The Gray Man (Netflix)
The Gray Man is a title that was recently confirmed to be a summer 2022 release. It has all the features of a Netflix crowd-pleaser, a top-notch budget coming in at over $200 million, and plenty of star figures such as Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Wagner Moura.
Some of the previous action-packed Netflix titles that have followed this formula and been successful include Extraction and Spencer Confidential, which were top-three English-language Netflix titles following their release.
Netflix will massively promote ‘The Gray Man’ on the home screens of Netflix users when it debuts. There may also be interest in this film because it’s directed by the dynamic duo, the Russo brothers, whose last film was the widely acclaimed Avengers – End Game.
