Question: Can you explain why White Supremacy is the plot arc of Warchmen?

Lindelof: To me, Watchmen is a story about America. And it’s about self-proclaimed “heroes” fighting an intangible enemy that is almost impossible to defeat. In the eighties, that enemy was the pervasive threat of nuclear Armageddon between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. In 2019, that enemy is the long overdue reckoning with our country’s camouflaged history of White Supremacy. That said, this is not the ONLY plot arc because there are also alien squids.

Debuts with 81/100 on metacritic.


Question: So is there gonna be blue dong in an episode or what?

Lindelof: If there’s not a blue dong by episode 2, I’m clearly not qualified to do this job.
:lol:

Love the fact that the two Watchmen, whom Snyder got dead wrong, are in this in what seems to be important roles.

Who is playing her? Didn't realize she had a major role. That rules.

2 days left and we still don't know who plays as Manhattan, don't understand why it had to be kept as a secret.

stunt casting perhaps? who knows. would be hilarious if it was justin theroux. terry o'quinn for an "older" Dr. Manhattan (if such a thing could exist) would work too.

just to be absolutely clear, i am losing my shit in anticipation for this
