The Gray Man fans want a sequel and prequel

While the film itself has received mixed reviews, fans believe it paves the way for more, including a sequel and more than one prequel.

Labeling The Gray Man a “just-fine film”, this user also thought the portrayal of Lloyd Hansen was one of Chris Evans’ best performances and wanted to see the assassin receive his own prequel.

Another user highlighted fan-favorite character Avik San, played by Dhanush, and stated they wanted to see him in the prequel and sequel should they ever come to fruition.

My expanded thoughts on #TheGrayMan: it could’ve and should’ve been sexier, and I’d be interested in a sequel/prequel w/ Dhanush’s character. Still a just-fine film, with one of Chris Evans’ best performances to date (actually give Lloyd Hansen a prequel). https://t.co/DP3qlBcaUH— Brandon Lewis (@blewis1103) July 19, 2022

The hidden gem of a star in The Gray Man was @dhanushkraja for sure! Would love to see more of him in the prequel AND sequel if they ever take off. Truly had a way of captivating your attention! #TheGrayMan— est ✪ (@mu1t1verse) July 22, 2022

The Gray Man sequel possibilities

Netflix has yet to announce plans for a sequel or prequel of The Gray Man, however, there is an abundance of source material that The Russo Brothers could work with.

The Gray Man is based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Mark Greaney and the success of his first novel spawned a whole series with eight sequels, including On Target, Dead Eye, and Relentless.

The Netflix feature also ended on a note that sets up more to come should it be greenlit, and judging by past action blockbuster Red Notice’s success in securing a sequel, The Gray Man could soon follow.

The Russo Brothers would love to continue

Speaking to Variety, The Russo Brothers revealed that they would love to continue the series, however, it all depends on if the viewers want more:

“It’s based on a book series, so there is the opportunity to expand this into future movies. We love to keep going with the world because we love all the characters. But we need the audience to tell us whether they want to see more of the story or not. If we do continue forward with the story, I can guarantee you that Dhanush’s character will be part of that world moving forward.”

In the same interview, The Russo Brothers also stated that they “keep getting texts from people I know and they just say ‘more Dhanush’ in the texts,” securing the Lone Wolf’s return in the sequel.
