Watchmen Part 2??

02.02.2009

Unlike FRIDAY THE 13TH, Zack Snyder's upcoming WATCHMEN probably isn't going to get a sequel. But that doesn't mean that some studio executive haven't at least thought of the idea. Snyder spoke to the New York Times and revealed what he thinks happenins after WATCHMEN ends:

I was going to make a thing called Planet Rorschach. So you see this planet, and it’s covered with New York City. It’s like a planet of New York City. There’s no suburbs. There’s one giant Empire State Building, like Mount Olympus, in the middle of it. And hovering above the needle is Manhattan, blue, glowing. But the planet’s going, “Hurm, hurm, hurm, hurm, hurm, hurm.” You can’t tell, it’s this big, deafening, “Hurm.” And as you get close, you go down into the city and the whole world is populated with Rorschachs. And they’re all bumping into each other, going, “Hurm, hurm, no compromise, hurm, hurm, Armageddon.” That’s basically it.

Snyder adds that he told WB, "Is that the movie you guys want to make?," which I'm sure was met with a resounding "NO." But that was the plan for a short comic tie-in that never materialized. Dave Gibbons was to do the art but, for whatever reason, that never happened. And for those really worried about a WATCHMEN sequel, Snyder says he would never do it and he highly doubts they would get any of the actors to return. Phew.

I think it's a great idea. I read Watchmen, and the sequel, Dan & Laurie Make A Porno, is going to be awesome!

Seems pretty obvious that it was a sarcastic "pitch" to show how stupid the idea for a sequel would be, or to at least keep them from even asking him to make a sequel; if it was really suggested at all.

C'mon, It's a Joke

Okay, maybe I completely missed the point, but I thought that this was a joke by Zack Snyder. It seems obvious to me that he has no intentions of making a sequel, so he suggests this absolutely out there and totally strange idea just to show how stupid a sequel to Watchmen would be to the execs at WB. Maybe I'm wrong, but I laughed at this and thought Snyder had a pretty twisted sense of humor to suggest this as a sequel. I hope I'm right, but I think some of the responses are taking this

Maybe I'm wrong, but I laughed at this and thought Snyder had a pretty twisted sense of humor to suggest this as a sequel. I hope I'm right, but I think some of the responses are taking this too literally. All indications have been that Zack is showing a lot of respect to the graphic novel and doing his best not to disappoint the fans.

But, come on. It's funny. I have more respect for Snyder if he actually pitched this idea as a joke. Could you imagine him going to the execs with this idea and pretending to sell it to the people at the WB? It's hilarious. I hope that is what he had in mind when he presented this story.

For some reason, I love this idea. Not as any sort of Watchmen canon, mind you, but the idea amuses me to no end.

Question

Hey just wanted to ask something, does this article contain any spoilers for the Watchmen movie because I noticed the article had some text saying " happening after Watchmen ends ". So what´s up with that ?

Resounding "No", my ass

They made a sequel to movies like Donnie Darko, American Psycho and Cruel Intentions. As long as it makes $$$, you bet your butt, they are thinking of a sequel.
