According to Deadline, HBO and Zack Snyder met a few months ago about the possibility of developing a ‘Watchmen’ television series. While HBO has confirmed the meeting, they only released the following information:

“Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred, but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” following a report from Collider.

It appears since then there have been no recent talks about moving forward with the project, with Zack Snyder’s plate full for the next few years working on DC films such as Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and Justice League part 1 and 2.

Watchmen was originally published back in 1986 as a 12-issue miniseries. It was created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons and colorist John Higgins, with a feature film released in 2009 directed by Zack SnyderIt’s unknown how involved Zack Snyder would be if the project moves forward, but it would definitely expand the DC TV brand and join the likes of Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (airs spring 2016) on The CW, Gotham on FOX, Supergirl on CBS, and TNT currently working on a live-action adaption of Teen Titan called Titans.
