'Dredd' Spinoff Series 'Superfiend' Poster and Images Unveiled

20 October 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Dredd 3D fans fruitlessly petition for a sequel, and star Karl Urban continues to champion the idea, producer Adi Shankar has taken it upon himself to give fans what they want. He's created an 'unofficial' spinoff in the form of a new animated web series title Superfiend. And EW has our first look with the poster and four images.

It has been two years since Dredd 3D hit theaters, and while it wasn't a smash hit at the box office, it has spent the past 24 months accumulating a very strong fanbase. While no sequel has been officially green lit at this time, Adi Shankar is delving deeper into the mythology of 2000 Ad, the British comic that spawned it.

Superfiend will be inspired by the fan-favorite 'Dark Judges' storyline, and its intended as a sort-of sequel to Dredd 3D, though it is also a part of Adi Shankar's 'Bootleg Universe', »

'Dredd' Producer Will Launch 'Dark Judges' Miniseries Online

6 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans still hold on to hope that a sequel to Dredd 3D will happen some day, producer Adi Shankar is giving fans a spinoff miniseries that will debut online for free later this month.

The seven-part mini-series will center on the Dark Judges from the original 2000Ad comic books, characters which Dredd 3D writer Alex Garland previously revealed would be the focus of a movie sequel, if it were to ever happen. The Dark Judges include Judge Death, Judge Fire, Judge Fear and Judge Mortis, who frequently clashed with Dredd and Cassandra Anderson in the comic book.

The mini-series won't be officially connected to the movie, but it is a part of Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, which includes the short films The Punsher: Dirty Laundry starring Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman, and Venom: Truth in Journalism, which featured Ryan Kwanten as Spider-Man's nemesis Eddie Brock/Venom.

'Dredd' Prequel More Likely Than a Sequel

7 September 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite only earning $35 million worldwide in 2012, fans are still clamoring for a sequel to Dredd 3D. Star Karl Urban has said on a number of occasions that a sequel may still happen some day. However, the actor recently made an appearance at Chicago Comic-Con, where he revealed that now it's more likely that a prequel will be made, instead of a sequel.

"Why yes, there is a definite possibility. But, it is more likely that we will do the origins story with Dredd trekking through the cursed earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo."

In the original Judge Dredd comics, Fargo was the first Chief Judge Dredd was cloned from. Fargo was never seen again after it was revealed that Dredd was his cloned. Max von Sydow portrayed Fargo in the 1995 Judge Dredd adaptation that starred Sylvester Stallone as the title character.

If the film does turn out to be a prequel, »

'Dredd' Sequel Is Possible Says Karl Urban

25 February 2014 7:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it was released back in 2012, Dredd 3D did not have a great showing at the box office, taking in an abysmal $13.4 million domestically and $22.2 million in international markets for a worldwide total of $35.6 million. Despite these numbers, the comic book adaptation starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd was well-received by critics and fans alike, many of whom have been clamoring for a sequel. During a recent press conference in Germany, Karl Urban revealed that a follow-up may actually happen.

The actor said that "conversations" are currently ongoing between Lionsgate and screenwriter Alex Garland. While he agreed that the box office performance was poor, he added that the studio has taken note that the movie has found an audience on Blu-ray and DVD.

Of course, this isn't the first time we've heard that a sequel may happen. Back in January 2013, Dredd 3D director Pete Travis revealed he isn't directing a follow-up, »
