DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns and author Lev Grossman sat down this afternoon at New York Comic Con to discuss Doomsday Clock, the upcoming limited series crossover that’ll see Alan Moore’s Watchmen clash with the DC Universe.
Traditionally, comics become available at midnight, be it digitally or in the case of big events, through special launch parties. DC’s upcoming Watchmen-infused event Doomsday Clock will arrive slightly earlier than usual... although for a bit of a grim reason.
Tuesday afternoon, writer and producer Damon Lindelof posted the above image on his Instagram. The caption read “Day One.” And if you know comics, the connection is obvious. Lindelof has begun work on the Watchmen TV series.
Alan Moore’s distaste for DC’s ownership of his and Dave Gibbons’ work on Watchmen is widely known at this point—and considering the fact that neither Moore or Gibbons were contacted for the characters’ use in Rebirth, that distaste is still very real today. This new comic cover is unlikely to help smooth things over…
I am tired of meme. These tweets. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lies.
Stefan Kapicic hypes up the return of Colossus in Deadpool 2. Elizabeth Olsen confirms love is in the air for Infinity War. Charlie Cox talks about Matt and Foggy’s relationship in The Defenders. Plus, new Game of Thrones pictures, and Henry Cavill issues a very important statement about his mustache. To me, my…
It’s only been a few weeks since the excellent series finale of Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers left us all reeling and wondering what he’d be working on next. According to a new report, the showrunner is staying with HBO, where he’s developing a new live action Watchmen series.
Doctor Manhattan’s naked blue body aside, there are few images that scream Watchmen louder than the Comedian’s bloody smiley face button. According to Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons, though, the button was a fluke that almost didn’t happen.
At the start of the year, Geoff Johns teased his return to comics writing with a simple teaser image: The glowering brow of Watchmen’s Dr. Manhattan. Now we know just what he’s up to, and it has huge ramifications for the DC comics universe.
After months of intrigue from fans, the first big clues as to just what the hell is going on with Watchmen’s integration into the DC universe are slowly being revealed in a new storyline stretching across the pages of Batman and The Flash. This week’s entry didn’t offer much in the way of major revelations, but it did…
Ever since DC began its Rebirth initiative, one giant mystery has hung over its comics: just how the hell do the Watchmen play into the new DC universe? Today’s Batman is the first issue in the saga that promises to reveal this mystery. It’s light on revelations, but it already has us asking even more questions.
A live-action film adaptation of Watchmen hit screens in 2009. Eight years later, it seems very likely that an animated version of the classic superhero story is on its way.
When DC Rebirth kicked off, Batman found the blood-dripped badge of the Comedian embedded in the wall of the Batcave, leaving him very confused but confirming to us that the world of Watchmen was coming to the DC universe. Since then, nothing much has really happened with it—but starting this April, that will change.
And it’s a pretty reasonable assumption to make that he’ll be the writer behind anything Watchmen-related that happens this year in DC Rebirth.
You might remember that the Watchmen movie was accompanied by a video game tie-in. It was called Watchmen: The End Is Nigh, and it was terrible. But Warner Bros. Interactive was apparently also pitched on a number of other possibilities, including one from the developers who worked on 2002's The Mark of Kri.
In case you don’t remember the man behind the big blue dick, that would be Billy Crudup, who is reportedly in contention to take on the role of Barry Allen’s dad in the Flash movie.
Recently, DC began making a huge move that pushed Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s legendary series Watchmen into the wider DC comics canon. And now they are a part of that canon, DC would very much like you to pay a silly amount of money for new, premium versions of Watchmen again.
Greetings and salutations my... uh... greeters/saluters. Sorry last week’s mailbag got briefly lost in the mail (the irony!) but here’s an extra-large one to make up for it, including whether WB could “Rebirth” the DCMU, who should star in Marvel’s Suicide Squad, and how you can recognize if a woman is in a…
The powers-that-be at DC Comics are terraforming their fictional landscape yet again. Let’s take a look at exactly what’s transforming.
Bruce Timm is finally getting to adapt one of the most iconic (and controversial) Batman stories, The Killing Joke, but this is hardly the first time plans have been made by DC and Warner to turn Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s best-selling comic into a movie. They’ve tried twice before, and two very different…
