DC Studios recently hinted that some major announcements for its upcoming animated slate were on the way, and this morning during Warner Bros. Entertainment's San Diego Comic-Con pane (via Toonado.com), we got word on two huge projects that are currently in development.
Animated movies based on Alan Moore's Watchmen and the acclaimed Crisis on Infinite Earths arc in the works, and are scheduled to release at some point next year.
Details are few and far between for the moment, but you can check out logos for both animated features below.
We've seen elements of Crisis on Infinite Earths in several previous animated films, but this is the first time the story will be adapted in full. Warner Bros. was said to be developing an R-rated animated take on Watchmen back in 2017, but nothing ever came of it.
We're not sure if this will be a direct adaptation of Moore's original tale or some kind of sequel/spin-off (like the recent HBO live-action series), but we'll be sure to keep you updated as more information comes our way.
James Gunn confirmed that all movies, animated projects and video games would be connected in the new DCU during the "Gods and Monsters" slate announcement, so we assume this applies to Justice League Crisis on Infinite Earths. Watchmen will likely be an Elseworlds story, however.
