So, I’ve been looking forward to the forthcoming movie adaptation of V for Vendetta (though, in light of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, not wholly without trepidation), but it occurs to me that, in light of recent events, the movie may have a rough go of it. The hero, after all, kicks off the movie with a terrorist bombing campaign that destroys the Houses of Parilament (and several other London landmarks before he’s done). Not, it seems, a terribly propitious time for that sort of gunpowder, treason, or film plot.
