From what Officer 1BDI reports, in  "Bender's Big Score", it is revealed that Fry has a green time sphere located on his butt. It's likely the time sphere on Fry will have a major role in the fourth film, "Into the Wild Green Yonder", from the title.

During the comic con panel, it was explicitly stated that it was a tattoo on Fry's butt that was a key plot point for the time travel.

I'm sure we saw Fry's butt when he was in the naked conga line in Time Keeps On Slippin', I guess he must have gotten it since then...

Where was the time sphere located on his butt? Left or right butt cheek? It could have not been shown because of the camera angle in that scene. Speaking of his butt, I know that the scene in "Time Keeps on Slipping" is the only time where we see his bare butt. I know this... well, a reason you'll probably find out soon enough (check YouTube sometime this year for a Futurama video made by a sick pervert). But, anyways, was the time sphere's location similar to how Homer has the holy Stonecutter's birthmark on his butt? And also, are you sure it is a tattoo he got? It could be a recently discovered birthmark, just like Homer's.

Talking about Fry and the time sphere, has anyone paid much attention to Fry and the relation of time to him? I know this was briefly mentioned in the second official shippers' thread on either the third or fourth page, when they were comparing Fry and Leela to the gods. Fry's life has been mended though time travel. Besides the fact that he did the nasty in the past-y, he also caused his 1,000-year fate. This upcoming movie and the time sphere is making his life and purpose very involved with time. So, I have a theory. We know that the Nibblonians call him the "Mighty One". One reason he is called the "Mighty One" is because he does not produce the Delta Brain Wave. Fry is called "The Mighty One" in "The Why of Fry", but is that all he is known for besides "The Single Most Important Person in the Universe" and "The Poop Scooper of Lord Nibbler"? He could be a representative of time. Leela, who is a candidate for being "The Other", could be the representative of space, though this is a bit far-fetched because she doesn't seem to have much of an importance with location other than piloting the Planet Express Ship across the universe. So, the two would be time and space. The duo of "The Mighty One" and "The Other" might also have the titles of "Father Time" and "Mother Earth", though even I, myself, think that my own theory of that would be pretty stupid and too bland. Hey, it's still possible, and the titles of mother and father do leave open the possibility of a child of the two having some importance.

Left side; you couldn't see it when Fry was lying on the table, and we kept seeing him from the right.

"Mother Earth" as Leela sounds like a bit of a stretch, to be honest, but Fry as "Father Time" or the Futurama equivallent actually sounds kind of neat.

Leela being related to space would make more sense, then they can have little space-time continuum babies. Personally, I think the premise of the show started with Fry and time travel and it's just gone from there.

Hey, that was me!
I was suggesting Fry as The Horned God, who is consort to the Goddess or Earth Mother, Leela. I had arguments to back that up, but I forgot...

I do like your idea of Fry as a Time Lord though. Mwuhaha. He just needs a floppy hat and a long scarf.

Otis P Jivefunk, sorry for late reply (no i-net for me at the weekends). What I meant is concern regarding F-rama possible move towards South Park-ish style with more butt and such jokes. Pls understand me right, i'm a very big fan of F-rama and i quite like South Park, but hearing so much of Fry's butt reminds me a bit of Eric Cartman's eh... adventures. Plus alien nudists, beast with bln. backs etc...
I just thought maybe there was some research before the new series made, showing that average F-rama fan usually also likes S.P., (maybe even Beavis & Butthead too   smile) so guys, let's do it more below the belt line...

And i'm joining to all the praises to brave officer 1BD1 and Just Nibblin', providing us with priceless info from the F-rama's hottest spot of this summer. Guys, may i translate your coverage for Russian audience? We're soooo hungry for any news here...

I don't think the Futurama crew could be made to make the show more like South Park any more than they could be made to make the show more like the Simpsons. I think you'll see something closer to what they wanted to do in the first place. If there is more adult natured content it will probably be what they think should be in it. Not some contrivance the network wants them to put in.

Let's see, The Other... who has the most in common with Fry? Like someone who is also a total looser that comes from the 20th Century. No it can't be!

Considering why Fry was recruited to fight the Brain Spawn being selected as "The Other" may not be any more flattering - or have anything to do with marriage, babies and all that. Leela's role in fighting the Brain Spawn was minimal at best, other than being Nibbler's housekeeper.

Leela's actions can be pivotal (perhaps Fry will be motivated to do something to about her marriage) but haven't been a direct action, like writing a lousey story or triggering a quantum-interface bomb.

I do keep that in mind. It's constructive to look at both sides of the argument.

