Scott Pilgrim vs. The World stopped Michael Cera from giving up acting

Based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels of the same name, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World wasn’t a financial success – it grossed nearly $50 million at the worldwide box office, but it’s a major highlight in both the Filmography by Michael Cera and director Edgar Wright. The film, which features early appearances from today’s icons like Brie Larson, Kieran Culkin and Anna Kendrick, has gone on to become one of the most notable films of the 2010s.

While the film works largely for its invigorating and rich video game-esque imagery, much of the film relies on Cera’s awkward but equally confident performance as the title character. In the film, an anxious and self-doubting Scott Pilgrim battles Ramona’s (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-partners. For Wright, there was no better actor to play Pilgrim than Cera. “Michael was the only person I could think of for Scott Pilgrim,” Wright told Rotten Tomatoes in 2021. “Anyone who was more — and that sounds like some kind of criticism of Michael, but it isn’t — but anyone who was more obviously college-educated and macho, didn’t seem right for Scott Pilgrim.”

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World might have been overlooked at the time of its release, but its popularity has only increased in recent years. In fact, thanks to Netflix, the multimedia franchise will get the animated treatment. The best part? Cera will return as the voice of Scott Pilgrim alongside the rest of the original cast.
