In a new excerpt from The Gray Man unveiled by Netflix, we see more of the duel between Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
New Netflix production and new action movie for Joe and Antony Russo (Avengers: Endgame), The Gray Man arrives this summer on the platform. After revealing all the potential appeal of Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling’s mustaches in the trailer for The Gray ManNetflix ensures the shooting by revealing a key scene of the film for the most curious.
Bringing together the actor duo in a rather stormy first meeting where blows, bullets and a few well-felt replies bounce off, they are also joined by the third protagonist, played by Ana de Armas. The extract remains rather funny and energetic, but does not really settle the question of the action scenes for the moment, the quality of which remains quite relative as far as the Russo brothers are concerned.
A spy film adapting Mark Greaney’s novel in which fearsome CIA agents clash, the Russo brothers return to attack a genre that seems to fascinate them (exploited in their own way in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) with an actor who is familiar to them: Chris Evans. Already considered a smash hit thanks to its cast and previous directorial successes, an expanded universe from The Gray Man would already be planned.
Will success be there? Definitely. Based on a formula similar to that of Red Notice, which was a total success in terms of audience, we can expect Netflix’s bet to be well and truly won. It remains to see the feature film, which we can report to its release on July 22.
