King of the nerds Patton Oswalt has an upcoming guest spot on an episode of “Parks and Recreation” where he plays a Pawnee citizen who filibusters a city council meeting in order to hold up a piece of legislation.

How will Tony Stark and Thanos play into the continuation of the “Star Wars” saga? You’ll have to click past the jump to find out.
