Since the news about 20th Century Fox trying to prevent Warner Bros. from distributing the much anticipated "Watchmen" hit, fans quickly respond with an outrage and plan to boycott Fox's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". However, a recent report from Entertainment Weekly suggested that the previous reports may not be accurate noting that Fox are not looking to stop the Zack Snyder's movie from being released.

A source close to Fox revealed that the studio's intention with the lawsuit is only to gain affirmation of ownership which may result in cash settlement or distribution rights of the movie. "Of course we are concerned about the fans; however, any disappointment from the core fans should not be directed toward Fox," the source told EW. "What we are doing is seeking to enforce our distribution rights to 'Watchmen.' Legal copyright ownership should not just be swept under the rug and ignored."
