Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

Will Ferrell as MegamindThe first Hall H panel of the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con was for DreamWorks’ animated feature MegaMind.

HitFix’s Drew McWeeney introduced Will Ferrell, who came out festooned in blue facepaint with a huge dome helmet as the titular character. He introduced Tina Fey (who came out uncostumed) and they introduced Jonah Hill and the director, Tom McGrath. Brad Pitt made a non-appearance as a cardboard standee.

Check out the images from the panel here below.

They played five minutes of the film in Real 3D, which featured Ferrell’s MegaMind character, a villain whose mission is to defeat his nemesis, MetroMan, a hero voiced by Brad Pitt. The twist occurs when he actually does defeat MetroMan and has to figure out what to do next, now that the city is his.

This is Ferrell’s second bad guy role since Mugatu in Zoolander; he said he appreciated the dual nature of playing a villain who’s also the protagonist.

Q&A featured a guy who ripped off his shirt to reveal the words “Mega Mind” scrawled on his chest, and Comic-Con regular Bob Stencil, who asked if blue characters (such as MegaMind, Avatar’s Na’Vi, and the Smurfs) are a trend in Hollywood to stay. One attendee asked what the actors’ most memorable acting moments were: Fey’s moment was when she got Carrie Fisher to say “Help me Liz lemon, you’re my only hope,” on 30 Rock. Jonah Hill announced (jokingly) that he was officially playing The Hulk in Marvel’s Avengers movie.
