The Incredibles is based on a script by Brad Bird, who also directed the movie. Bird originally developed it for Warner Bros but, after Warner shut down its animation division, Bird moved to Pixar Animation Studios at Walt Disney Pictures and took the story with him. However, there are several references to the celebrated graphic novel "Watchmen," which possibly Bird took as a base to write.

It's a reference to a scene in Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995) where Samuel L. Jackson's character is in the subway attempting to answer a pay phone while at gunpoint from a rookie cop.

If you like Pixar's animation in The Incredibles, you'll certainly want to see some of the other Pixar productions, including Toy Story (1995) and its sequels—Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010)—and perhaps A Bug's Life (1998), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Finding Nemo (2003), (2004), Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011), Ratatouille (2007), WALL·E (2008), Up (2009), Brave (2012), Monsters University (2013) and Finding Dory (2016). An exhaustive filmography of the studio can be found here.

"Obviously, Buddy is older than Mr. Incredibles other children, as the prologue is set 15 years prior to their birth and just before Mr. Incredibles marrying Elastigirl. When Mr. Incredible and Buddy (Syndromes name as a child) first meet inside the formers superhero car, there seems to be a striking resemblance. Buddy naming his unofficial alterego IncrediBoy already suggests a role-model connection between the two, but the fact that they look like each other may argue there is a hidden father-son relationship that the narrative has kept as subtext."
