Not even all the skills of Batman are a match for the silliness of Honest Trailers.
In the latest episode of the popular YouTube series, Honest Trailers lampoons the original Incredibles movie in their usual style, pointing out how once again Pixar tugs at our heartstrings, and some of the more questionable elements of the movie (most notably how the people Mr. Incredible was working for had an obvious villain liar, due to it being located in a volcano), and eventually, slam the Cowled Crimefighter during the scene where Bob (Craig T. Nelson) throws his boss through a series of walls, proclaiming:
“Hey, heroes don’t do that! Unless you’re Batman, Batman totally does that.”
And it’s not just the Masked Manhunter the episode jokes about, as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the Fantastic Four, and Rorschach are also ripe for the ribbing, especially the FF and their multiple attempts to get a film franchise going, but failing big time. But this being a good-natured comedy series, all the jokes are in good fun, and no harm has been meant.
Incredibles 2 is now playing in theaters. The film’s synopsis can be found below.
“In The Incredibles 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.”
The film features the voice talents of Holly Hunter as Helen Parr/Elastigirl, Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible, Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr, Huck Milner as Dashiell “Dash” Robert Parr, Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone, Brad Bird as Edna Mode, Bob Odenkirk as Winston Deavor, Catherine Keener as Evelyn Deavor, Sophia Bush as Voy, Jonathan Banks as Rick Dicker, Isabella Rosellini as The Ambassador and John Ratzenberger as The Underminer.
What To Expect From Geoff Johns’ ‘Green Lantern Corps’
After exiting his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns revealed that he will be writing the script for the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. The writer, who reintroduced Hal Jordan to the DC Universe and guided him forward for years, is the perfect choice to bring this franchise back to the big screen. No one has a better understanding of Hal Jordan as a character and what it takes to create an emotionally driven, explosive Green Lantern story.
The character may have already failed once at the box office, but that doesn’t mean Green Lantern doesn’t have potential to succeed on the big screen. So far, the DC Extended Universe has been very Earth-focused, and introducing the Green Lanterns is a perfect way to pivot to the stars. Full of cool characters and interesting ideas, the Green Lantern Corps may just be what the DC Extended Universe needs to kick things into gear.
