The streaming giant announced the sequel on Twitter. The tweet read, “The Gray Man Universe is expanding! A sequel to The Gray Man is now in development with star Ryan Gosling, directors Joe & Anthony Russo & co-writer Stephen McFeely set to return! A spinoff is also in the works from acclaimed screenwriters Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese (Deadpool).”
Netflix also released a poster for the sequel, which stars Ryan Gosling. The Hollywood actor is depicted in a bright red suit with a stylish walking stance.
The Gray Man chronicles the life of a Sierra agent, aka 6, focusing on the storyline in which his former colleagues are on the hunt for him. The Russo Brothers directorial is based on Mark Greaney’s novel of the same name, published in 2009. The book series already has 11 parts in its repertory, with a 12th expected to be published in 2023. Based on the source material, it seemed inevitable that Netflix’s action-thriller would expand its universe.
Except for the screenwriter, no details regarding the spinoff are revealed. It would be fantastic if the planned spinoff centred on Dhanush’s character, the Lone Wolf. His persona’s appearance on the screen offers an enigmatic story that combines morals and action.
The Gray Man starred Ryan Gosling in the titular role. Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Dhanush, Rege-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, Alfre Woodard, Billy Bob Thorton, and Julia Butters also joined the ensemble in pivotal roles.
After Avengers: End Game and the MCU journey, The Gray Man emerged as the Russo Brothers’ most anticipated project. The action-thriller has received a lot of attention due to the appearances of Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, and Dhanush. The first look of the Indian star in action has mostly enthralled the audiences.
