white supremacy — it’s not going away,” Ep Lindelof explained of the hate groups that populate the nine-episode Watchmen. “There are no easy answers and grandiose solution,” he added, noting this was not going to play out like your standard superheroes saga on the small or big screen.

‘Homecoming’: Janelle Monáe Will Star in Season 2 of Amazon Show

After one of the biggest casting coups in Amazon Prime Video’s history, “Homecoming” seems to have found its follow-up with Janelle Monáe.

Deadline is reporting that Monáe is set to lead the Amazon show’s Season 2, following the departure of Julia Roberts. Monáe’s character will represent the addition of a new storyline to the story, which will still tie into the first season’s theme of lost memories.

Roberts played Heidi Bergman, an employee at a facility ostensibly designed to help rehabilitate military veterans. As the season progressed and the show moved in parallel storylines, Heidi began to uncover the truth behind the work she’d done there. Monáe’s storyline will reportedly find her playing a woman searching for answers behind who she is and why she was left to drift in a canoe all by herself.

Even with the change from Roberts to Monáe, there’s

‘Homecoming’: Janelle Monáe To Star In Season 2 Of Amazon Drama Series, Plot Elements Revealed
Hidden Figures and Moonlight star Janelle Monáe is set to headline the second season of Amazon’s psychological thriller drama series Homecoming, from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail.

The description of her character provides some clues about the premise of Season 2. The actress/musician plays a tenacious woman who finds herself floating in a canoe, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is.

As a leading lady, Monáe succeeds Julie Roberts who toplined Season 1 in a one-year deal. Roberts is continuing as an executive producer on the series, a co-production between Amazon Studios and Ucp.

Homecoming, which is in the middle of a two-season initial order from Amazon, is heading into a second season that will deviate from the popular Gimlet Media’s podcast which Season 1 was based on and will introduce new characters.

Emmy Fyc: Hong Chau in "Forever"

By Spencer Coile

Despite its impressive cast and creative team, the premiere of Amazon Prime’s Forever was oddly muted. Yet for anyone who watched the eight episode first season, this shouldn’t be a complete surprise - the premise is almost too clever and takes a solid three episodes before you actually know what is happening. Still, with its pedigree, it’s strange that not even Maya Rudolph’s strong leading role garnered any Emmy buzz, nor did it receive any Globe or Critics Choice love.

Still at least one performance absolutely deserves the Emmy voters attention: For Your Consideration: Hong Chau for Comedy Guest Performance in episode 6 “Andre and Sarah.” Months after the series premiere (I first watched it back in September), I haven’t been able to shake Chau’s performance as Sarah…

Watchmen teasers offer first glimpse at Tim Blake Nelson’s new character Looking Glass

After unveiling a first trailer for Watchmen last month, HBO has now released a trio of teaser promos for the upcoming small screen spinoff to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal comic book epic, which give us our very first glimpse of the new masked character Looking Glass, portrayed by Tim Blake Nelson.

Nelson previously discussed his role as Looking Glass, revealing that it was originally planned as a minor part, although creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof decided to expand this once the actor became attached. That being said, all we know about the character at present is that he’s got a rather shiny, reflective mask. Take a look for yourself in the teaser promos here…
