After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life. Written by
There are numerous references to Superman in this film. These include: - The way Megamind's parents put him in a capsule to Earth just before his planet is destroyed - The love interest is a reporter - Hal's "space dad" is obviously modeled after Marlon Brando as Superman (1978)'s father in Richard Donner's film version - Almost all of Metroman's super powers are the same as Superman's - Megamind's pronunciation of Metro City has the same stress pattern as 'Metropolis' in Superman - Megamind's alter ego Bernard wears glasses like Clark Kent. - In the Metro Man Museum, there's a statue of Metro Man preparing to catch an airplane. This is a reference to John Byrne's 'Superman' comics, where Superman made his first appearance by catching a plane and saving Lois Lane. See more »
When Megamind, disguised as Bernard, is in the library with Roxanne, the book he reads before the next scene is titled 'Megamind Unmasked'. The back of the book is actually a summary of a different book, 'The Happiest Me I Can Be' which is a book not seen until later into the movie. See more »
Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of my dreams and got my butt kicked pretty good. Still, things could be a lot worse. Oh, that's right... I'm falling to my death. Guess they can't. How did it all come to this? Well, my end starts at the beginning... The very beginning!
