But then a funny thing happened. As I predicted, a million billion geeks soiled their Iron Man underoos over the fact that the collective main characters are referred to in the movie as a group called "the Watchmen", when in fact, they were never an actual group, and they were never called the Watchmen. BUT! As far as I have seen, there has been absolutely no mention of the equally meaningless and pedantic fact that in the movie (or at least in the upcoming DVD release), the pirate story is referred to as Tales of the Black Freighter, when in fact the story is called "Marooned".
Either America's geeks are less informed than I thought, or less geeky. I'm not sure which I'm rooting for. In fact, I'm not even sure if I'm happy or sad about this development.
