To continue my recent Megamind rambling spate, I wonder a lot about Wayne and Roxanne’s friendship? We never really get to see it in the movie, but… apparently they were close enough for everyone to think they were dating?
I am kind of curious about Roxanne seeming a bit starstruck (his heart is like an ocean inside another ocean???) but not by him rescuing her. His “on stage” persona seems to annoy her just as much as Megamind’s does (she’s fond of them, these stupid aliens that somehow entered into her life, but still irritated). So what is she seeing that gets that reaction?
Megamind never talks to either of them “off stage” until he’s being Bernard, which might be the problem. I mean, the kidnappings are pretty clearly mostly about getting both of their attention, but he doesn’t really have a way to socialise with them.
(At what point did Wayne start thinking of Megs as his “little buddy”? Would Megs be less okay with that appellation when he’s not kind of in shock from finding Wayne alive?)
Roxanne and Megs seem to be the only ones that mourn personally, rather than for a distant hero, and Wayne does say they both deserve to know the truth when they catch him. As if that wouldn’t necessarily have applied to anyone else catching him.
(Also, Roxanne knew about the schoolhouse. Had he taken her there before?)
