The only comparable story in the Marvel universe to Watchmen is Civil War - and even that isn't even as good as Watchmen by a large factor.
If Disney/Marvel do things right, and Sony and Fox also pitch in - they can possibly do a Civil War movie. Maybe make some changes since no one wants to see Cap get sniped by a time warping bullet...
It would add a good/decent plot and more reason for the heroes to fight one another.
Although that would be a very expensive movie and require a lot of cooperation, so much so that its close to impossible. Budget is definitely one issue since the actors would start climbing the pay scale after current contracts finish up, but I would suspect it would be a blockbuster and that may not matter at that point.
Here's to wishful thinking
