“Watchmen”: Watch Us Turn Into Doctor Manhattan at SDCC 2019

Watchmen fans on the ground at SDCC the rest of the weekend will want to pause their viewings of the new trailer for a grand experience at the corner Gynn and Hoffman of 6th and Island. Yes, now you yourself can put yourself in the shoes of Doctor Manhattan himself.

Once you enter and walk up to the striking blue booth with vintage-style posters, you step inside and learn a little more about Jonathan Osterman. Then, after some prompting you stand back, and you will go through the same transformation to become Doctor Manhattan yourself. It was a funny feeling, being reduced to nothing but an atom and reforming with the power of a god, but we adjusted quickly. Check out our transformation below:

I promise, I will only use my powers for good, like getting myself all of the action figures I have ever wanted. After our transformation, we were rewarded with a cool pin set.
