Netflix shares first look at pictures from The Gray Man

The summer months tend to get all of the big movies, and this year, even Netflix has a summer blockbuster to call its own. Avengers Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo are helming The Gray Man, an upcoming spy movie/action thriller that may be the most expensive film in Netflix’s history. This film also has an all-star cast that would make it the envy of any theatrical release. And while the first trailer is a few months away, Netflix has released a few pictures of The Gray Man cast in character.

Ryan Gosling in The Gray Man.

Ryan Gosling is headlining the film as Court Gentry, a CIA black ops mercenary who is so skilled that no one truly knows who he really is. However, that anonymity can’t protect Court when he discovers information that incriminates the CIA itself.

Chris Evans in The Gray Man.

Normally, Chris Evans would portray the hero in a movie like this. But the former Captain America has taken a darker role as Lloyd Hansen, “an unhinged former colleague of Gentry.” Lloyd is leading the manhunt to capture Court, and he doesn’t care who he has to kill to accomplish his goal.

Ana de Armas in The Gray Man.

Following her scene-stealing appearance in No Time To Die, Ana de Armas plays Dani Miranda. We don’t know much about Dani herself, but de Armas has one of the leading roles in the film, so we expect Dani will play a big part in the story.

Rege-Jean Page in The Gray Man.

Finally, we have Rege-Jean Page, the breakout star of Netflix’s Bridgerton. Netflix couldn’t get Page back for a second season of Bridgerton because he wanted to move on to bigger things. In this movie, he will be playing a character named Carmichael.

Billy Bob Thornton also stars in the film as Donald Fitzroy, with Julia Butters as Claire Fitzroy, Alfre Woodard as Maurice Cahill, Eme Ikwuakor as Mr. Felix, and Robert Kazinsky as Perini. Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Dhanush, Callan Mulvey, Scott Haze, Michael Gandolfini, Sam Lerner, and DeObia Oparei also have undisclosed roles in the movie.

The Gray Man was adapted from Mark Greaney’s novel by Joe Russo, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely. Unlike many Netflix films, The Gray Man will get a brief theatrical release on July 15 before premiering on Netflix itself on July 22.

Netflix reveals its film schedule for summer 2022
Jamie Foxx in Day Shift.

CinemaCon is unfolding in Las Vegas this week, and the major movie studios are showing off their upcoming titles to entice film lovers to return to theaters. Netflix, on the other hand, is making a case to stay home this summer with an ambitious film slate that would be the envy of any studio. Earlier this week, Netflix shared a few pics from perhaps its biggest film of the summer, The Gray Man. The Russo brothers (Avengers: Endgame) are helming that spy action thriller with Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, and Ana de Armas. It's reportedly a $200 million movie that may be the most expensive Netflix production to date. And it's far from the only thing that Netflix has lined up.

Other highlights include Spiderhead, a new thriller from the writers of Deadpool and Zombieland that has Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller sharing the spotlight in that flick. Elsewhere, Jamie Foxx is headlining the vampire movie Day Shift, while Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg are teaming for a sports comedy called Hustle. But that's just a small sampling of what's coming.

First Man review

Damien Chazelle has a knack for creating movies as beautiful as they are powerful.

First it was 2014's achingly intense Whiplash, then it was 2016's contemporary musical La La Land, and now Chazelle displays more of that same filmmaking magic with First Man, a biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong that chronicles the events leading up to the Apollo 11 mission that made him the first human to walk on the surface of the moon.
