Karl Urban As The Batman? Former Dredd Star Chimes In On Casting Rumors

Karl Urban will forever be associated with the brutal, unforgiving world of Judge Dredd. And that’s no bad thing, given those mooted reports of a possible cameo appearance in Rebellion’s upcoming TV revival, Mega-City One.

But what are the chances that Urban will decide to venture into uncharted territory? Like, say, Gotham City? That very question came up in conversation when JoBlo spoke to the actor in anticipation of Bent, a white-knuckle thriller in which he shares the screen with Sofia Vergara and Andy Garcia.

Turns out Karl Urban has never actually considered the possibility of playing the Batman – either for Matt Reeves’ gestating standalone pic or another project entirely – as he wasn’t aware of those casting rumors. Well, we say rumors, when really we mean wishful thinking from a small pocket of the DC fanbase.

Oh, really? Wow. I don’t know. I haven’t really contemplated that.

Karl Urban Confirms That Alex Garland Actually Directed Dredd

I've heard a few times over the years from people that Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation) was the person who actually directed Dredd, not Pete Travis. Well, in a recent interview with JoBlo, Karl Urban confirmed that this is actually true!

“A huge part of the success of Dredd is in fact due to Alex Garland and what a lot of people don’t realize is that Alex Garland actually directed that movie.”

You may or may not remember the rumors of Pete Travis being removed from the film and barred from the editing room. Well, that apparently actually happened and Garland took over. Dredd was such a great movie, and now we know one of the reasons why. It just wasn't Garland's great script, it was also his directing skills.

Karl went on to say that he's still open to reprising his role on the Judge Dredd series Mega-City One,

Dredd: Karl Urban Still Wants in on Mega City One TV Series

Karl Urban is still eager to reprise the role of Dredd for the forthcoming Judge Dredd: Mega-City One TV series. Judge Dredd is a cop in the post-apocalyptic future and polices the crime polluted metropolis of Mega-City One. The character hails from the pages of British comic 2000 Ad, and Dredd has become a beloved cult figure. Sadly, he hasn’t had much luck trying to crack the big screen.

‘Defective’ VOD Review

Stars: Colin Paradine, Raven Cousens, Ashley Armstrong, Dennis Andres, Jamie Tarantini, Nick Smyth, Ry Barrett, Andrei Preda, Christopher Spaleta, Erin Stuart, Neil Affleck, Diana Goldman | Written and Directed by Reese Eveneshen

Well well, it would seem that someone has been watching a little too much RoboCop (or maybe read too much Judge Dredd?) and decided that they had an idea for a sequel, expanding on the concept of the Ocp and the police state they wanted to bring in with the Ed-209 bots… only no-one would a) let them make a sequel; and b) no-one would give them a budget to make a film anywhere near as good either.

So what do we end up with? Defective. A film that loving lives up to its title.

In the near future, the corporation S.E.A., has implemented North America’s first and only police state. Uniformed, anonymous Preservers of Peace investigate, judge,

Mute Director Duncan Jones Want to Adapt a 2000 Ad Comic Book Series

If Mute director Duncan Jones was going to tackle a comic book movie, he’d love it to based on a character from cult British comic 2000 Ad. The comic began in the late 1970s, with a focus on science-fiction and action stories. 2000 Ad quickly became known for its lurid artwork and dark sense of humor, and over the years it built up an array of great characters, including Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog, Halo Jones and, of course, Judge Dredd.

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action
Brace yourselves for the utter insanity that is the Accident Man trailer. Deadpool and Logan have kicked the door wide open for Hollywood to explore the idea of R-rated comic book movies in a big way. And, in this case, in kind of a small way. Accident Man isn't going to make its way to the big screen, but that doesn't mean it can't pack a serious R-rated punch. If nothing else, this footage looks absolutely nuts and, though cheesy, pretty impressive for something on a very minimal budget. Dare we say, there are even gentle shades of John Wick in here. After all, this movie was directed by a former stuntman, much like John Wick and John Wick: Chapter Two.

That said, it's hard to expect that Accident Man, which arrives on DVD and Digital platforms on February 6, 2018, will be nearly as pleasantly surprising as John Wick. However, the

First trailer for Accident Man starring Scott Adkins

Sony Pictures has debuted a trailer for the upcoming action thriller Accident Man. Directed by Jesse Johnson, the film is based on Pat Mills and Tony Skinner’s Toxic! comic book series and features a cast that includes Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Ashley Greene, David Paymer, Ray Park, and Ray Stevenson; check it out below…

A deadly hitman becomes an accidental hero in the pulse-pounding action-thriller Accident Man, available on DVD and Digital February 6 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the underground British comic Toxic! by Pat Mills (creator of the “Judge Dredd” comic) and Tony Skinner, this darkly humorous and stylishly violent adaptation stars Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange, The Expendables 2) as Accident Man, a stone-cold killer who must face off against a rogue’s gallery of ruthless assassins in order to uncover the truth about his ex-girlfriend’s murder. Accident Man hits its target with a

Blu-ray Review – Paradise Alley (1978)

Paradise Alley, 1978.

