If it's truer to the comics than the live action movie, there'll be less Smurf dick and more Dr. Manhattan in gradually shrinking Speedos.

I assume they'll use the comic's ending instead of the movie version. I'm kind of Watchmened out. Greatest comic ever but we've gotten the story now in virtually every medium, including a motion comic from about 15 years ago.

We are only one desperate executive decision away from Watchmen Babies.

I mean I never thought we'd get a sequel, much less the integration of them into the DC comic universe... can they get more desperate? I guess with your suggestion there's still a floor to fall through.

Nice. Hopefully Batman Ninja gets re-released on 4K UHD BD.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I don’t know what the comic books (Crisis on Infinite Earths) are like, I know this is a heralded storyline, but these movies have sucked. Just saw part 3 and while there’s a lot going on, it all seems really dull and boring. I don’t know what else to say. Having a team up like this for a 5 star comic book series should have been awesome, but wasn’t. It wasn’t at all. There was no excitement, no verve or life. Seems all too similar. This should have been a defining moment in DC’s pantheon of animated films, but these 3 should never be included. Hell, I liked Batman vs. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles better than this. This was truly a bad trilogy and what should have been the MCU’s Infinity War/Endgame, but there is absolutely no comparison. I felt nothing for these characters in CoIE. It was all vapid to me and I like many of these animated films, but this was tedious to get through.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I think the creative talent which carried many of the animated DC films have gotten older or retired. Splitting Crisis up into three parts was a sheer money grab which didn't work out.

For both Watchmen and Crisis, I would have liked seeing all 12 issues adapted into a series of 30-minute episodes. That's the only way those properties can properly be adapted.

Big Batman 4K set coming. But I wish it was complete. The last Blu-ray set had 18 films in it.
