With the debate over DC Comic’s controversial plan to release Watchmen prequels continuing to rage across the internet, it is nice to hear from someone at the heart of the matter chime in. Yes, that smug dark haired guy (Matthew Goode) who played that smug blonde guy (Ozymandias) in the 2009 Zack Snyder directed adaption of the original book says he’s alright with the whole idea.
Well Internet, cool it down now and go back to arguing over who was the better Star Trek captain, we’re done here.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Goode said he’s “quite excited” about Before Watchmen. “It’s not Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons doing it, but they’ve got some of the best [writers and artists],” he added “Who knows what will happen with that? Whether it will be made into a prequel or not?”
Wait, did he just express hope for another Watchmen movie? Based on books that are yet to be released and following a movie that was not as financially successful as it was suppose to be? Guess Ozymandias isn’t the smartest man in the world.
“I’m quite excited to see what they come up with,” Goode admitted. “In some senses, my character was the one character where everyone else gets a bigger chunk of back story. I’d quite like to know what was going on. See if I was right about some of the choices I made!” Ok, I have to agree with Goode on that one, the Before Watchmen: Ozymandias prequel is being written by Len Wein and with art by Jae Lee, a promising team on a book that will either be fantastic and tragic.
We’ll see this summer I guess.
