WATCHMEN with extra segment?

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 by Red

Warner Bros had stumped up the spondoolies for Zack Snyder to go ahead and shoot a sweet little extra for WATCHMEN, the segment entitled TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER. Apparently this extra segment might be filmed in animation, and might be released not as a DVD extra with WATCHMEN, but as a stand alone, available the same time that the movie is in cinemas.

Second up, another extra is being filmed, this time an interview with the original Golden Age crime-fighter, Nite Owl (not Patrick Wilson's character; his predecessor), discussing his career and his team, The Minutemen. The interview was based on a book that the Owl had written, and was one of the many pieces of back story that Alan Moore created to craft a rich world for the graphic novel. So apparently, 'Under The Hood' - the title of the memoir - will be filmed, 60s style and will run for an hour. Presumably this will be for the DVD release.
