I would like for Roxanne and Megamind to dance together. I would like for them to wear fancy clothes, and I would like for them to dance. Twirls, dips, and lifts should definitely be involved. We know from the movie that Megamind can definitely lift her without trouble. I would like for this to happen, please.
I would like for Minion to have some time off as well, possibly while they are dancing. I would like for him to be eating his favorite snacks, swimming in his own private pool (it’s under the Evil Lair; it’s absolutely huge , and it is awesome), and I would also like for him to listen to his music (the kind Megamind dislikes) and watch some of his favorite shows.
I would like for Metro Man to get a very strong talking to about responsibilities and caring about the welfare of others and how your actions or inaction can affect other people. I would also like for him to learn about setting boundaries, setting limits, and knowing that it’s okay to say no to people. I think that he has it in his head that he has to help everyone all of the time and be on the job and camera-ready and willing to put the welfare of others above his own All The Time… or else he might as well quit and not do anything or help anyone at all. Neither of these attitudes are good or healthy, and I would like for Metro Man to learn some balance.
I would like for Bernard to have a good day. I would like for him to get out of the Evil Lair, and be okay. I would like for him to have just compensation for the whole kidnapping-and-identity-theft thing (something along the lines of money, replacement for housing and property that may have been seized in his absence, etc.), and I would like for him to write a very popular and lucrative book having to do with Megamind, with reference to the whole kidnapping-and-identity-theft thing, because it’s only fair.
I would like for there to be dancing with Megamind and Roxanne. I would also like for them to go bike-riding, and for them to go on picnics together with him wearing his real face, and I would like for other people to be okay with that. I would like for there to be picnics. I would like for them to go to the Fair together, as themselves, and for him to win her many prizes because he has very good aim, and because he can recognize and compensate for how the games are rigged. I would like for them to eat cotton-candy and corn-dogs. I would like for Megamind and Roxanne to go on the rides together, and cling to eachother– not because they are scared but because they like one another.
I would very much like for everyone to just live happily ever after together already. Please? Pretty Please? Just give them a happy ending. That’s all I ask.
So Shepherd is a psychopath, but she’s also pretty scarily smart. In the preview, we see the SIOC team staring at a monitor, watching a missile trajectory. And we see Shepherd in an ambulance loaded with nuclear weapons. The thing about missiles is… they’re fast but not instantaneous. The second a missile launches, the military is tracking it on radar and, if they can’t determine who launched it or what it’s purpose was, immediately scrambling planes to shoot it down. So it may or may not reach its target and may or may not have the effect that you desire. And in the meantime, ground forces are mobilizing to safeguard all the people Shepherd wants to get.
So the missile is primarily a distraction. Get everyone looking up at the sky while she drives up in ambulance– one vehicle that no one will ever question– right into the heart of D.C. And when all of the government is assembled to “deal with” this threat… that’s when she takes them all out. Anyone who isn’t killed in the immediate blast will die of radiation poisoning. Everyone, that is, except for the COGS, tucked safely away in their little bunker, waiting for their turn to rise up and lead the show.
It’s simple and brilliant. And also really really terrifying.
