Picture Trivia
          The fictional character Judge Dredd was conceptualized by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezguerra. Dredd is an American law enforcement officer in the future that has the authority to arrest, judge and impose the death penalty to the convicted. In the 1995 film Judge Dredd, it was Silvester Stallone who portrayed the character. The role, however, was first offered to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who refused it because in the film the character’s face was most of the time covered.