In "The Why of Fry", Nibbler specifically mentions to Fry that his species cannot travel through time, and that was 1,000 years before he became Leela's pet and "formally" met Fry. Unless he knows that "The Other" has a close bond with "The Mighty One", he may have just gave Fry new hope so then Fry would be sent to the future to stop the Brain Spawn, blow up the Infosphere, and perform whatever crazy task(s) that lies ahead in the upcoming movies. Don't get me wrong, but there is a good chance that there is somebody in the universe that will play the role of "The Other". Leela seems to be the most involved with the Nibblonians' battle against evil, as insignificant as her role may be, so she is the number one candidate for the title at present time. As far as we know, Nibbler could have made up the title of "The Other" off the top of his head. And he can get away with that "little" lie too, on account of Fry has no memory of the conversation at all.

Contradicting these negative thoughts is at the end of their epic mission, when Nibbler gives Fry the street alley daisy. He did say that he intends on helping the couple's relationship, but he didn't tell Fry what to do with the flower. Looking optimistically, he probably assumed that Fry, after having his memory blinked, would give the daisy to Leela, like he promised 1,000 years ago.

Hopefully at least one of the four movies will give us more information on "The Other".

I heard about the titles for the DVDs on the IMDB.  It's really going to happen!  I, myself hope in one of these movies, it will reveal why Leela is "The Other".   When the movies come, when can we expect to see some commercials for them?

The guy couldn't because somebody working at Comic Con was watching his row at the time. He knew if he even took out a camera, he would be busted.

Edit:
I think Ratchetman is the poster of the videos in the Futurama Movie News Thread. I'm sure he is saving the trailer for last, for suspense. I want to see it SO FREAKKIN' BAD.

Stephen Hawking exists in the past so they must go back to meet him, I doubt he'll be in the future as a head in the jar because then he wouldn't have his speaking computer and couldn't talk, so my concusion is that The Beast With A Billion Backs involves time travel to the past as well...

Who says he can't have his voice box? Those jars hold all sorts of contraptions (those little arms in WNFHGB, jets in COTH, etc). He could equally have his head in a jar mounted on his old wheelchair (like Nixon's jar on a robot body in AHITP) or something completely new.

Respected co-futuramers! i just don't get it - a week after the ComicCon and there's only a less-than-minute small video and no comic avaliable anywhere... This is really surprising considering how many people were there... Maybe someone, who knows better could correct me and even eh... show the way to where are these priceles treasures located?

And, still being under influence of CC news just wanted to say many a thnx to PEEL & peelettes (sp?) & peelers as F-rama would most probably never come back if it were not for you guys here. As you are the ones, Rich Moore said about in recent CHUD.com interview:

Q: Now that The Simpsons have been re-validated, and Futurama has been revived due to... I guess, aggressive interest from a select audience--

Moore: The fans on the internet are really the ones who got the show back. There are so many fan sites. They're great. The fans are great. I know there were letter writing campaigns, email campaigns, sending anchovies to Fox... and I really think it made Fox take another look at a property that died before its time.

I’m a bit surprised, more disappointed really that there is still 4 mins of trailer not posted on the internet yet. Some guy over at No Homers said he would post it a few days ago, but now he seems to have gone missing…

Speaking of covers, would anyone else think it would be a clool idea to have the 4 covers of the Futurama movies make up one big image when put together side by side? Much like the DVD boxsets which make up bigger images. I reckon that would be aweome...

I'm also disappointed. The trailer, or even the mini-comic is nowhere to be found (well, except for ebay -some guy's selling his comic there). A reporter for tvsquad promised to post the comic, but either she hasn't got home yet, or she's just had second thoughts after seeing some of the comments XD

Aww, I love those covers.  smile

Maybe no one got the whole trailer or figured that a high quality version would be released by the studio. I think lots of us thought an "genuine" version for the Web was a major intent of making the trailer for the show. There may be full versions out there but those who have them figure it won't be worth the hassle of posting it only to have the "real" trailer posted a couple of hours later. It's beginning to look like there was no intention of releasing the "real" trailer on the Web by the studio. Which is sort like... Huh?

That or they're afraid folks will want another trailer 5 minutes after they've seen the first. Like Zoidberg eating anchovies.

I've a question regarding one of the movies.

According to Maurice LaMarche [link], the title of the 2nd movie will be:
The Beast With A Billion Backs

but according to Rich Moore [link], the title is:
The Beast With A Million Backs

The question, Millon or Billon?

I'm pretty sure it's "A Beast with a Billion Backs". If it was "a Million", then it wouldn't match the expression of "A Beast with Billion Bucks" as well compared to the former.

Now, back to the speculation-part of this thread!

