Watchmen and Crisis on Infinite Earths were two of the greatest superhero stories of the '80s, and as time has gone on they've become timeless entries in the great comic books of all time. And now, DC Studios is developing both as animated feature films.
The announcement came after a screening of DC's latest animated feature, Justice League: Warworld. Fans were informed that, like Warworld, the animated Watchmen would be rated R. Considering the extremely mature themes in the graphic novel, that makes a lot of sense.
Though very little was teased regarding Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, SDCC-goers did get a glimpse of the logos for both it and Watchmen. Take a look at those logos here:
No official release date or cast have been announced for either of the projects, but panelists did reveal the movies were being made for home video release. This follows the pattern of several of DC's recent forays into animation, all of which begin by coming out on Blu-ray/DVD first and then heading to streaming service Max later.
