    it's all about money, fox wanted money and they're going to get it.

    movie is still going to come out on schedule (unless those godless sons of bitches at fox do something retarded).

    Goddamn fucking greedy whores at Fox. But in all fairness, WB didn't have any (at the time) concrete evidence that Fox still had copyright as that had been (presumably) passed through so many studios it was legally muddy.
    So i applaud them for even going through with it, as this'll probably turn out to be a good choice for them in having Snyder working on this movie.
    But goddamn fucking Fox fucking shit up as normal.

    Yes, they are fucking shit up. It is not like Fox didn't know they had the copyrights the whole time before and during the shooting. Why the hell not claim at the start or even halfway through the filming? But no, they decide to be the douchebags they are and press WB just at the time when they need to put the film out so they can "blackmail" them into whatever costs they want.

    That's just fucking retarded. Makes sense businesswise, but that doesn't mean it's retarded.

    Fox held the rights to that movie for 20 God damn years.
    I thought rights to such things dissapeared after 10 years...
    Just like the NES, it's been out of production for over 10 years so now 3rd party NES knockoff systems are being seen that play the original NES cartridges...

    Do we see Nintendo throwing a fucking tissy fit?
    No, because they had no intention of making the Nintendo in the future.
    Just like Fox never had the intention of making Watchmen. Period.

    In for an epic underground movie.
    Imagine if they didnt get the rights to release it.

    You KNOW someone there would leak that shit.

    This was brought up months ago. I heard about this happening during the summer. I don't believe that we will be seeing this movie any time soon

    I'm sure warner brothers themselves would leak it just to piss off fox, and then they would deny the whole thing saying that it was an employee that did it.

    Oh, so you're saying that big studios like Paramount, Legendary and even Universal who've all have tried to make a Watchmen movie knew about it, but WB didn't? Doesn't even sound remotely possible, not to mention that all the other studios have made attempts at it and they didn't happen simply because Fox made any attempts to stop it, but for a variety of reasons.

    If Fox was so concerned about any copyrights, you would've thought they had said something during the 10+ years this movie has been in the "pre-production" stage. :rolleyes:

    No shit if Fox gets the June court date they are pushing for. If it happens, this movie is buggered all up the bloody arse.

    Not really, regardless of what they've done with it, they have all the legal right. WB knows they don't have the rights, it's on them for being idiots. That said, Fox is a bunch of faggots if they keep this from getting released on time, regardless of legal right.

    Again, where is the proof that they've contacted them? Or hell, even any suggestions that they have would be fine. If they did contact them, i'm quite sure it sure as fuck wasn't before the movie started shooting. Even if WB was full of complete fucktards, which i'm sure it is, they aren't so stupid as to start shooting a movie which is being contested.

    It seems more obvious that they probably did it halfway or at least just at the finish of the shootings where WB might have tried to ignore it because they didn't want to fuck everything up due to the massive shit they put into making it.

    I'm not denying Fox does not have any legal right, but that they are being fucktards for holding up a finished movie just to get some more money :rolleyes:

    There's got to be a chance that the whole deal is a fake out as part of the hype hasnt there?

    If the dispute pre-date WB starting production etc.

    Sounds fishy to me

    Either way I doubt it'll be the whole story, ..., it'd've been better as a TV series but I suppose Heroes has that locked up already
