It's kind of a big deal: Megamind VS The Doom Syndicate and Megamind Rules arrive on Peacock March 1.

By Adam Pockross

It ain’t easy changing lanes from supervillain to superhero, but that’s just what Megamind did back in the hit 2010 film (now streaming on Peacock!) starring Will Ferrell as the titular megalomaniac. Now, thanks to the magicians at DreamWorks Animation, we’re going to get to see what happens next, as a new Megamind movie and TV series are in the works at Peacock

As you can see in the new trailer for the film below, Megamind vs. The Doom Syndicate, which also reveals the new TV series, Megamind Rules!, this is kind of a big deal. Indeed, we’re all very lucky to have the supervillain… er, superhero back in blue.

Picking up mere moments after the events of the 2010 film, Megamind’s former villain team, The Doom Syndicate, returns to Metro City with a nefarious plan to launch the entire city to the Moon, as evil syndicates are prone to do. To thwart the plan, Megamind must keep up his evil pretenses while assembling his own heroic team of Roxanne, Ol’ Chum, and Keiko to save the day.
