So we're not going to see what happened to Sam when he landed on Earth?
We will, but it won't be the main focus of the movie.

that's awesome, i didnt' even realize they were already planning another movie.  moon was excellent smile

i'm excited for the wolfman remake.  i'm sick of all the remakes coming out just like everyone else, but this one really seems to hold onto alot of what made the original classy.  hopefully i won't be disappointed.

I don't get why people are so against remakes. No one objects cover songs (I just got Beatles For Sale - 7 of the 14 songs on that album are covers). I think it's interesting to see how different filmmakers interpret the same story.

And it's not like they're a new thing - the Maltese falcon and the wizard of oz are both remakes.

I hope it does happen. It would be hillarious. Plus, Zack Snyder can't completely miss the point of something that doesn't exist yet so it's bound to be better than the first one

so... world peace would fail because some right winged media publishes the story which lacks the actuall confirmation of who did it? (he sent the diary before they went to antarctica so the final outcome wasn't even known to Rorschach)... unlikely
especially if Night Owl II and Silk Spectre II confirm the story believed by everyone else and acuse Rorschach of insanity (which everyone would believe)

The fact that the diary exists means the truth will come out one way or the other. I guess it's possible that everyone would be so happy and at peace that they wouldn't care but I think the message of the book is you can't achieve world peace by lying to people. ... .... ... ... THIS IS WHAT THE SEQUEL SHOULD BE ABOUT!!!!!!

I agree with you Bend - I just think it would be funny if Zack Snyder tried to make a sequel without Alan Moore's help

This is just terrible. The only way this could REMOTELY work is if they went back into the period where the Comedian was still apart of the Watchmen pre-superhero banning law. Like the video game The End is Nigh. But in other words: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

I could see them adapting Top Ten or something and playing up the Watchmen connection but there's no way Watchmen II will happen. Even if it was somehow good, the fan uproar would kill it.

I'd love to see Zack Snyder adapt the 49ers (as long as he stays away from the soundtrack). On second thought, Bryan Singer would be better.

The reason why Watchmen is in a different universe than DC canon is that DC didn't want Moore messing with the Charlton Comics characters. He originally wanted to use these classic characters in the Watchmen story, fucking with them so much that it would destroy any chance that they could be used again. That's why The Question became Rorschach, Captain Atom became Dr. Manhattan, etc. That's why you don't see Watchmen characters in other DC comics (other than little easter egg references).

DC doesn't do Watchmen characters in their comics. Instead, in recent years, they've been making the Charlton characters more like the Watchmen characters. The Question is become more of a vigilante and an Objectivist. There have been other character changes as well.

Basically, to do a sequel to Watchmen would ruin it's allure. You could do a prequel, showing the Minuteman days, but that's it. That's what Moore originally planned, actually.

Has anyone else notice that, despite Alan Moore's objections, most Alan Moore adaptations are really good? LXG is the only one that stinks.

Probably. There were elements that weren't great, but on the whole it was pretty okay.

the ultimate cut really makes the movie a lot better by adding way more from the comic (like the Black Freighter)... but i am sure that a lot of people complain that it's now 3.5 hours long

Watchmen completely misses the point of the book and has a terrible soundtrack but it's still a good film.

Elements? I can't pick out a single thing as one indivisible "element" that was less crappy than all the rest of them.

Yeah. I was able to sit through Watchmen without having to look at my watch eighty times. Given, I wasn't wearing a watch at that time, and also I was being given a neck rub, so it was pretty easy viewing, compared to sitting in a cinema for 3 hours wearing silly glasses that made me feel weird.

Tim Burton's Batman is still the best adaptation for me. Dark Knight is awesome though. The Joker is  never not awesome.
