What is the best superhero movie ever made? WRONG!!! The answer is The Incredibles. It's pretty much the Fantastic Four with all the suck drained out. In my opinion, The Incredibles is one of those rare "perfect movies," where everything in it works so well that you really can't point out a flaw.
And I suppose that's why, since the second the credits started rolling on the premiere screening of the movie back in 2004, people have been begging for a sequel. That's also been the reason why writer/director Brad Bird has always said "no," because you can't make something that's perfect even more perfect. You only stand to make something inferior. And Bird has stood strong with that stance for years. But in an investor meeting this week, Disney head Bob Iger announced Bird is working on an Incredibles sequel.
Now, I'm not saying that The Incredibles 2 is going to be bad. It could be a good movie. It could be as good as Toy Story 2. Then again, it could be Cars 2.
Is it really worth the risk? Well, to investors the answer is certainly "yes," but I'm staying firmly in the "no" category.
Then again, I'll be one of the first in line to see Incredibles 2 when it inevitably hits theaters.
