    4 hours and 30 mins? Sorry but thats PBS documentary long. No way is that going to work. A 3 hour Superhero movie is probably in big trouble too. I am struggling to see that comic made into a movie. Its just too much going on in it to do it right but I hope this guy can pull it off. Should be interesting anyways.

    Russ, have you read Watchmen? There's an awful lot of story there, which is why the idea of doing it as an HBO series was kicked around (among fans, at least–I have no idea if it was ever considered by anyone who could actually have made it happen). Snyder has a hell of a job to do there, squashing it all down to a running time the studio (and the theaters) can live with, without turning it into something that's Watchmen in name only. We don't want another League of Extraordinary Gentlemen here.
