Does the new Rorschach in the HBO preview confirm a Doomsday Clock inspired plot?

by Rachel Roth

 A preview of HBO’s upcoming series gave a brief sneak peek of Watchmen and revealed a very Rorschach like character, hinting at a possible Doomsday Clock storyline.

During the Golden Globes, HBO released a montage video of all their upcoming shows premiering this year, including Damon Lindelof’s much anticipated TV series based on one of DC’s most famous comic books, Watchmen. Start the countdown to the official trailer because it’s on its way.

Based on the 12-issue graphic novel by Alan Moore, Watchmen is set in a fictionalized world where superheroes are treated like violent criminals, and retired heroes treated like celebrities. Masked heroes, as they’re referred to, are strictly outlawed and anyone engaging in vigilantism will be arrested and tried with breaking the law. It’s not like Captain America: Civil War where the government puts a leash on superheroes for making too many messes; Watchmen is grim without any cheery disposition. The masked heroes are treated no differently than sexual offenders’ police might chase down alleyways.

the most popular graphic novels of all time and inspired a movie directed by Zack Snyder. One character who drastically stood out, particularly in Snyder’s film, was Walter Kovacs/Rorschach. A mentally unstable, borderline sociopathic, vigilante that took saving the world to the level of an extremist.

Compelling, frightening and sympathetic in a strange demented way, Rorschach lives on to be the most favored “Watchmen” character. A favoritism that’s well deserved. Forget Dr. Manhattan and his glowing nakedness or Nite Owl and his puppy dog eyes. Let’s all love Rorschach for killing sadistic pedophiles and driving a compacted prison into a riot in mere minutes; he’s the king.

Honestly, Rorschach was like a homeless, psychotic version of Batman. A guy damaged by past trauma but gifted with an incredible mind and a unique brand of willpower, takes to the streets to inflict his anger on criminals as a type of therapy.

His popularity only increased when non-comic readers saw Jackie Earle Haley’s portrayal in Snyder’s film, bringing him to life-like no other actor could have. In my personal opinion, Haley makes number two on the list of best comic book portrayals, number one being Heath Ledger as The Joker.

Sony’s MIB 23 Crossover is Officially Dead

On paper, a crossover between Men in Black and 21 Jump Street sounded like a crazy idea. News of MIB 23 first broke after the Sony Pictures hack in 2014 leaked emails detailing the studio’s plans to combine two of their biggest franchises. Many scoffed at the notion, but the project garnered enough momentum to hire Muppets Most Wanted director James Bobin. There haven’t been any updates since then, but now we know why. According to producer Walter Parkes, the crossover is no longer happening.

Parkes delivered the verdict in a recent interview with Empire (via Yahoo), and he seemed to echo the view held by many skeptics since they first heard that the film was happening. “We gave it a shot,” said Parkes. “It turned out to be an impossible match-up.” Phil Lord and Chris Miller directed the original 21 Jump Street and its 2014 sequel, 22 Jump Street. The duo were writing the script for MIB 23, which was intended as the third installment in that series. It would have featured Jonah Hill’s Schmidt and Channing Tatum’s Jenko joining the titular alien-policing task force. Bobin signed on to direct the film in May 2016. However, Hill expressed his own doubts that the film would get made just three months later.

It may have been unlikely, but Lord and Miller’s track record indicates that MIB 23 could have been fun. Regardless, the Men in Black series is about to be revived later this year in Men in Black International, starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. That film will hit theaters on June 14. As for Jump Street, it remains to be seen whether Sony will produce a third installment of that franchise.
