In light to the story details of the upcoming 'Toy Story 3', the voice actor for Hamm the Piggy Bank revealed that his character will be a superhero in the movie.

But, what's more can be shared about the upcoming movie? Apparently, fans can expect to see one particular character to be a hero in the movie, but it won't be Woody or Buzz Lightyear.
Talking about the one last adventure lays in front of the band of toys, John Ratzenberger, the actor filling the voice of Hamm the Piggy Bank revealed that in "Toy Story 3", a character other than Woody or Buzz Lightyear taking the center stage would be his character, Hamm. "Hammy is a villain in the beginning of the movie," gushed the 61-year-old. "[But then], Hammy becomes a superhero. You'll see."
Additionally, for those who fancy Mrs. Potato Head but do not get enough of her in "Toy Story 2", the third film is said to give the wife of clumsy Mr. Potato Head a bigger part. "[It's] wonderful!" explained Estelle Harris, the actress voicing the character. "I have a much bigger part. 'Toy Story 2' was my entrance, and I was a newlywed. But now, I'm still very much in love with Mr. Potato Head."
