Film Features Vegan Character

Veganism gives character superpowers.

To be released August 13, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World might poke fun at stereotypes, but that doesn’t mean that Todd Ingram, the rock star vegan whom Scott (played by Michael Cera) must defeat, portrays veganism in a negative light. The film is based on a series of graphic novels (one of which includes a recipe for vegan Shepherd’s Pie), and ‘veganity,’ as it is called in the film, is featured. “Todd isn’t necessarily the nicest promoter of the vegan lifestyle, but it speaks well of it to say that you get the power of telekinesis and superpowers because you’re more clear, you’re more healthy, all of those things,” said actor Brandon Routh, who plays Ingram.
