DC has finally announced the project that will pit the heroes of the DC universe up against the Characters from Watchmen, the story will be dropped in November just in time for the Justice League movie to air.
heres what Geoff Johns has to say about the title "We’re not going to do a story like this unless we one-thousand percent believe in it. It is all about the story; it is only about the story," Johns told SyFy Wire. "There are no crossovers. No watered down one-shots or mini-series on top of this one. This is a standalone story. There is only Doomsday Clock. We had no interest in doing a crossover with this. We didn’t want to see Doctor Manhattan facing off against Superman in Action Comics, with all due respect. That is not what this is about. It is about something different … It will have an impact on the entire DC Universe. It will affect everything moving forward and everything that has come before. It will touch the thematic and literal essence of DC."
He also went on stating that the story will largely be about the clash of ideals between Superman and Doctor Manhattan. "I believe in the power of these icons. I believe in the power of hope, and optimism," Johns told Aaron Sagers in the piece. "I don’t think it’s fake. People tend to say if it’s grim, and gritty, it’s real, and grounded. I refuse that … And I don’t care if it stirs up drama. But I want it to be drama in the right way. I think Gary and I have earned the right to do a story we believe in. With Rebirth, I think we proved we care, and take this seriously. We love Watchmen. We love the DC Universe."
