Patrick Wilson aka Nite Owl Weighs In On ‘Watchmen’ War Of Words

Patrick Wilson aka Nite Owl Weighs In On 'Watchmen' War Of Words

Time is a flat circle, and five years after it hit theaters, new criticisms and defenses surrounding “Watchmen” have emerged over the past few weeks. Producer Joel Silver got the ball rolling by dissing Zack Snyder‘s version, and the director in turn dissed Terry Gilliam, whose unmade version would’ve been far less faith faithful to Alan Moore‘s comic. And Gilliam then weighed in with his own typically cheeky response. So who’s next?

Well, Nite Owl himelf, Patrick Wilson, has shared his thoughts on the the minor battle between filmmakers over the movie, and he’s firmly on Team Snyder. “I love ‘Watchmen,’ I love Zack, I love the process of that. I’m so happy with that movie. Yeah, I saw some recent hubbub… the Joel Silver of it all, and Zack’s response. Zack is very well spoken, he doesn’t need me to back him up. It was awesome,” he told Screen Rant (see below).

So there you go, one more person in Snyder’s corner. Where will this go next?
