10 Movie Sequel Teases That Went Absolutely Nowhere

10. Austin Powers In Goldmember

The Scene

After being shunned by his father in favour of Mini Me, Scott Evil (Seth Green) loses his grip on reality as quickly as he loses his hair and turns into a second Dr Evil, stepping into the original's shoes and swearing vengeance on Austin Powers.

What It Teased

A sequel in which Scott would be the new villain, while his father presumably continued to be a good guy with his brother Austin Powers.


Unfortunately, none of the MANY plans to make a fourth Powers movie have ever got anywhere beyond the planning stages, despite Mike Myers talking about making a Dr Evil-focused follow up for at least a decade. It's not like Goldmember didn't make enough money to justify it - there just doesn't ever seem to have been a good enough, fully-formed idea for the script.
