Whoever designed these posters for Muppets Most Wanted was likely inspired by the tender little bit in the film where Fozzie says “Kermit, you were like James Bond back there.” You might remember it from the trailer.
Or maybe they’ve been looking through our secret files and were inspired by the comments of production designer Eve Stewart. You will be able to read everything she said in the next issue of Bleeding Cool Magazine and my extensive Muppets Most Wanted set report, but here’s what came up when she was talking about securing locations:
We went to the Tower of London and asked and usually they’d say no, but this time we said, ‘It’s for The Muppets’, so they said, “We love Kermit even more than James Bond” and so the drawbridge was lowered.
In any case, Kermit + James Bond just seems to make sense. I’m enjoying Daniel Craig a great deal, but you can guess who I’d want to step in when he leaves.
Muppets Most Wanted is released in the US on March 21st and the UK on March 28th. I’ll see you there.
