The reformed villain Gru (Steve Carell) joins the Anti-Villain League to help stop the dangerous super-criminal El Macho in Universal Pictures' Despicable Me 2. The studio has released a first look photo of El Macho, although there is some uncertainty as to who is voicing this character. We reported earlier this month that Benjamin Bratt replaced Al Pacino as the "main villain" Eduardo. It is possible that El Macho is simply Eduardo's dastardly pseudonym, but we don't know for sure. What is also unclear is how this man can ride a killer shark with missiles through the air, but it is an animated film, after all. At any rate, check out this villain from the upcoming animated sequel, in theaters July 3.
Despicable Me 2 was released July 3rd, 2013 and stars Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Ken Jeong, Steve Coogan, Elsie Fisher. The film is directed by Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud.
