There are still a few more weeks to wait before the premiere of Extraction 2 but Chris Hemsworth is already looking toward the future. The Thor: Love and Thunder star is already campaigning for Extraction 3 and director Sam Hargrave confirms there is currently a plan for the third film.
Chris Hemsworth Wants To Work on Extraction 3
Chris Hemsworth recently spoke to Total Film magazine about Extraction 2 and he admitted that he enjoys working on the Netflix films (via GamesRadar).
"I love it," he said. "I love playing the character. I love this world. I love having something else outside of Marvel that’s amassed a bit of a following,
something more in the real world."
Hemsworth also claims that Extraction 2 is even better than the original movie.
"I honestly feel like we made a better film than the first one. That’s rare in the franchise world. We’d be remiss not to have a crack at another one," he said.
Interestingly, director Sam Hargrave agrees with Chris Hemsworth.
"There is so much room for this franchise to expand and places where it can go," Hargrave said. "I’m excited about what that next adventure for Tyler Rake could be."
He then pointed out that the audience's reaction will be a huge factor in whether there will be a third movie.
"We’ll see how this one does. We’ll see how people feel and respond. And if the world is craving another Tyler Rake adventure, I think it’d be something I’d be interested in seeing put up on screen," Hargrave said. He then confessed that there is already a plan for Extraction 3.
"I have an idea, but I won’t give it away here," the director said.
It's an exciting tease for the future and there is little doubt that Extraction 2 will be just as successful as the first movie. With that in mind, we're looking forward to seeing more of Tyler Rake in the future.
Extraction 2 brings back Chris Hemsworth as Tyler Rake. The sequel takes place nine months after the events in the first film and follows Rake as he is assigned to rescue a ruthless Georgian gangster's family from prison.
Extraction 2 also stars Golshifteh Farahani and Adam Bessa as Nik and Yaz Kahn, respectively. Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Bernhardt and Tinatin Dalakishvili are joining the cast. The film premieres on Netflix on June 16, 2023.
