DC’s Plastic Exploding Inevitably Stupid Idea

Well, it was only a matter of time.

In fact, I’m surprised it took this long (nearly 25 years after the event).

The Watchmen is going to be franchised.

Although less than cordial relationships have been maintained between Alan Moore and DC head honcho Paul Levitz, Levitz has always recognised the need not to dilute the power of The Watchmen (which has subsequent to the the film adaptation, become DC’s best selling publication). However, Levitz has stepped down, and with the incredible success of the film, the door has been opened to allow The Watchmen not only have prequels, sequels and spin offs, but also for the universe to fit into DC’s ridiculously unweidly Multiverse continuity. Although the above picture is a Wizard cover, the chances are high that DC’s most viable stock will be able to filter into cross-over stories, which will no doubt finally answer that age old question that has obviously been percolating in the readers mind for the last 20 or so years; who WOULD win a fight between Batman and Rorschach? I know I cant wait to find out. This would be a good time to check the batteries in your saracsm detector.

Weirdly, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons WILL be given first refusal, but obviously that is highly doubtful given Moore’s stance .