I was looking at one of the comic pages that JustNibblin' posted, and I noticed a particular detail about it. If you look on the panel where Fry questions what is in for them for their fourth adventure, Bender looks upset (the eyes tell all). Is this foreshadowing something? I think that the at the beginning of their chain of epic adventures with the evil alien nudists, Bender will be pumped up that he gets to do/have/be what he has always dreamed of doing/having/being (always wanted to go on a stealing spree of, always wanted to have luxurious items, always wanted to be a royal knight). But, by every passing adventure, he realizes what he is doing isn't making him any more happy, or rather dreary, and is upsetting himself for letting himself do these things. From the looks of "Bender's Game" according to the comic, Bender appears to be ashamed of himself that he doesn't even want to be around the rest of the crew anymore. I think the last movie, almost everybody in the Futurama universe will loathe him, with the exception of the internet nudist scammers, who are pushing him to do what he is doing. Though, the conclusion for that prediction would be that Bender stops helping the internet nudist scammers with their evil deeds and everything returns to a better state than they were before (friendships are repaired, the scammers are stopped before things go out of hand, and possibly romantic relationships are acknowledged).

Hm, I hadn't even thought of it being a continuous plot through all four movies. However, the panel for Bender's Game looks like he's leaving because Leela wants to kill him as much as his own shame. It'd be interesting to see Bender actually be dealt consequences for his actions, though.

You just got to ask: Why would Leela want to kill him? In that little panel, Leela is angry (mostly likely over Bender), Fry has a sinister grin on his face (most likely over Bender), and, well, the professor, he seems pretty wise-looking and content (most likely over Bender). Bender's back is turned on them, so it's not like he's faking his emotions or anything. This time he must be truly ashamed over something he has done (under the influence of the internet nudist scammers).

Taking look at the one-panel summary of "A Beast with a Billion Backs", if Bender's dressed like he could be sitting in the comfort of his posh manor, smoking a pipe next to the warmth of his fireplace and Fry looks like he has taken on more than what he bargained for, then it's possible Bender sold Fry out (could be literally, too). Just for the internet nudist scammers, he could have gotten Fry involved into their schemes by force or good ol' peer pressure.

We know that Fry is dressed up like the pope. Is it possible that the aliens could have replaced the reptilian space pope with a human being who might possess powers that we do not even know of? Thinking about Fry being pope, I recall two specific character dialog references to the pope. The first was in "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", during the scene where Amy's new car breaks down on Mercury. Fry asks Amy why she dresses as if she's doing her laundry, and Amy tells about how her parents want her to be more ladylike, and brings up that they want her to be as well-done like the pope. Fry and her then go on about how the pope must be nagged about how he dresses. The second reference was in some episode in the third season (it may be "I Dated a Robot" ). I think Fry asks some question with an obvious answer to the rest of them, and the Bender says "Is the space pope reptilian?!?" in response. When thinking about the first reference, they could have been foreshadowing the comments, responsibility, and pressure that Fry would have to deal with as pope. In the second reference, the universe would be shocked when a non-reptilian space pope is introduced, such as ordinary (as far as ordinary can be for him) Fry. Also, earlier in this paragraph, I noted that Fry may have some unrealized power. Thinking again about him being a time representative/father time figure, he might have the power to slow time (as presented in "Three Hundred Big Boys" ). However, this seems a bit too ridiculous to believe as Fry accessed this sudden speed surge through heavy amounts of caffeine intake. Hey, I just wanted to keep that theory's door open a bit.

I have noticed that Futurama has foreshadowed a lot of episodes, and I'm sure there is a lot more of these foreshadowing bits buried in the episodes. I should probably make a thread about the foreshadow possibilities I have came up with...

That would be incredibly interesting to see. I think the overall story arc is supposed to teach Bender to think about the consequences he will suffer before doing anything risky. I think that if a casual viewer watches all movies in order, at first glance, the viewer will look at all of the movies as "the thrilling adventures of everybody's favorite loud, proud, and outspoken robot". But, by the later movies, this will be changed as emotions of others and himself make Bender try to "tie himself down".

Frida, if you can deduce that much from one page of the ComicCon comic, I'd love to see what you come up with when you read the whole thing.  I've posted the whole thing via the "Movies News Thread".  There's a little trivia quiz you'll need to pass, though.  Somehow I think you'll have no trouble.   wink

I already solved the whole thing yesterday. It was fun, actually. Good job! You make all who want to see it in a very good quality have to show that they are willing to put their Futurama knowledge to the test.

I couldn't really get much of anything with the rest of the comic. I got a lot of insight with the two pages of the adventures foreseen by the fortune teller because if there was supposed to be something meaningful and canonical in the comic, it would be on those particular pages.
