â€œWe are all signed for sequels, but, ya know, thereâ€™d be no Rorschach, thereâ€™d be no Comedian – – itâ€™d be sorta useless. Itâ€™d have to be a prequel. But Iâ€™d say unless Alan Moore says heâ€™s gonna write something, weâ€™ll never see Watchmen 2.
There may be someone sitting in a room somewhere at Warner Bros waiting to see if this does OK, and ready to pitch another â€“ but I doubt Zach would do another, and without him, I wouldnâ€™t go back, and I canâ€™t imagine any of the other actors would want to either.
Itâ€™s like the 300 sequel theyâ€™re talking about â€“ how do you do that? I guess they can do a prequel â€“ but it makes no sense. Iâ€™d love to be a fly-on-the-wall in the meeting in which someone brings up a Watchmen sequel â€“ especially if it happens with Zack around, because he wonâ€™t want any part of it. I think this is it; what you see, is what you get. It was always a oner for me”
That’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who I spoke to for â€œWatchmenâ€ this time last year, verbally obliteraring all prospect of a sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2009 hit.
Fast-forward a year later, and Bleeding Cool reports that several â€œWatchmenâ€ follow-ups are being discussed. Alas, weâ€™re only talking in literary form at the moment, but considering â€“ as Morgan says above â€“ all of the actors have signed for sequels, and Warner Bros has the right to do them, it wouldnâ€™t at all surprise me if the smiling yellow badge makes its way back to multiplexes in the near future.
