Things We Saw Today: This Doomsday Clock Fan Trailer is Shockingly Good

Is it weird that, while I didn’t enjoy Watchmen or The Justice League, I kind of want to see this non-existent movie mash-up? The fan trailer for Doomsday Clock, made by YouTube creator Alex Luthor, effortlessly blends both films to make a coherent and compelling trailer. The trailer is based on DC’s 2017 limited series Doomsday Clock, written by Geoff Johns, with art by Gary Frank and Brad Anderson.

Part of what makes the trailer so seamless is that both movies were directed by Zack Snyder, and his style is clearly evident throughout. I especially enjoyed the nod to “multiverses” which featured glimpses of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman and Christopher Reeve’s Superman. We also get to see Ezra Miller’s Flash come face to face with the CW’s Grant Gustin for Flash Squared. Now that’s a crossover I’d pay good money to see.
