Austin Powers just celebrated his 25th anniversary on May 2nd. Has it really been that long?
Myers was promoting his new Netflix comedy series The Pentaverate in an interview with Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show. But then, he also hinted at an Austin Powers 4 sequel. The Canadian comedian wasn’t even trying to be subtle.
In a truly evasive yet classic espionage move, Mike said: “I can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of such a project, should it exist or not exist. It was a non-confirmed confirmation confirmation.”
Ok, you can now proceed to scream incoherently. Apparently, the trilogy is going to be a tetralogy.
So, the hype begins
Pivoting from the more boring subjects, Jess Cagle and co-host Julia Cunningham asked Mike Myers about Myers’ next cinematic endeavor. More specifically, Jess and Julie questioned Mike Myers about whether an Austin Powers 4 film was a possibility.
Back in 2018, Myers told Access Online that he would love to do another Austin Powers film. Even Myers’ kid is a fan of the 25-years-old franchise; at the age of ten, he memorized the whole first film line for line. Jay Roach, Myers’ former director, has also indicated a desire to return for another picture.
Mike Myers is most known as the green ogre Shrek in Shrek, Wayne in Wayne’s World, and, of course, the international spy Austin Powers.
The super talented Mike Myers not only played Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, but he also wrote and directed the popular Austin Power movies. Myers also co-wrote Wayne’s World with Bonnie and Terry Turner and appeared in the film alongside Dana Carvey and Rob Lowe.
Austin Powers, the funnier James Bond
Given that the Austin Powers films are partial parodies of James Bond flicks, we can only guess what they will come up with for the fourth Austin Powers movie will be about. But no doubt, the fourth addition to the franchise will be as wild and funny as the previous three in the series, if not more so.
