Patton Oswalt Filibusters Plot For “Star Wars: Episode VII” & “The Avengers” Tie-In Movie On “Parks & Rec”

After turning in one of the most emotionally charged reactions to the Boston Marathon Bombings on Facebook and appearing as The Penguin in College Humor’s parody of Christopher Nolan’s Batman, Patton Oswalt name is back again. This time its for political reasons, but not for gun control or anything serious, it’s for something much more important. Appearing in an episode of Parks and Rec, Oswalt’s character will attempt a filibuster by pitching a plot for Star Wars Episode VII to the Pawnee City Council. Hit the jump to see the video.

Sadly this clip runs for 8 minutes, so it just doesn’t have any room for something that runs that long on a 22-minute long sitcom. Despite that, it is a hilarious clip of Oswalt’s character attempting to change the city council’s thoughts on changing outdated laws by filibustering a plot for Star Wars Episode VII, Boba Fett, The Avengers, and Brian Del Palma.

But as a man who claims to have spent all this time on the internet, you would think that he would know that a couple of the Marvel heroes he mentioned are different properties owned by different studios. But the fact that he ties in Clash of the Titans means he’s thought this through and he knows how to make this three-franchise tie-in work.

After listening to his pitch, it makes me think that screenwriter Michael Adrnt might want to let Oswalt himself, or at least the person who wrote this episode, write the script for Episode VII.
