Rival studios reach deal on Watchmen release

Fanboys rejoice! Rival studios say they’ve resolved their battle over the release of “Watchmen.”

The March 6 release of the superhero flick had been in doubt for months as 20th Century Fox and Warner sparred in federal court over who had proper rights to the film.

Spokesmen for both companies have released a statement that the studios have resolved the dispute in a confidential agreement.

Settlement discussions ramped up after a judge decided last month that Warner Brothers had violated Fox’s distribution interests by shooting the film.

Attorneys for both studios are scheduled to meet with U.S. District Judge Gary Allen Feess on Friday and discuss the agreement.

The statement said both studios “look forward with great anticipation” to the film’s release.
