Henchmen: Ill Suited

The lives of super-villains have been explored in animated films such as The Incredibles, Despicable Me, and MegaMind. Now Adam McKay, Will Ferrell (who voiced MegaMind), and their company Gary Sanchez are guiding the feature adaptation of a short film set in a city of super-villains. Henchmen will expand and revamp the story from the Bron Studios short Henchmen: Ill Suited, which premieres this week at SIGGRAPH 2014.

In the short, a janitor at a museum of villainy accidentally activates the armor of a noted bad guy, and then nearly lays waste to the entire place. The film will keep some of that concept, but expand it significantly. Watch Henchmen: Ill Suited below! Read More »
