It was part of the graphic novel, and I always loved it because I felt there would have been a hole if it didn’t end the way it did. There’s always a fear because you don’t want to annoy an audience. I know how I feel when things are left open, but for me, we told the story. It does have a beginning, middle, and end.
She continued saying:
A possibility of more, but that’s absolutely up to the audience. Greg has always envisioned this as a trilogy. I know where the story is going and it’s pretty dope. So, if the audience wants more, there’s certainly more story to tell.
Gina Prince-Bythewood is not going to direct The Old Guard Sequel.

“It’s been two years, and just coming out of it now, I’m eager for a rest.”
