Watchmen movie eliminates giant squid!

The director of the upcoming Watchmen movie confirms that he has eliminated the giant squid. If Watchmen is both risking the wrath of the deep and being released in March, I’m increasingly afraid that it will suck. And after I drooled all over the Owl Ship at Comic Con, too!

“The squid was not in the movie when I got the script, the squid was never in any draft that I saw,” continued Snyder. “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 director remained ambiguous on whether he had ever done squid work in pre-production, as was rumored, and he remained tight-lipped on what has replaced Ozymandias’ psychic creature.

    The squid was silly. I don’t care about cobbled together painted foreshadowing, a giant psychic squid bomb was a dumb idea in an otherwise brilliant book. It didn’t fit the theme of the book at all. The only truly abnormal thing in their universe was Dr.Manhattan and then Ozy pulls that out on us?
    I hope that they thought long and carefully about what they replaced that idea with though, because when you make a significant change from the source, you have to hope you do it right.
