A movie full of action, humour, mystery and thrill is remembered by all. Especially when there is a great storyline along with brilliant performances, the fun gets to some other level. For years, spy movies, novels, series etc have been loved by a large number of people due to the mystery they bring along with the amazingly charming character development. But what is different about the film franchise ‘Austin Powers’ is it has a humorous charm attached to it.

The second film was released in 1999 with the title- Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. The team of makers here involve almost the same team of the first film stars almost the same characters. The differences occur in the plots of the film which has been really great both the times. The plot of the first film is about how a British spy is completely thawed after his enemy’s visit from space to Earth. Whereas the plot of the second film continues the storyline where the enemy Dr. Evil returns back to his territory after stealing the magical charm of the protagonist. Both the films are highly adventurous and bring lovely fun to the table making the viewers highly entertained.
The third film has the title ‘Austin Powers in Goldmember’. This is majorly about the kidnapping of one of the characters present in the film. All the films did really well at the box office and received global appreciation. With three back to back releases in a lesser amount of time, audiences across the world immediately started focusing on the next sequel. Recently, a huge number of articles stated that Austin Powers 4 might be a near future in the cinema world. But if you dig deeper, there is no official or extremely confirming news out yet.
Will there be Austin Powers 4?
Considering the third movie which was released way back in 2002, it’s nearly two decades and there is no solid information till now about a fourth movie but it’s very much likely that it’ll happen although we’ll have to wait for a while. In fact, there are many rumours and speculation that a fourth movie is happening but we cannot be too true until or unless it has been officially announced by the makers.
If Austin Powers 4 happens, it’s expected that the fourth film of the franchise will also be directed by Jay Roach and jotted down by Mike Myers, and as far as the consideration of current articles is to be taken.
The making of the film started coming into the light in 2008 itself but it was mostly an on and off situation and moreover, it wasn’t confirmed by the filmmakers.
Seemingly, the film’s making is rolling the news all over the internet, expecting it to roll out this year or in 2022 might not be a good assumption. The interviews from the past reveal that a desire to go for the fourth sequel is definite but the scenario makes us doubt the same. After the pandemic, the world of cinema has experienced a major shake and therefore, the slow pace of several creations can be seen. Let us hope for the best and wait patiently until any confirmed news is out.
