Netflix’s ‘The Old Guard’ is an action movie that relies on the supernatural to push its plot. It creates a mystery for the audience, and while its ending sheds light on some things, it also leaves a lot of questions unanswered. With the twist ending that no one saw coming, the film leaves us on a cliffhanger that could change everything for the Old Guard. The filmmakers wouldn’t have left a thread hanging if they didn’t want to continue with the story. So, when is ‘The Old Guard 2’ coming out? Here’s all you should know about it.
The Old Guard 2 Release Date
‘The Old Guard’ released on Netflix on July 10, 2020. The film received praise for its action sequences while promising a thrilling story to the audience. Netflix generally waits a while to gauge the reaction of the audience. As of now, no official announcements have been made for ‘The Old Guard 2’. However, the probability of it is pretty high. The film is based on a comic book series of the same name whose second installation is set to release in September 2020. The filmmakers have revealed their intention of continuing the story of the film in accordance with what happens in the comic books. This means that the sequel is definitely in the books! We expect ‘The Old Guard 2’ to release sometime in 2022 or later.
The Old Guard 2 Cast: Who’s in it?
‘The Old Guard’ stars Charlize Theron in the role of Andy, an immortal who is also a deadly mercenary. KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, and Luca Marinelli appear as Nile, Booker, Joe and Nicky, the other immortals. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the role of Copley, who turns from an antagonist to an ally of the immortals.
All of them are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel. At the end of ‘The Old Guard’, another important character comes into play. Van Veronica Ngo’s Quynh comes back to life and is expected to continue with her role in the next chapter of the story. With all the villains of ‘The Old Guard’ killed, we expect the sequel to come up with the slate of new ones, which means new actors would be joining the cast.
The Old Guard 2 Plot: What can it be about?
‘The Old Guard’ is based on the comic book of the same name, whose sequel ‘The Old Guard Two: Force Multiplied’ is to take the story forward. Because the first part stayed true to its source, we expect the same from the sequel. Considering the way film ends, we expect to go deeper into the inner tension of the group and shed some light on what makes them immortal.
The most important thread of the story would be the return of Quynh. After Andy failed to locate her for five hundred years, Quynh would surely have felt abandoned by her. Her return means Andy would have to look back at her past and come face to face with some dark things. Quynh’s return also poses the question of how she managed to break out of her hell? She couldn’t have done it herself. Someone must have helped her. Who is it, and what do they want from the immortals?
