Earlier this month, producer Adi Shankar announced, with some overdramatic fanfare, that he’s working on a seven-part “Dredd” miniseries, to drop online in October for the low, low price of absolutely free. Claiming he doesn’t “give a fuck” about money and just cares about the franchise, the news was greeted with both excitement some question marks from fans. Would Karl Urban return? What shape would the miniseries take? Well, these answers have arrived, and it’s probably not what you expected and/or hoped for.
EW has the first-look photos, and they reveal that the property is back as “Dredd: Superfiend,” an animated take on the Dark Judges storyline. Frankly, the animation looks kinda cheap, but since I haven’t read the comics, maybe this look is faithful. Still, there’s something distinctly flat and not all that inspiring here, and the poster doesn’t help either, looking fan made in all the worst possible ways. But hey, maybe in motion this is a lot better than it appears.
No word yet on a launch date for ‘Superfiend,’ but keep your eye online. Check out the pics below.
