Will Ferrell really likes to get into character and his latest film Megamind will have him taking a walk on the dark side. The actor appeared alongside co-stars Tina Fey and Jonah Hill at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con dressed from head to toe as his animated character. He appeared in blue makeup and sported some strange head-gear all in the name of promotion. Check out the video of the panel below…

In the film, Megamind has defeated Metro Man and has found himself bored and without purpose. He tries to create another foe in the form of Titan, a young hero in training voiced by Hill. The film also stars Fey as the female lead (the unconventional damsel in distress), a news reporter who’s keeping track of the hero-villain antics.

The film itself might not look that interesting but Ferrell’s on stage antics are fun to watch. If only that could spill over into the actual movie! The Megamind panel took place first thing Thursday morning at Comic-Con and was followed by the Tron Legacy panel, so it kicked off a semi-decent day of presentations.

Megamind opens in theaters everywhere on November 5th and is directed by Tom McGrath.
