    Dear Fox,

    Having been greatly impressed with your treatment of several media properties, such as Firefly and The Tick, let me be the first to say

    FUCK OFF

    with all respect and camaraderie due to your abilities and intentions.

    Yours,
    Internet Personality Vangelus

    It’s going to be hard enough to do Watchmen right but if anyone can do it I have faith Zack Snyder is the guy. I don’t have any faith in Fox to do a good job.

    I've never had a problem with Fox before, but this is definetly not helping my opinion of them. My opinion of this whole thing would be completely different if they were capable of making an equally cool movie as WB is making, or even better than it. They've made some pretty good movies in the past, but I just can't see them making a Watchmen movie as good as WB. Then again, the lawsuit really has nothing to do with how good WB movie looks. I really hope WB wins this one. Mainly because if Fox really cared about the property at all, they would have done this a long time ago when the project first started. Right now it just seems like a completely bs lawsuit like one's against fast food resturants for "making people fat", or for not warning the consumer that their coffee was hot.

    The movie isn't going to get shelved this near completion. Fox is just looking to pick up some of its profits.

    Don't forget Keen Eddie. It was the freshest thing on TV and they replaced it with The OC after like 6 episodes.

    Guess they need some money to make some more awful reality shows like Who wants to Date Bigfoot or I Married a Lesbian Nazi Hooker.

    Well if they really want some of the profits they might as well also negotiate with WB so that the complete Adam West Batman TV show could be released.

    I still think they're just trying to up there settlement, its very much a dick move but they know they've got WB in a hotspot, I still can't see a movie costing this much with this much anticipation not getting released, hell it'd get bootlegged at least.

    I will forever love Bravo for airing the entire season of Keen Eddie.

    Arrested Development was gold, but I wish they didn't bring Family Guy back. And I do admit, that some shows deserved to get cancelled.

    But I don't know what to make of this. I do want to see Watchman, but I'm not expecting much out of it out of fear... Even if Watchman doesn't get release, I won't feel too sad.

    Fox is just butthurt that they won't be able to top Watchmen. Seriously, they are trying to STEAL A WHOLE MOVIE so that they won't have competition at next year's box office for whatever shithole film they've cranked out of their asses.
    Dear Fox:
    FUCK YOU
