WMG / Despicable Me 2

Antonio (from the sequel) will return.
It's pretty likely that there'll be a third Despicable Me, since there's already a spin-off in the works. Considering his plotline got dropped after he started flirting with another girl and he's the son of the (defeated) villain, he may be back to avenge his father, and to get a defeat by Margo's hands, for breaking her heart.

Perkins (Bank of Evil) and Ramsbottom (AVL) are brothers.
And, like the Duke brothers, are playing a high-stakes game. How many monuments can Bank od Evil-backed villains steal vs. how many supervillains can AVL agents arrest. The bet? TWO dollars. Because the stakes on this game are higher.

The villains from the first film DID get their comeuppance.
Miss Hattie's orphanage was probably shut down due to her cruel conditions and the kids were put in another orphanage or found homes. Mr. Perkins probably went mad after his son was stuck on the moon and he suffered a nervous breakdown.

Margo and Antonio had a fight.
Yes, Antonio was flirting with another girl. But! Maybe he and Margo regarding Gru. Antonio started making fun of Gru and even called him a "second rate father" and other such names. Margo tried to play it off, but then went full-on ballistic at Antonio for his bad mouthing of her dad right in front of him. The two then broke up. Antonio, angry at the whole thing, decided to make Margo jealous. He started dancing with another girl...in Margo's direction.

Gru and Lucy will be expecting their first biological child in the third film.
The birth will be near or at the film's end, and the baby will be a boy.

Edith is the daughter of the samurai Mifune.
Blonde hair? Check. Aversion to romance? Check. Badass McNinja? Freaking check.

The Avery we see Margo texting is a girl.
But Margo still has a crush on her.

The girls will have a more prominent role in the third movie.
The villains from the first two movies will return and will try to get Gru by hurting him where it hurts most: His daughters. They'll report that he isn't fir to be a parent to social workers because of his past life as a villain. Lucy will even get arrested because of her association with Gru. Then, the girls would be forced by the villains to pilot off some "ultimate crime" with two.possible outcomes. Should they succeed, they won't be split from each other and their family. If they don't, they'll have to say "bye" for good.

Despicable Me 3 will have a focus on Edith
The first movie mostly focused on Margo (and therefore the others) accepting Gru as a father. Although she did get another role in Despicable Me 2, that one focused a little more on Agnes with her need of a mother figure. I think the third movie will give Edith a focus, possibly about the mother/daughter relationship between her and her new stepmother.
  • One possibility for the third movies plot could involve a biological child being on the way and that causing one of the girls (Most likely Edith due to her having the least focus so far) to worry that her adoptive parents will not care about her as much when they have a new baby who is biologically related to them.

The 3rd movie will be called Despicable Three
its a good name

Kyle was neutered between movies

Before he was massively aggressive attacking everything on sight. Now not only does he not attack anything, but he looks completely depressed in a "I don't give a crap anymore" kind of vibe. Makes sense because Gru wouldn't want Kyle hurting the girls once they settled in as a real family.

The Despicable Me villians are Girl Genius Sparks.
First, note that we never see a villain with inherent powers (with the possible exception of El Macho), only Gadgeteer Geniuses. This also explains why Gru went into the jams business and generally doesn't seem to do as much inventing after the girls: inventing gadgets affects his brain and he doesn't like that effect anymore.

Agnes's Make Me Wanna Shout ability may have come from accidentally ingesting a green potion that Edith dropped from the first movie.
We all know Gru was, at best, neglectful of the girls and he even treated them like pets at first. Agnes was okay with eating candy from a pet bowl, what makes her not want to eat the bright green fluid on the floor when Edith accidentally dropped?

The third movie will feature heroes from Gru's past who don't realize he's retired
They will try to get to him, and 'save' the girls (and Lucy) from his clutches without realizing he's their father. Gru will team up with other super villains to get them back, as the villains go to save the day.

The third movie will feature female Minions.
Because why not.

Margo will be leaving college in Despicable Me 3
  • Word of God recently stated on twitter that Margo would be going through "crazy stuff" and a recent official art shows Margo and her sister all grown up. The "crazy stuff" could be referring to her heading off to college and she may not feel ready.

Despicable Me 3 will serve as the franchise's Grand Finale
