Yes No Maybe. Mike Myers maintains the mystery on the return of Austin Powers to the cinema.
Austin Powers is to parody what james bond is espionage: a reference. While he is currently promoting his new series, which is released today on Netflix, Mike Myers has revived rumors of a fourth installment of the adventures of the craziest of spies.
During a podcast appearance The Jess Cagle Show, Mike Myers delivered a rather ambiguous answer as to the possibility of seeing Austin Powers again soon on our screens. As usual, the troublemaker has not really confirmed or denied these rumors. Preferring to play on the gray area.
“I can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of such a project, whether it exists or not. This is an unconfirmed confirmation confirmation.”
Launched in 1997, the franchise Austin Powers reported nearly $67 million at the box office with the first installment. Quickly, the studios decided to devote two sequels to it, which were rather appreciated by the public and the critics.
In 1967, Austin Powers was a fashion photographer by day and a secret agent by night. He travels back in time to pursue his enemy, Doctor Hell, and finds himself immersed in the heart of the 90s. A thinly disguised parody of James Bond that is a mine of memes.
