Oh come on, do you honestly thing Fry would let Leela marry Sean, after everything Leela said about how Sean treated her, you think Fry would let Leela consider marrying Sean?

Fry interfering with Leela's marrying anyone seems a mite similar to "ABBf2," so I kind'a doubt they'll do it again.

Leela would have the weding, Fry would crash it and spill out his feelings for her.  Leela would either think that it was the sweetest thing she'd ever heard and return the feelings, or get very mad at him for crashing the wedding and reject.  I would predict some combination of the two possibilities that would leave them as friends.
Of course, that's unlikely to happen, as Sean is he ex-boyfriend. 

Leela might be getting married to Zapp Brannigan!  *is shot*

You know, I would have said the same thing as you had I not seen "The Cyber House Rules" episode.  I was very surprised that, after only a little jealous argument he had with Leela about Adlai, Fry seemed perfectly non chalant about her moving in with him later and thinking of having children (and coming to his apartment to adopt one!)  Nothing!  He let Leela do what she wanted regardless of his feelings.

Perhaps she's marrying someone we've never seen in the series before? It could easily be explained in a flashback to events after the last episode, Devil's Hands (yes, I shortened to title, deal with it fools!).   wink I'd love to see what Sean looks like.....so if I saw a guy that looked like him on the street, I'd punch him in the face, followed by some kicking of the crotch area. (Ok, not really, but I might yell something...)

Edit: After re-reading this page, if Leela marries Zapp, I swear....I'll go and slap all the writers myself. Zapp would have had to drugged her for that one.

No he didn't. Who do you think called the police?

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks Fry was the one who tipped off the cops.

Although you'd think that would have gotten him out of being charged....

He was being charged on one count of being a taddle-tale. That's a federal crime in the future, and all citizens are urged to report it.

Hmmm... I must be out of it. I thought that the Imperial Dragon Restaurant was the one who called the police on Bender and his ranch of human children. The restaurant worker on the phone was the only one who knew about the livestock up for grabs, next to the actual owner of the dozen who escaped a slaughter and Fry. They could have been pissed that they didn't get what the robot called to sell and, well, it's the real world and the employee contacted the police.

Fry calling the police sounds much more entertaining, though. Even a bit out of character compared to "Insane in the Mainframe", though he didn't rat on Roberto because his life was on the line.

They said they'd 'address' the relationship.
Knowing the show, one would assume something would happen to throw the happy union off-kilter.

In the new trailer, Fry appears happy and relieved to return to the past, he even says "home".  Not a large leap in logic to conclude that yet another obstacle has fallen in front of the ship's course, whether Leela marrying someone else, or an interrupted wedding, I'll leave you to argue.

Well, in the interview SoylentOrange posted with Rich Moore, he says it's "got the Fry and Leela relationship." Far from unambiguous, but also more positive than it being "addressed." I agree that something would have to go wrong or be wrong to start with though, happy relationships just don't make good entertainment.

From the Fox Store blurb about the new movie:

Meanwhile, Leela finds true love, a beloved crew member suffers an embarrassing decapitation, and Fry learns deep secrets about his destiny and his buttocks.

Notice how Leela finds true love and Fry's destiny are on opposite ends of the sentence.    cry I know that sentiment goes against what I just posted, but it's how I feel anyway. Hopefully this is an Alkazar/Adlai type thing. I take back everything I said earlier to the contrary of Fry and Leela belonging together in the show. Damn it Leela, get your act together!

Actually, it could be that changes Bender makes in the past alters the future, causing Leela to be getting married to Zapp Brannigan or something, but through a series of events Bender's damage is undone and everything's back to ambiguously romantic involvement between Fry and Leela.

Or, or, OR it could be stemming from Fry sending himself back to the year 2000, causing an It's a Wonderful Life scenario where we see how the future would be without him or something.

I'm going back to bed now.

On FoxStore.com:
As Xmas 3007 approaches, the “Futurama” crew must fight to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers.

When the evil naked aliens launch a cyber-attack on Planet Express, they make a shocking discovery: the secret of time travel, mysteriously tattooed on Fry's buttocks. Using their devious nudist software to control Bender, they repeatedly send the beer-fueled robot back in time to loot Earth of its greatest treasures. Bender's rampage through history has shocking repercussions when he encounters Al Gore (guest-starring as himself) during the 2000 Presidential recount. Meanwhile, Leela finds true love, a beloved crew member suffers an embarrassing decapitation, and Fry learns deep secrets about his destiny and his buttocks.

Al Gore, Coolio and Sarah Silverman guest star.

From the official summary, it doesn't sound as if Bender went to the future to see Leela's wedding, nor does it sound like she's marrying Fry. However, knowing how weddings usually go in the televised world and how the other adventures were described in the comic book, Leela will probably stay a lonely, loveless cyclops. My money's on Fry and/or the nudist internet scammers for being behind the sudden discontinuation(?) of the ceremony.

With what the last final episode of years past portrayed, I just can't see Leela being with anyone else. Leela does find true love after dhaipt with yours truly.... while Fry at the same time learns secrets about his destiny. If the producers were to make it anyone else besides Fry, then go ahead and toss dhaipt right out the window.  mad

I like the time altering ideas much better. Your second suggestion doesn't seem very plausible looking at the comic book's short one panel foresight of "Bender's Big Score". If Fry never came into the future, then how would he be in that scene, looking like he's going to a wedding or some special event? However, your second suggestion did back me up on why Leela's parents would be watching from a vent (Leela wouldn't have met them because Fry wasn't there to find out the secret of her past).

For some deranged reason, I thought that Leela's so-called "true love" was a fraud, probably on the internet nudist scammers' side.  no no

Your first suggestion sounds so much better than mine.

Touche. I don't think it would even be temporally possible, given that he'd have to be in the future until when he goes back in time. Stupid midnight dream ideas. However, it also seems like she's met her parents due to Morris's comments about trying to hook her up with the fly mutant, disregarding how incredibly out of character that would be for someone who gave up their daughter to get her out of the sewers. Maybe something Bender does makes Leela not be abandoned by her parents and someone on the surface besides Fry is willing to marry her anyway? Probably not the last part, but who knows.   hmpf

I'm not really sure if this is the right thread to put this in. Does Fry's relationship with Seymour count as shippy?  Probably not... Oh well.  Anyway, while I was searching google for a bootleg version of the comic con movie trailer I accidentally came upon this.  Thought you might like to see.

'Shippy' refers to 'Ship', which is a shortening of relationship. Although it's almost exclusively used in relation to romance, you could buck the trend a little and have it apply to friendships and other kinds of relationships.
Does muddy the water somewhat though...

DID YOU KNOW?
The word 'shippy' was originally coined on X-Files forums in the mid 90s to describe romantic implications between FBI Agents Mulder and Scully.
Yours truly was a member of those forums at the time - Yay! I'm a part of history.
