If you're still hoping for that Watchmen sequel, you can stop

Want to know what happens after Rorschach's journal lands in the offices of the New Frontiersman in the final scene of Watchmen? Dan DiDio, the executive editor over at DC Comics, may be planning for prequels and spinoffs in comic-book form, but as for another movie—forget about it.

Over at deadline.com, Nikki FInke reports that a "well-placed insider" at the studio told her there's no chance of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel ever making another appearance on the big screen, even though the contract apparently allows for one.

"There is no truth to anything related to a movie sequel," Finke was told. "Not a chance by a long shot. 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."

What do you think? Even if new movie were ever made, would you bother showing up to watch another Watchmen?
