The most promising release in the recent flood of comics-turned-movies may be on hold, thanks to a lawsuit. The Watchmen, which I haven’t finished yet (I got distracted by Wanted, which is awesome, unlike the movie. Angelina Jolie total blew our chances to watch an awesome (and black) female superhero named Fox) is basically supposed to be the best comic book ever. Serious anti-hero action. The threat comes from a pissing match between Fox and Warner Bros., not the comic’s author, Alan Moore. Lame!
