In a recent interview with Access Online, Mike Myers hinted at a fourth Austin Powers movie. “You’re going to see Dr. Evil soon, somewhere in the culture. But the movie . . . they take a long time to write. They always have.” He added: “It’s looking good, so we’ll see.”
Many Austin Powers fans are thrilled over the idea of a fourth Austin Powers movie. However, with the MeToo movement in full effect, Austin Powers’ blatant sex-crazed personality might not sit well with an audience in today’s time. Also, the fourth installment wouldn’t be the same without the Mini-Me, Verne Troyer, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
While these are a few factors that may put a halt on a fourth movie ever hitting theaters — according to Myers, Austin Powers fans will be seeing Dr. Evil soon. If the British spy does make his way back to the big screen for a fourth time, it will be interesting to see the way it is portrayed.
