Watchmen spin-off in the works?

Love it, hate it, or ignore it, Zach Snyder's Watchmen adaptation was well recieved, made it's money, and put those 'unfilmable' comments to bed once and for all.

End of story. Or so we thought...

According to a trusted report on blog site Bleeding Cool , it now appears that DC comics are ready to cash in on their top selling graphic novel of all-time with a number of sequels and prequels.

Former DC President Paul Levitz had always denied the possibility of spin-offs because he believed that it would be, 'against the wishes of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.'

However, following a huge regime change at DC, SVP Dan Didio looks set to reneg on his former colleague's comments.

It's also been suggested that Didio will roll out a number of spin-off titles, with or without the input of original creators Alan Moore or Dave Gibbons.

Although the news mainly concerns future comic book releases and not necessarily the cinematic side, Bleeding Cool is quick to remind us that Fox included a clause in the contract that gave them rights to sequels to a Watchmen movie.
