After 13 long years, Megamind is finally back! Peacock has just revealed that the supervillain will star in a new film and a new TV series, both of which will be released on March 1.
Megamind vs. The Doom Syndicate The new film is the first in the series since Megamind: The Button of Doom, which was released on DVD/Blu-Ray of the original film. It is said to pick up from where the first film left off and will conveniently lead into the new TV series. Megamind Rules! however, is an eight-episode TV series that follows Megamind in his quest to become the first superhero influencer.
The synopsis for The Doom Syndicate reads as follows: “Megamind’s former villain team, The Doom Syndicate, is back. Our newly crowned blue hero must now keep the evil skin up until he can rally his friends (Roxanne, Ol’ Chum and Keiko) to stop his former evil teammates from sending Metro City to the moon.”
Will Ferrell is not back in the role of Megamind, but has instead left it to Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and DuckTales). Both the film and the TV series also have Adam Lambert, Scott Adsit, Josh Brener and Tony Hale in the cast.
