The Gray Man to be a spiritual successor of Winter Soldier

Every director has their own distinct style, which they bring to every movie. For James Cameron, it would be creating high CGI spectacles. For Guillermo del Toro, it has been his love for monsters and the dark horror vibes. But when it comes to the highly successful brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, their immaculate action choreography can be identified from miles away.

They have time and again mesmerized audiences with the most realistic action sequences in films like Captain America Winter Soldier. And it looks like they will do the same with Netflix Original The Gray Man.

While discussing if their previous films will have inspiration for their newest thriller, Joe Russo said it most definitely will. He added, “We wanted to use ‘The Winter Soldier’ as a springboard into something else action-oriented.”

The Gray Man, according to Joe, is going to be an action-packed film with stunt choreography unlike anything before.
