Injustice 2 director teases Watchmen character inclusion
Nite Owl could be duking it out with Batman if Boon's tweet is anything to go by.
Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel Watchmen is possibly the definitive anti-hero story; a satirical analysis of the superhero genre that spawned cultural icons like Batman and Superman. While they fall under the DC umbrella, the characters of Watchmen have never really shared a page with Metropolitans or Gothamites (except for a brief appearance by Dr. Manhattan in Flashpoint).
That could be changing thanks to Injustice 2's alternate DC universe, where an evil Superman rules supreme.
In a tweet from his personal account, NetherRealm's creative director Ed Boon is asking his followers whether they would like to see Watchmen characters in Injustice 2.
You wanna see Watchmen characters in Injustice 2 ?

More the merrier, we say. Well, maybe not merrier in the case of the conflicted team of terrorists and impotent middle-aged men. But think of the possibilities! We could have the right-wing psychopath The Comedian squaring off with feminist icon Diana Prince, the supreme being Dr. Manhattan pulverising the most powerful heroes and villains in the DC universe, and Harley Quinn bopping the why-so-serious Rorschach with a novelty-sized mallet. Sounds excellent.
