So first DreamWorks takes Megamind out of its Facebook picture, and now I’ve just discovered that Young Justice has been cancelled. (Everybody else probably knew that already, but I am slow, and typically fall behind on news.) One of the people who worked on Young Justice claims…
I guess…. dreamworks just doesn’t WANT my money… 8\
No-one wants girls’ money because cooties I guess.
This is 2014… we have “cootie shots” now. If they aren’t vaccinated by now then they’re going to start loseing fans if they haven’t lost them already because of their inability to respect their fans.
There was another really good Tumblr breakdown of why lazy marketing fucks do this gendered thing as a lazy way of making boys want boy things and making girls so desperate to be noticed that they consume girl stuff by the truckload but I can’t find it. If I do, I’ll edit and add it.
OH MAN DON’T GET ME STARTED
The Megamind fandom is basically 99% women, genderqueer, or trans*, with less than 1% of cis-male following. Dreamworks knows it. Megamind sells to women. Women want more Megamind. Women are SCREAMING AT THEM for the last THREE YEARS for more Megamind. And what are we told? “Nobody wants Megamind stuff”. “Nobody liked it.” “It didn’t travel well internationally” (it was cancelled for Japan btw and half of the fandom has been from countries outside of the USA)— HORSE SHIT. Absolute three-year-old crusty horse shit. Especially when people from the inside have claimed that the movie was targeted to little boys (???) and they can’t make toys for it for them (?????). The movie has like 80s references that only people 20+ really grasp and not to mention deep Nice Guy villain stuff going on— it’s NOT about little boys.
It’s because the fandom is nearly entirely women. Adult women, actually. And apparently, we’re not a group worth selling to. To the point that Dreamworks goes WAY THE HELL OUT OF THEIR WAY to wipe his blue face from everything they have just to sweep his existence under the rug in hopes that people will forget about the movie. "Nobody liked it" is what they say. "Please stop liking it and forget about it" is what they actually mean.
I’m not sure which profile you found but it’s okay! You’re not dumb.
Waaay back in the day there were basically no OCs in the Megamind fandom. There were AU Megaminds but not OCs. Blue (MegaBlueLove) made Vice Versa, a clone of Megamind that had retained all of Megamind’s memories before the point of actually being cloned. He was basically a dark science-y test subject that put up with a lot of physical/emotional abuse by his creators, and was now with a lot of problems and slightly insane for very obvious reasons.
This character took off in the fandom and suddenly was getting TONS of fan art and fic and just damn. IMO Dreamworks should have just dumped a good chunk of cash in Blue’s lap and bought rights for him to use in a sequel or someshit, but that would require Dreamworks to know what they’re doing and what their fandoms actually want.
He’s essentially the “still evil Megamind” that was creepy-sexy without actually changing Megamind in canon, himself. Vice is a fucking awesome character, perfect design, and one of the best OCs I’ve ever seen in any fandom ever.
Remember that time Dreamworks made a movie with a horse that acted like a horse, didn’t talk except for the narration, was confused by humans, and was practically abused and starved for three days and didn’t trust humans for a long time?
Rember when Dreamworks made a movie about a villain who had only became a villain because everyone else ignored him and in the end he became a hero?
Remember when Dreamworks made a movie that had the scariest and most chilling scene ever with the Angel of Death and right before that had had the best song ever with the Plagues?
Remember when Dreamworks made a movie based on the story of Joseph, King of Dreams, and at the end the brothers that had sold him to slavery needed his help and even though he was still angry at him he learned to forgive them?
Remember all the amazing movies by Dreamworks like Sinbad, Rise of the Guardians, How to Train Your Dragon, and Croods?
Remember how Dreamworks almost always loses to Disney?
it just occurred to me and maybe I’m late on this but like
since Megamind defuses the hero pill thing from Tighten, it absorbed back into the gun right?? meaning this blue idiot could potentially use it again on a new person? Or have it stolen and used by like the Doom Syndicate? Aaaaaaa??
He does say “we only have one shot at this” but you know what, bullshit just spews from his mouth like a fuckin fountain so
[RUBS SOUL CALIBUR V ALL OVER BODY] I MISSED YOU BB EVEN IF YOU CAME TO ME WITH YOUR CASE CRACKED ALL TO FUCK
I can’t wait to re-make my Megamind fighter omg
If Jim still has his data I need to go to his place and write down the stats for all the armor and etc I put on the characters I made on his PS3 x_X And cry to myself because I have to play through it all to unlock tons of shit AGAIN sobsobsob
It was only easy because we were taking turns ;u;
But I want to fight as Megamind again that was awesome okay ;;
