Call to all comic book fans: Netflix has just dropped your last obsession. Based on the comic of the same name, The old guard tells the story of four-century-old immortals who work secretly to protect humanity and – just when they discover another immortal – realize that their secret powers have been exposed. The last scene in the movie definitely points to a possible sequel, but does that mean fans will get one? According to The old guard Creator Greg Rucka and director Gina Prince-Bythewood, there is a good chance that we will get not just one sequel, but two.
2017 was the first mini series with five editions of The old guard, Subtitle Open firewas released and it didn't take long for fans to get excited. Although Open fire (like Netflix & # 39; Adaptation) works as an independent narrative, Rucka knew that the story wasn't over yet. He teamed up again with artist Leandro Fernandez for the second five-volume volume of The old guard, Subtitle Force multipliedand the co-creators plan to publish an as yet untitled third and last volume. Rucka explained Looper that – although Netflix has not ordered sequels yet – the story includes more and he'd love to see it come to life. "There is more to tell and there are questions we want to answer," said Rucka. "But now I have to tell you this: if that's all we get, I'll be a very happy guy."
Director Prince-Bythewood expressed a similar feeling, saying that it is up to the audience (and Netflix) whether they want to see more or not. "It's about the audience. Does the audience want to see more? Obviously you hope that an audience wants to see more," she said Digital spy. The director also revealed Weekly entertainment that she and Rucka have plans for two more films, and if people wanted to see more, she would be interested in delivering. "The graphic novel itself is a trilogy," she said. "Where the story goes is pretty phenomenal. If the audience is for it, I think we are too."
After making the first film for two years, Prince-Bythewood is not sure if she would be ready to go straight into a sequel. Upon request from Collider whether she would like to stage the possible second and third film, she said: "I really should think about it. It has been two years and I am just coming out, I am looking forward to a break. I would if I go on I was the first who established it, but it would probably also annoy me and I would say: "Nil doesn't do it!" So I just don't know. "
Fortunately, the cast appears to be a game. Charlize Theron (who plays Andy) told Complete film"We talked about it (a sequel) as an option, and it's definitely something that excites us." While chatting with Digital spyMatthias Schoenaerts (who plays Booker) said: "We are ready to go," and Luca Marinelli (who plays Nicky) added that "naturally" they are interested in repeating their roles. The ball is now in your field, Netflix.
