Zack Snyder laughs off talk of Watchmen sequel

Director Zack Snyder has dismissed unfounded speculation about a possible sequel to Watchmen.

Speaking before the release of Watchmen this Friday, the “300” helmer said anyone mooting a sequel had missed “the entire point” of the film:

“There’s no way I would be involved in a sequel or prequel,” he declared. “I have no idea how you would. The work is the work. This movie is about ideas.”

“To continue is to either rehash the same idea again or you’re going to try to fix the characters, which goes against everything the book stands for,” Snyder explained.

Similar Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the Comedian in the film, added

“If we tried to do a prequel that wasn’t written by Alan Moore, we’d get crucified Unless Warner Brothers wants all of their actors to get killed, I think it’s a bad idea.”
