The superhero movie Samaritan recently made its debut. And it is absolutely drawing attention. The narrative was previously adapted into Mythos Comics graphic novels by Schut, Marc Olivent, and Renzo Podesta and is described as a dark, cool take on superhero movies.
The film was met with mixed reactions from the public. Many people say that it is great to see Sylvester Stallone back in action on the big screen. In the movie, with misdeeds increasing and the city on the brink of collapse, Sam tends to make it his mission to get his neighbor out of hiding to save the city.
It is definitely a kind of narrative that is worth watching. But after watching it, many people are also curious if there will be a sequel. Looks like it’s time to finally explore that.
Will the sequel to Samaritan happen?
The streaming platform or the film’s creators have not announced a sequel to Samaritan at this time. It’s also unclear if the film is intended to be a standalone or a sequel.
However, given the fact that the original film took a long time to develop and encountered numerous delays, it’s risky. But don’t worry, the movie is hyped and gets a lot of attention from the audience. We are still waiting for official confirmation.
Julius Avery expressed his enthusiasm for the main character of the project after being named director of the project.
“We didn’t really have superheroes. We only had action heroes. And Sly was the closest thing we had to a superhero. So put him in a superhero movie? That feels cool and fresh and something that people will enjoy. This is a big event movie: we see our heroes kicking butt.
We’ll see Sly do things he hasn’t done in a long time, and in a really clever way. He is 73 years old! I am in awe of all that he really does. I assure you, most 20-somethings couldn’t do what Sly does in this movie.”
He also said at the time: “Sly is a hero to me, I am incredibly excited to be working with such an iconic actor on this very special project with Balboa Productions and MGM.”
Fascinating synopsis of the Samaritan
Just to remember this amazing watch, let’s go through the official synopsis. “In the film, thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith is actually a legend hiding in plain sight,” the synopsis reads.
“Twenty years ago, Granite City’s super-powered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a vicious warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis. Most believe that Samaritan died in the fire, but some in town, like Sam, are hopeful that he is still alive.
With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to convince his neighbor to come out of hiding to save the city from ruin.”
If you’re waiting for a sequel, we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can share your reviews on Samaritan.
