The Gray Man is believed to be the biggest-budget feature film in Netflix’s history. “The movie is a real mano a mano between those two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be, and what it can do,” Anthony Russo said in a previous interview. “For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting.”
The Russo brothers, enjoy a great fan following and are known for directing Marvel films, including Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). Earlier this year, Joe Russo wrote Extraction, set in Dhaka and starring Chris Hemsworth.
