On the small chance Hollywood decides to make the decision to make a second Watchmen film, they’d have similar success to the original movie if they centered the plot on the lives of Nite Owl, played by Patrick Wilson, and Silk Spectre, played by Malin Åkerman, after Ozymandus united the world through chaos. Since there was peace, the newspaper was publishing articles from their useless information section.
The plot could start with the villain, played by Adam Driver, reading a published article about Rorschach’s diary and be plagued with fear that the destruction discussed in the diary will eventually be back and worse in the future. The villain will do his best to eradicate all superheroes due to his belief that they will bring the destruction of the human species. He finds out that Silk Spectre and Nite Owl have been living together since their retirement. Despite their retirement, the villain believes that they’ll assume their superhero alter egos as soon as any danger is present.
Walking home one night, Silk Spectre is captured by the villain and awakes later tied to the wall in a dingy cellar. After realizing Silk Spectre never returned the night before, Nite Owl realizes something has happened. Through his investigation, he realizes that he cannot take on the villain alone and reluctantly contacts Ozymandus to help him. Ozymandus is hesitant at first but then agrees to help Nite Owl due to his regret of causing so much trouble before. The two assume their alter egos and begin their attack on the villain. The villain is taken back when he sees Nite Owl and Ozymandus breaking into his layer. He never thought about Ozymandus helping Nite Owl. He thought that Ozymandus would help him take out the other super heroes since he did before with Dr. Manhattan.
Ozymandus and Nite Owl take advantage of the villain’s confusion and are able to overpower him. They end up killing the villain and freeing Silk Spectre. In order to avoid this happening again, they all break into the newspaper company and steal Rorschach’s diary, making sure to delete all articles that have not yet been released.
The movie will end up being a follow up of the original movie plot. Due to some of the violence that’ll take place in Silk Spectre’s capture and the villain’s death, the movie will most likely remain as R-rated. It won’t be as gruesome as the original movie but will still not be suitable for all viewers.
Since the movie’s characters are so different from other DC characters, the movie won’t have any crossovers with other characters from the DC universe. This is because the characters are so different that they’ve a different fan base. Those who love Batman and Superman don’t share the same interests as those who prefer Dr. Manhattan and Rorschach as they have very different mindsets and motives. Superman’s main goal is to protect humanity while Rorschach is paranoid and kills for revenge.
Overall, there’s only a very small chance that Hollywood will decide to make a sequel to the Watchmen movie. So much happened in that movie and honestly it could’ve been made into two different movies to include all information in the comic book. It’s very hard to make a movie directly off of a novel or comic book without making it into two movies, so the movie isn’t obnoxiously long. Of course, sequels are never as good as the original and since there are no more Watchmen comics, it doesn’t make sense to have another movie.
