IGN released an image today that teases a sequel to the 2012 Dredd 3D film, only it seems to be coming in comic book form.
The Dredd 3D film was a delight for fans of the comics and action films alike. Over at The Reel Bits, we said that it was a “satisfying union of comic book and cinematic flair…a film that knows its audience and fulfils its promise and purpose, gleefully kicking down the door and leaving doubters in a bloody pulp”. Proving that they still know their audience, 2000 AD look to be bringing us the next chapter in that saga via the medium that inspired it.
We know nothing beyond it being a September release date, and while this may not be quite what fans meant when they wanted a sequel, perhaps it brings us one step closer to that goal.
If you like Judge Dredd, then look out for our podcast scheduled for the week beginning 5 May 2013, where we will be looking at Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Saga as part of our book club!
