For adults and children alike, the Despicable Me 2 movie release date has caused a wave of excitement. Lucky for those who loved the hilarious first Despicable Me, Universal Pictures decided to follow up with a second film that continues the fun loving family story of the villainous mastermind Gru and his three adopted daughters Margo, Agnes and Edith. In Despicable Me 2, Gru and the girls are off to save the lovably stolen yellow minions.

To celebrate the anticipation for the Despicable Me 2 movie release, this collection of villainous deceptions pays tribute to ultimate lovable supervillian, Gru. Much like Gru's transition from a hated evil stock character to a lovable, fully fleshed good guy, many motion picture villains often end up winning the hearts of fans around the world. From Disney's Cruella Devil, Scar and Ursula to DC Comic's Joker, audiences quickly notice that, though evil, villains are people too who are simply misunderstood.
