‘Watchmen’ Showrunner Damon Lindelof Now Interested In MCU Because Of ‘WandaVision’

Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof has revealed that he is interested in tackling an MCU series based off what he’s seen from WandaVision.

HBO’s Watchmen is widely considered one of the best comic book television shows of all-time. The first season was so well-received that many are asking Damon Lindelof to return for a second one, even though the showrunner admitted that he has no ideas for it. While a Watchmen season two from Damon Lindelof might be unlikely, we could see him tackle another comic book franchise.

Marvel Studios is entering the television game with several shows for Disney Plus including WandaVision, which is expected to be the craziest MCU story yet. In a recent interview with Fandom, Damon Lindelof revealed that he is now interested in making the jump to Marvel Studios after seeing stuff from WandaVision:

“I think that doing something in the Marvel universe, anywhere in the Marvel Universe, would be really potentially exciting for me, especially as they start to get a little bit more experimental. Some of the things that I’ve seen for WandaVision for example, just feel like, ‘OK, now we’re getting somewhere.’ Particularly in a television space.”

Besides Watchmen, Damon Lindelof has also been involved with Star Trek too. It sounds like Damon Lindelof would also be interested in working on Star Wars as well, but he’s in no rush:

“I feel like I would love to do something in the Star Wars universe. Maybe a decade from now when I would no longer be blamed for ruining it. That would be a hoot.”

Here is the official synopsis for Watchmen:

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.

Watchmen stars Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk. The series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, based on Alan Moore’s graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.

Watchmen is now available on HBO Go and HBO Now.
