Jessica Alba is channeling superhero chic on the set of Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World in Austin. Despite the Texan heat, she looks pretty cool in her badass black pantsuit, a likely crossover from the closets of Catwoman and the Black Widow.
Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, stars of the Spy Kids trilogy, can also be seen with Alba and are clearly no longer kids. In this fourth installment, their characters Carmen and Juni Cortez will instead be arming the new Spy Kids with some incredible gadgets worthy of James Bond’s M.
Jessica Alba is playing Marissa Cortez Wilson, a retired spy who returns to service alongside her two step children, the new Spy Kids, to defeat the evil Timekeeper, played by Jeremy Piven. Community’s Joel McHale also stars as Marissa’s spy hunting reporter husband. Hit the jump to see the photos and read the full synopsis.

A sort of 007 for youngsters, Spy Kids was first released in 2001, followed by Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams in 2002 and Spy Kids 3D: Game Over in 2003. Spy Kids 4, which will also be in 3D, will hit theaters on August 19, 2011. In the meantime, check out the synopsis of what promises to be a fun-packed summer movie.
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case – Marissa’s a retired secret agent.
Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.
