The Gray Man, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, also known as the Russo Brothers, and released recently on Netflix on July 22, 2022, will come back with its sequel.
The Gray Man had a limited theatrical premiere on July 15, 2022, before its digital release on Netflix. Both the general audience and critics had mixed reactions to it, enjoying the ensemble cast while criticizing the formulaic plot and fast-moving pacing.
Announcement Of The Gray Man 2
Days after the highly anticipated, $200 million-budget CIA thriller debuted on global streaming giant Netflix, the company announced plans to expand the franchise with a sequel and a spin-off, both of which are currently in development.
The Gray Man Universe is growing, and a sequel starring Ryan Gosling, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and co-written by Stephen McFeely, whose credits include “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain America: Civil War,” is in the works.
