Gru Returns, Badder Than Ever!
|The spectacularly macho super villain, El Macho.|
"Despicable Me 2," Universal's animated follow-up (directed by Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin) to the highly regarded 2010 "Despicable Me," is on the way on July 3, 2013 (UK release is June 28, 2013). Benjamin Bratt voices the main bad buy, perhaps El Macho pictured above, and of course Steve Carrell is back as Gru and Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario. Steve Coogan plays the head of the Anti-Villain League. Kristen Wiig is Agent Lucy Wilde, with whom Gru may be becoming romantically involved.
To get caught up on the storyline, check out the review of the original "Despicable Me."
