Avert your eyes if you don’t want to know the fate of Brad Pitt’s character Metro Man in the new Dreamworks Animation movie Megamind.
In the first trailer, we learned that Megamind (Will Ferrell) and Metro Man (Brad Pitt) shared a common history with each other, both of them had the obligatory Superman origin story, you know…dying planet, only one rocket big enough to send a child across the galaxy to Earth, and so on, and so forth.
In today’s trailer we get to find out that Megamind, who has assumed the role of the supervillain in the story, finally succeeds in destroying his long time nemesis Metro Man and now stands unchalleneged in his dominance of Earth. I know people are poo-pooing it right now, but you have to keep in mind that these folks have no love for anything that isn’t Pixar related. For the most part, I’ve enjoyed nearly every Dreamworks Animation feature…even Shrek 3 (take that, you cynical movie critics).
Coming soon, expect a review of the comic that follows the movie Reign of Megamind that was available exclusively at DC’s booth at this year’s San Diego Comic-con.
