The director said, “I mean, we always said that it was up to the audience, but you never want to assume because Greg Rucka, who wrote the graphic novel, always envisioned this as a trilogy. So he always knew where the story could go. And it’s very cool where it could go, but you can never assume, you have to focus on the first film. It is incredibly flattering that people want to see more, it means that you did your job, so, you know, we’ll see.”
While the Old Guard has already ended with a plot to start the sequel, so why not. Though the novel’s sequel has already been published in 2019, so now it is time to change it into an action and thrilling movie. Rucka, the writer, had mentioned, “In case of the sequel, break the glass. It’s very straightforward. Do you want another one? Here’s a way to get into it.”

Charlize Theron starred as Andy or Andromache of Scythia. She is the oldest immortal and the leader of the squad. Kiki Layne as Nile Freeman, who served in Afghanistan as a U.S. Marine and became an ally of the group. Kiki revealed her thoughts about the character saying, “I love this character, I love this world. I love all of the people that I got to work with. This cast and the whole team were super dope.

Old Guard 2 Plotline
The plot of Old Guard 2 has not been confirmed yet but we can expect that it can be related to the return of Quynh from the water prison. She was captured in an iron maiden and thrown into the ocean for eternity. As an immortal, she couldn’t die but the resentment has definitely filled her upto the brim. She would have thought that she was abandoned in there and nobody has tried to find her. Unexpectedly, she appeared in Booker’s apartment, though he doesn’t recognize her, the way she spoke was not friendly. Nobody knows how she will react after finding out that Andy is no longer an immortal. Would there be any other mystery?
The director, Bythewood said, “I know that Greg Rucka, who wrote the graphic novel in the script, always envisioned this as a trilogy. I know where the story goes, and it’s pretty great. So if the audience is eager for it, there’s definitely more stories to tell.” Hope for the best and may the sequel is as successful as the first film.
