If you happen to be a Cosmic Book News original, you know that I got my start by petitioning Marvel for the return of Wendell Vaughn as Quasar.
I was part of a group that sent the Hallowed Hallways of Marvel the “Bring Back Wendell” Cake as well as t-shirts and petitions.
I like to think Marvel responded favorably by bringing back Wendell Vaughn as Quasar in the pages of Nova (Richard Rider, that is).
So it seems at least that it’s possible to bring back your favorite character with enough rabid enthusiasm, and now fans are at it again, this time for Dredd 2.
Dredd, which starred Karl Urban, absolutely bombed at the box office, but it was received favorably by fans and critics alike.
To add to that, the screenwriter behind the movie didn’t rule out a Dredd 2, and Karl Urban recently stated home video sales sold well, with over 600,000.
A Facebook fan page has also been launched with well over 30,000 supporting the Dredd sequel.
