Details On Incredibles 2
For writer-director Brad Bird, he admitted that the proliferation of superhero films in recent years made it harder to tell an original story.
“On some level, it’s like going out to the football field and there’ve been way too many games on it, and there’s this dried dirt with a few sprigs of grass, and everything’s kind of clunky, and life doesn’t grow there anymore,” Bird said.
