Netflix Viewers Are Demanding A Sequel Of The Gray Man

Viewers are calling The Gray Man one of the best Netflix films they've seen in ages and they want a sequel.

The movie stars Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling, and it's helmed by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, so you know it's going to be a high-octane, explosive experience.

Gosling plays a covert CIA agent known only as Six, who accidentally discovers dark secrets from within the agency, prompting his former colleague Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans) to place a bounty on his head. 

What follows is a global man-hunt from a bunch of international assassins all hoping to kill Six and get their hands on the money.

Alongside Evans and Gosling, the movie also stars Ana de Armas, Billy Bob Thornton and British star Regé-Jean Page.

Despite critics panning the movie as style over substance, regular folk have been absolutely raving about it.

They've loved it so much that they're calling for a sequel to be made ASAP.

One person wrote: "Really good movie. I don’t feel like the ending gave us closure. I would hope a part 2 would happen."

Another added: "Really great movie. Watched it twice. Wishing there is a part 2 to it."

A third said: "Watched this yesterday it was really good. Hope they make another."

Well, it looks like they could get their wish as the Russo brothers have a Gray Man universe planned.

Speaking to Screenrant, Anthony Russo said: "Most things we do here we think about as a narrative universe.

"Certainly, that’s how we approach The Gray Man.

"We have many iterations of this narrative in our minds and it can have a variety of expressions, either in films or series.”

Joe added: "If we’re fortunate enough that the audience embraces this movie and we’re fortunate enough to make more of them.

“The movie’s really about a corrupt and toxic patriarchy. The Old Man is representative of that.

"He’s the ethereal character who floats around in the background and clearly has a lot of power and control but is very nefarious.”

Judging from the audience reaction on social media it won't be too difficult to convince Netflix to make a sequel.

The movie is based on the 2009 Mark Greaney novel of the same name.

It is said to have had the biggest budget of any Netflix movie – reportedly $200 million (£158.2m) – and was shot in numerous locations across the globe including the Czech Republic, France, Croatia and the US. 

It was released in cinemas on July 15 before landing on Netflix on July 22.
