    The Watchmen got dogged pretty hard from what I remember but I actually really like that story and how brutal it is. The newest comics regarding it called the Doomsday Clock has the characters crossover into Batman's universe. I caught some of the plot to it but never saw how it ended.

    Dr. Manhattan is supposed to be responsible for the DC serried called “the new 52”. He destroys the multiverse and makes it how he wants it. That’s how they’ve worked watchmen into DC fully. Along with owl man, etc.

    That’s was the current new storyline from the comics to get rid of their complicated timelines.

    Is that newer than The Doomsday Clock? I thought that was the plot to that comic where Manhatten built the DC universe after he said he was going to leave and create life somewhere else; exactly what you just said basically. I never got to the part where Manhatten was revealed as the creator.

    I didn't really like what they did to Manhatten's character in the HBO series, having his true character hidden and all for most the season, but we also never got to see how that was going to play out.

    I totally wrote this movie off because of him untill I saw Tenet. He was alright in that.

    LOL at everyone ragging on Affleck, you all totally forgot George Clooney? That was by FAR the worst Batman movie of all time.

    Affleck could have been better if the movie was better altogether. I liked his brutal take on the character and he had the physique for a proper Batman, but his movies lacked just about everything else which isn't really his fault. Plus, he's not a very likeable guy so that adds to it. Val Kilmer sort of suffered from the same as his movies were the start of the super cheesy Batman movies for that era and Clooney just ran it off a cliff lol.

    So I’ll come correct my confusion; doomsday clock is manhattans official universe creation. But this links all the way back to the new 52’s creation. It’s a continuity of that story and how all the multiverses got merged.

    I haven’t seen that series yet but if he isn’t as powerful as the comics and isn’t as cold and dead to humans as portrayed in the movie and graphic novels; I’d say that’s a downgrade.

    Okay, that makes sense. What you were saying was exactly what I knew Doomsday Clock to be and I knew the New 52 was older than that, but I don't actually read the comics. I just like to get summaries of them or I'll watch the animated series sometimes if there is nothing else.

    The HBO series is an odd take but the show is pretty interesting overall. I will just say that he is suppressed for most of the series but he does make an appearance and he is as powerful as he is known to be.

    Wasn't ragging so much on Affleck himself, just the let down the films were. I thought Ben was fine in the films but just the overall movie(s) were meh. Poor writing and the villains were meh to me.

    Jesse Eisenberg was a complete failure on casting as Lex Luther! He's not a terrible actor, even though I find him annoying, but he was just way too young for the role and his weird twitchy behavior doesn't fit Lex Luther's calm and smooth demeanor. It was like he thought he could turn the role into another Joker type character and it was terrible.

    It was a reimagine. Rather then being a greedy real-estate /wallstreet tycoon he was a Twitter/Facebook sleaze bag.

    That's a good point that I didn't think of, but along those lines, think of Oscar Isaac's tech tycoon character in Ex Machina and that would have made a decent Lex Luther. He was socially awkward and very stand-offish but he definitely came off more villain-like. If anything, they could have kept that style but it just needed someone else to play the role.

    Especially with Alicia Vikander walking around naked for a good portion of the time! Lol. It definitely had a creepy vibe to it, but I agree that it was a good movie.
