Cartoon Network has been hyping the return of Darth Maul like crazy. He finally appeared in last week’s episode, and wha d’ya know, he’s crazy! Yup, while in isolation for years after somehow surviving his bisection at the end of Episode I, Maul has gone absolutely bonkers. When he was found by his brother, Savage Opress, the Sith was but a shell of his former self. And arachnid, for some reason, as he was sporting a spider-like lower half. Needless to say, it wasn’t what fans had imagined for the mighty Maul’s return.
Well, if you’re looking to see a Darth Maul returned to his former glory then you must tune in this week for the season finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It’s all been leading to this, Darth Maul versus Obi-Wan, ROUND 2!
Check out an exclusive, and regrettably un-embeddable, clip at Entertainment Weekly.
Have you got chills? I sure do, this fight looks intense! And this is the Maul I was expecting, less deranged spider and more rage-filled ass-kicker. Who you got in this showdown? Maul or Obi-Wan? EW is actually holding a poll right now if you want to vote. But please, sound off in the comments with your pick.
Me? I really, really, really want to root for Maul because the guy’s got everything stacked against him. He’s supposed to be dead, he’s got no legs and he’s mad as hell, in more ways than one. But, I’m a lifelong Kenobi fangirl, and I’ve got to give it the Jedi. Besides, we know Obi-Wan will be in the later flicks, meaning if somebody’s gonna die here, it’s Maul. Again.
Maybe this time he’ll only lose his arms. Then he can come back again and tell us all how it’s only a flesh wound.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars airs this Friday at 8pm on Cartoon Network. And stay tuned, Nerd Bastards will be featuring an interview with the voice of Darth Maul, Sam Witwer very soon!
