Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Ahead of 2011’s The Muppets, Disney spoofed The Twilight Saga, Green Lantern and Captain America: The First Avenger in a series of posters promoting the musical comedy. And now for Muppets Most Wanted, director James Bobin & Co. are at it again, with send-ups of James Bond films, Face/Off and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
The film, which opens March 21, stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell. Here’s the official synopsis:
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, a.k.a. Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
