A poster for the new animated flick, Megamind, starring the voices of Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Tina Fey, and Will Ferrell. From Madagascar director Tom McGrath, the movie is a satirical take on superheroes with Pitt as Metro Man, a goodiegoodie superhero and Farrell as the villain and title character, Megamind.
The Dreamworks Animated movie comes out in November. If you are going to the San Diego Comic Con International, the movie will be having a panel on Thursday July 22nd at 10am. On hand from the film will be Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill and Tom McGrath. They will be having a question and answer session along with showcasing all new footage from the film.
The film sounds like it can be a lot of fun. Originally, Robert Downey Jr was slated to appear as the Megamind (originally named “Master Mind”), but had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. I would have preferred him to Will Ferrell who doesn’t show nearly as much range as Downey. Brad Pitt is a nice addition as the steriotypical superhero. Jonah Hill is always a great addition also.
Are you looking forward to Megamind? Will it be a new Incredibles or will it be as awful as Monsters vs Aliens?
