Hey, It Was The 80s

As part of his ongoing series on the history of comic book films, William Gatevackes considers the odd journey taken to bring Watchmen to the screen including an unrealised effort in the late 1980s featuring a notable bodybuilder turned actor:

“It would have been a bombastic Joel Silver production that would have starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Manhattan, open with the Statue of Liberty being destroyed, and ended with the surviving heroes transported to our reality when their history was altered.”
