‘Watchmen’ Showrunner Damon Lindelof Reveals ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ Movie Idea

Watchmen Damon Lindelof The Dark Knight Returns

Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof discusses his idea for adapting The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller into a movie.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice adapted elements of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof discusses how he’d do a movie of the iconic Batman story. Fans and critics have been raving about HBO’s Watchmen since its debut and that’s largely down to the writing from showrunner Damon Lindelof. Most recently, fans were astonished by the show’s use of Doctor Manhattan and his place in the story.

In an interview with Collider, Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof was asked how he’d adapt The Dark Knight Returns. Although he started by saying he would be too worried about messing it up to do a completely faithful adaptation, Damon Lindelof said it would be great to see a previous Batman actor return to the role to play an ageing Bruce Wayne in The Dark Returns. Take a look at Collider’s interview with Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof below.

“I think it would be really interesting to wait for somebody like, you know, Michael Keaton, who has already done Batman, or a Christian Bale 25 years from now and then do Dark Knight with them. So, it’s someone who we actually saw play a younger version of Batman. That would be rad.”
