The story within a story plot line gets a little deeper with the greenlighting of a rather unique tie-in to the Watchmen Move. Director Zack Snyder pleased the Warner Bros brass with what they’ve seen of the movie so much that they’ve given a budget for the director to shoot the special ‘Tales of the Black Freighter’ for the disc.
"Tales of the Black Freighter’’ is a comic book within the Watchmen universe, that one of the characters read while the events of the graphic novel unfold. The comic is read by a teenage boy while he sits beside a newsstand, whose proprietor, contemplates the latest headlines and discusses them with his customers.
The "Black Freighter" storyline is in interesting concept piece that could be a great asset to the Watchmen universe.
