Quick Hitters: MCU & Fox are sharing characters, A Dredd TV show starring Karl Urban, the return of Yoda
Karl Urban Could return as Dredd in the TV show!
Karl Urban was fantastic as Dredd in the 2012 reboot and those of us wishing for a sequel, only had those hopes dashed away as time wore on. Well, fear not my friends because we might actually see Karl Urban once again yield the Lawgiver.
According to executive producer Jason Kingsley on the 2000 AD podcast, the upcoming TV show, Judge Dredd: Mega City One, could feature Karl Urban's return as Dredd. Schedule permitting.
For those unaware, Karl Urban is a longtime fan of the Judge Dredd comic, so you've got to believe that if his timing allows, he would be all over this show.
Return to the franchise, he will? Yoda might appear in The Last Jedi!
During an interview with Variety, the voice of Yoda himself, Frank Oz, was asked about some rumors that Yoda will appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and he gave a pretty cagey response.
I think this means, "See Yoda as a Force ghost, you will.".
Who watches the Watchers?
For those who haven't yet seen it, the Watchers appeared in a post-credits scene for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and in that scene we see Stan Lee himself telling the Watchers that he's seen some really crazy shit in his time. This scene does two things in that it establishes that Stan Lee's cameos across the MCU are indeed connected, even if we've still got zero ideas as to who he actually is and that the Watchers belong to Marvel. Now I know what you're thinking, "But I thought Fox owned the Watchers?", and you'd be right. Kind of.
While addressing the post-credits scenes with in an interview with SlashFilm, MCU head honcho Kevin Feige shed some light on the vague subject of who owns who.
Sounds convoluted, but I'm good with it. Feige later confirmed in the interview that the MCU does indeed own the Skrulls. Since Infinity Wars is next adventure for the Avengers and most of the MCU at large, might we actually see the fucking Secret Invasion on screen next? I cannot properly surmise how excited I am for the prospect, so I turn to Clark Griswold, "Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?".
