He failed to recognize that he'd been poisoned) made me physically ill.
Yeah, and I read something about the upcoming JL arc "Lost" revolving around a sleep deprived Batman ****ing something up majorly. Maybe they're getting an early start on that, and he's going to be ****ing up alot inbetween now and then, and whatever happens in JL is just the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Indeed, twas my prediction as well. I'm guessing that this means Superman (as a title, at least) won't have much involvement with The Doomsday Clock arc.

Movies don't. Especially not the diseased, cancerous, leprosy-induced, kolera that is a Snyder exercise in brain death you would call movies.

To equate the struggle for civil rights of black people to DCEU should be grounds for admittance to a mental institution

Ozy's hand on Lex? And whose costume is that?

The costume is a mystery to me. If Johns hadn't already said that this story isn't meant to be a "Watchmen sequel", the Nostalgia items might make me think that it could be a post-Watchmen costumed hero in that world, but I don't know...

If your first TV love was Buffy, this season of The Magicians is the adult who looks like that first crush but is into your kink.

It's not a Watchmen sequel? So where is it supposed to fall in the time line? Or is it an alternate Watchmen?

I think by "not a sequel", they mean that it won't continue any plot threads from Watchmen. It makes sense, but it's pretty hazy.

As far as where it falls in the timeline, I really don't see how it matters.

I think it matters a lot. It could change what characters are actually alive and what political climate they're in.

Right... like whether Rorschach is still alive or Dr. Manhattan's view of humanity. If DC moves the story forward with these characters and it doesn't fit comfortably somewhere in the Watchmen continuity, I feel that it would cheapen their inclusion in the DC Universe.

I mean, I'm not exactly a stickler for continuity so whether something "fits" or not is no big deal to me. While I'm a huge Alan Moore fan, but not so huge as to be a fanatic, I already think that including the Watchmen characters into the DCU proper kind of cheapens them, especially if they're just using them to explain away the New52 and other continuity discrepancies (kind of like the Superman Reborn arc: a big 3 issue storyline whose only purpose was to give Superman a new costume, and explain away New52 Superman).

Which is why I said it doesn't quite matter. At least for me.

If the story sucks, everyone'll just kinda forget about it or ignore it. If it's good, I'm more interested to see how they're gonna follow up on it. Because I'm not exactly keen on seeing a "The Generic Superheroic Adventures of Nite-Owl" ongoing comic.
