The web has been going wild with rumors after Bleeding Cool published this article about a possible Watchmen sequel. Granted, they were referring mostly to a possible sequel to the graphic novel and not the movie, but the site did make a brief mention of who the movie sequel rights belonged to. Deadline Hollywood‘s Nikki Finki checked it out and received the following:
But a well-placed insider tells me: “There is no truth to anything related to a movie sequel. Not a chance by a longshot. With regards to the comics, well, I guess anything is possible. I’ll keep my opinion to myself as to whether it’s a smart idea to do so.”
Zack Snyder’s Watchmen wasn’t a big hit for Warner Bros., making $185.3 million worldwide on a budget of $130 million.
