For the sake of equal time, I will post an email from the Wired artcle author in my response to his article's reporting errors. Feel free to support him if you think I was way off base.
Adam, Do you do any research before you write an article? There are so many errors in this article I don't know where to begin. First, Zack Snyder directed 300, not Zak Penn. Second, the Watchmen movie is cast and has been shooting in Vancouver since early this month. Plus, the ending of the Watchmen story does not culminate in the destruction of NYC, just the deaths of three million inhabitants of NYC. Two minutes of Googling would have given you this basic information. Way to go.
Glenn, thanks for your thoughtful comment. I’ve corrected the name of the director, which was a bonehead mistake, though I’ll quibble with your assessment of 3 million people killed in New York as not representing the destruction of New York, as I wrote it. And they certainly had trouble casting—didn’t get A-listers—and as of three weeks ago, according to publicist, they hadn’t started shooting yet. We’ll check that again here, and if I erred I’ll change it...though the fact remains that they’re quite late, still.
