Wil Wheaton Screened Watchmen Reports Back That It’s ‘Fucking Awesome’, Nerds Everywhere Sigh in Relief

wil.jpgWil Wheaton tells all (most) on his blog about screening the film Watchmen (out 3/6/09). The question on everyone’s mind is if the movie – in spite of everything – will still stink. Wil alleviates our concerns:

I know a lot of people want to know about Watchmen, so I’ll just cut to the chase right away: It’s the best movie inspired by a graphic novel that I’ve ever seen. It could have gone wrong in a thousand different places, and it didn’t. I’ve wanted to see this movie for twenty years, and it was entirely worth the wait. Hear me now, my fellow geeks: you have nothing to worry about. Watchmen is fucking awesome.

For our ComicCon coverage on Watchmen from last year, check this out. And here.