Written and Directed by Sylvester Stallone.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Lee Canalito, Armand Assante, Anne Archer, Frank McRae, Joe Spinell, Terry Funk, Frank Stallone, and Tom Waits.


Three brothers in the slums of 1940s New York try to make their fortune by training the youngest sibling to become an underground wrestler.

After the success of Rocky in 1976 Sylvester Stallone was a hot property in Hollywood and was pretty much able to get any passion projects he wanted a green light, which is why between Rocky and Rocky II we got trucking federation drama F.I.S.T. and, more significantly, Paradise Alley. Significant because as well as writing it Stallone also directed it (and in true Little Britain style, also sang the theme tune), which marked his first time behind the camera, setting him up to direct Rocky II the same year, and also because despite sharing many themes and plot threads as Rocky,

Rogue Trooper Redux Review

I’ll get straight to the point: Rogue Trooper Redux is a really deep cut. Based on a British 2000 Ad comic series (the same publisher who brought us Judge Dredd), the source material for Rebellion’s eponymous 2006 PS2-era title has been given the remaster treatment courtesy of UK-based developer Tick Tock. Sure, it may be one of the most obscure comic book adaptations to grace our consoles, yet the more meaningful question is: is it worth playing in 2017? Well, if you’re on the market for a pretty antique “blast from the past” style war shooter, then, this might be exactly what the blue-skinned field medic ordered.

You are the titular Rogue Trooper, a genetically manufactured “Souther” super soldier who has been bred and developed specifically to help quash the looming nazi-esque Nort threat. The nasty Norts have devastated the futuristic “Nu-Earth” with biological and chemical weapons which have

‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ Review: Rebellion Rules This Remake

Back in the 1980s and '90s, when comic books were entering a new age of prosperity, the big two (Marvel and DC) resorted to gimmicks to sell book. Holograms, die-cut covers, and poly bags became all the rage. When this happened, I turned to other publishers, including a fledgling upstart aptly named Dark Horse, and a popular publisher in the U.K., 2000 Ad. As a publisher, 2000 Ad was telling mature themed stories like Judge Dredd and a comic called Rogue Trooper, co-created by Dave Gibbons, the co-creator of Watchmen for DC. I remember Rogue Trooper's adventures, as it was like Sgt. Rock and GI Joe, with a sci-fi twist. Developer Rebellion, the creators of the stellar Sniper Elite franchise, created a game based on Rogue Trooper in 2006 for the Sony PS2 and original Xbox, and even ported it to the Nintendo Wii in 2009. And now that game has been

Geostorm: back to the 90s with Dean Devlin’s Armageddon 2

Ed Kegenof Oct 24, 2017

It’s the end of the world yet again in the sci-fi disaster thriller, Geostorm. An unofficial sequel to Michael Bay’s Armageddon...?

With Independence Day, director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin managed to single-handedly resuscitate the disaster movie - a genre that had wheezed to a halt following an increasingly daft sequence of examples in the late 70s and early 80s (for a stunning night in, check out the low-rent majesty of Meteor, The Swarm or When Time Ran Out). Sure, Independence Day was an alien invasion movie straight out of the 50s, but its scenes of global panic and destruction were pure Irwin Allen. A certified hit in 1996, Independence Day sparked a wave of incendiary movies in the same vein, with scenarios varying from exploding volcanoes (Dante’s Peak and, well, Volcano), a giant monster (Godzilla) and duelling asteroid movies Deep Impact and Armageddon.

Karl Urban is unsure what’s happening with Star Trek 4

Back in July of last year, Paramount and producer J.J. Abrams officially announced that Star Trek 4 was in development, and would see the return of Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk, the father of Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk, from the 2009 reboot.

Since then, we’ve had little in the way of news on the project, save for some comments from Zachary Quinto suggesting that “there’s no guarantee” the sequel will movie forward, and now those comments have been echoed by Karl Urban during an interview with Screen Crush.

“You know as much as I do, my friend,” said Urban, who plays Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy in the rebooted series. “Listen, we’d all love to make another Star Trek movie. That’s absolutely certain. But if we don’t get that opportunity then I’m really happy to have ended on such a good note. We had such
