Gotham S5 Ace Chemicals puts the Wayne murder on June 27th.

That seems oddly soon considering what was said during DC Fandome...

Nope. The newspaper reported the murders on the 27th.
Newspapers could have talked about it for weeks.

Putting it on that date would conflict with Bruce's calendar line in "Pinewood".

Bruno Heller basically says "I can't tell you for sure" about Pennyworth's connection to Gotham.
NDAs?

Now that Lucius has been cast:

I guess approximately 25 (Pennyworth), 45-50 (Gotham), 60 (Gotham Finale)?

Ehhhh, 19 or 20 at least in Pennyworth. (Dude still looks fairly young even in the quick glimpse in the trailer.)
Late 30s/early 40s (Gotham), early 50s (Gotham Finale)

No way he's the same age as Alfred.

Watchmen: Rorschach takes the HBO show into it's canon. A reference is made to Rorschach masks relating to Oklahoma.

I guess Doomsday Clock is in the Comic Multiverse while this is in the Live-Action Multiverse.

Interesting. I'll keep that in mind.

This is a weird thing to bring up, but I'm wondering what if the Watchmen movie was pre-Crisis "Earth-Watchmen" (in the live-action multiverse), and the HBO series and Rorschach is in a post-Crisis timeline of that Earth with the actual Squid instead of a Doctor Manhattan powered bomb?

Movie Timeline and Show Timeline?

That's a fair head-canon. It's pretty reasonable, too.

Pre-Crisis Earth-87
Watchmen: Ultimate Cut

Post-Crisis Earth-87
Before Watchmen
Watchmen
Watchmen (TV Show)
Watchmen: Rorschach

Earth-??
Before Watchmen
Watchmen
Doomsday Clock

Note: Not canon breaking, but Dr. Manhattan's father is named Josef Osterman in Before Watchmen and Hans Osterman in Watchmen (HBO). It's probably a nickname, middlename or perhaps he changed his name.

Josef "Hans" Osterman.

Isn't it just easier to assume that the Watchmen TV show and movie are on separate Earths until we see proof otherwise? Crisis re-wrote the history of some worlds for sure, and obviously all the CW Earths were combined, but the overwhelming precedent seems to be that each version of the live action DC characters/stories are on a different Earth (with a few rare exceptions like Constantine.)

That's assuming I take headcanon as fact. I don't.

If one day I were to make a Watchmen timeline thread, post 1 would be the show, post 2 would be the movie. They wouldn't be merged into one post like the X-Men timeline.

Okay so the whole thing with the Wayne murders being on a Saturday was wrong on my observation. They were actually talking about Mario getting the necklace, not the murder itself. So I'll adjust.

Finally starting Stargirl, and noticed in the first episode that the move seems to take place at least over 2 days rather than 1. Given that they're all wearing different clothes when arriving at Blue Valley. I assume they left California and stayed the night somewhere between the first day and arrived at Blue Valley on the second. With the distance between California and Nebraska, this makes sense.

I no longer have DCU so bear with me while I look for the time stamps.
