In the two years since the release of Dredd, the bloodsoaked dystopic action has developed a significant cult following, buoyed by the possibility/hope that the film might spawn a sequel that dives deeper into the mythology of 2000 AD, the British comic that spawned it. You want a sequel! We want a sequel! Karl Urban wants a sequel!

Titled “Superfiend,” the series is intended as a kind of sequel to Dredd, although it’s technically a part of Shankar’s “Bootleg Universe” series—a line of unofficial productions that also spawned “Dirty Laundry” and “Truth in Journalism,” riffs on the Punisher and Venom characters.

And here’s the poster for the series, which will be released later this month:
