Yes, according to the same portal, Joe Russo has confirmed Extraction 2. Excited much?
Talking about the sequel, Russo was quoted saying to Deadline, “The deal is closed for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be. We’re not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.”
“There was always a simple drive to the story, a balletic execution of action where you take a damaged character who made an egregious mistake in the past and has a shot at redemption which might be fatal,” Joe Russo further quipped to the portal. “What was key is that we needed a muscular action director like Sam to be the main creative force in the execution of the action.”
Apart from this, Russo wants and expects Sam Hargrave (the director with whom he worked on several Marvel movies in the past) to return at the helm. As for Hemsworth, Russo said that he will first show the actor the screenplay first who is very much excited to make a return. Well, this would be helluva interesting to watch the handsome hunk again onscreen.
