SPLASH PAGE has some idle talk from Patrick “Night Owl” Wilson about his contractual obligation to sign for a sequel which everyone knows is looney, but then that’s why they call it an obligation:
“Even the guys from ‘300’ might have had a sequel,” said Wilson. “It’s the most ridiculous option. It’s sort of a financial way to protect the studio, and I would do the same thing.”
But could “Watchmen” ever have a sequel — and furthermore, would he want to be in it?
“Certainly, artistically, I can’t fathom how it would happen,” said Wilson. “But hey, if Alan Moore writes it, I’d love to read it.”
The piece ends with the small exhortation:
What do YOU think, readers? Is there any way a story like “Watchmen” could (or should) receive a sequel?
Come on, now — we say, in words of one syllable: GET A GRIP!
