Mike Myers has renewed fans' hopes of a brand new Austin Powers sequel.

The creative mind behind the spy spoof trilogy was speaking at the premiere of new film Terminal when he responded more positively than expected when asked if he would reprise the role for a new film that could be centred on villain Dr. Evil

“Well, I can't really, I can't say. But it's, you know, maybe. It's a very strong maybe. We'll see,” he told Entertainment Tonight.

“I would love to do a movie from Dr Evil’s perspective. So it would be D. Evil 1, Austin Powers 4, is how I would roll. Start the campaign, please. Thank you.”

Myers last played Powers as well as Dr Evil and multiple other characters in Goldmember which was released in 2002. It followed International Man of Mystery (1997) and The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999).

“I would love to,” he continued. “You know, I've been very... I've had three kids in the last six years and that's sort of been where my focus has been. But, you know, I love doing all the characters and it's a non-stop party when we're shooting. It's fun.”
