Good news for fans of Chris Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake, the world-weary mercenary of the Netflix action movie Extraction. Not only is a sequel in the works, but, according to writer Joe Russo, there are early plans for a new cinematic franchise—The Extraction Extended Universe—including a potential spin-off for Gaspar, the other haggard mercenary played by David Harbour.
It wouldn’t be a terribly surprising development: Extraction was a big hit for Netflix, and the Russo brothers (Joe and Anthony) had a big hand in shaping the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including directing Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. So with Extraction 2 already in the works, Joe Russo told fans that more may be on the way.
“I’m still not gonna commit because I think it’s more exciting to surprise people,” he said, speaking at a virtual CCXP panel, “but I will say this: we are working at building out a universe of films that could potentially explore some of the other characters from the first movie and some new characters, and see more historical interaction between the characters. So if you’re interested in David Harbour’s character, you just may get to see him in a future Extraction movie.”
That certainly leaves open a lot of possibilities. The original film hinted at a rich backstory for Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake, including his relationship with Harbour’s Gaspar. There’ve been hints that Chris Evans may join the sequel cast, and that Oscar Issac may come aboard as a villainous drug lord. So far, everything’s been kept under pretty tight wraps, but fans should know more by the time Extraction 2 starts filming sometime next year.
