It's been ten years since Zack Snyder's Watchmen made its global opening back on March 6, 2009, and since then the film's head its group of fans and critics.

Though the film adaptation of Alan Moore's limited series comic book became a divisive entry, the film has become a seminal comic book movie, one which Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan describes as a film "ahead of its time."

Speaking with Variety during the premiere of Rampage, Morgan says that he's very proud of the film, imagining that Watchmen will "have fans forever."


"I'm very proud of that movie. People are still finding it and watching it and I think it'll have fans forever. I think it was ahead of its time," Morgan told the publication. "I don't know what else to say, other than I'm extremely proud of it. Not long ago, I caught the second half of the film, just flipping channels, and loved it. It was great."

Taking his signature visual style to Watchmen, Snyder created a faithful adaptation of Moore's graphic novel. However, while the film followed its source material, many who were unfamiliar with Moore's comics didn't quite understand Watchmen.

Hopefully, the time finally is right for Watchmen and the upcoming television series that Damon Lindelof is developing for HBO.

The Watchmen television series doesn't have a release date just yet, but we'll let everyone know as soon as we get word.
