Zack Snyder Reveals He Was the True Hero of 'Watchmen' | I Watch Stuff: "Then he'll say, "Oh God. I mean, Zack came at it the right way but was way too much a slave to the material. [Terry Gilliam's aborted attempt at Watchmen] was a MUCH much better movie." That's what Silver said in a recent interview with ComingSoon, who asked him about Gilliam's stab at adapting the legendary comic book, and now Snyder has responded to defend himself and a film he says he made "to save from the Terry Gilliams of this world."
"If you read the Gilliam ending, it's completely insane," he told The Huffington Post, referring to Gilliam's hugely not a slave to the material take, which had Dr. Manhattan going back in time to stop his own existence and participation in the central plot."
