There have been a lot of films that did not receive a great response at the time of their release. However, in this day and age of streaming, some of them reach the top of the streaming services out of nowhere. One such example of those kinds of films is The Losers. It was released back in the year 2010 and was not much of a success. People can even argue that the movie was a flop at the box office, considering the star cast it had. But the movie recently achieved the number one position in the movie category on Netflix when it was released on the platform on the 1st of August. It also reached the number three position overall on Netflix, which is a huge deal.
This had the fans and audiences popping up the question that will there be a sequel to The Losers? The movie, which was released in 2010, had some of the most popular actors from Hollywood. The cast included Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. These are the most popular actors who have recently played the most iconic roles in comic book movies. Chris has played Captain America in Marvel, Zoe has played Gamora in Marvel as well. Whereas on the DC side, Jeffrey played Thomas Wayne in Batman v Superman and Idris exceptionally played the character of Bloodsport in the latest release The Suicide Squad.
Plot Of “The Losers”
The action flick from the year 2010 arrived on Netflix on the 1st of August 2021. The movie, which stars such namely actors from Hollywood had a different story when it was first released in theatres originally. However, this time the movie grabbed everyone’s attention on Netflix and gained itself a spot in the top 3 overall streamings. This was also strange for many people who watch any movie based on its reviews and ratings because this movie did not have that many positive reviews.
Therefore, let us dive a little bit into the story of the film. The story circles around a bunch of highly trained individuals who work for the United States Special Forces. It all starts with the team going on a mission to eliminate a drug lord in Bolivia.
The team tries to get a clear target on the drug lord for the airstrike to be executed on his base of operation. However, they spot a group of children who are kept there as slaves. So, the team first moves on to save those children and then eventually kills the drug mafia. But things take a dangerous turn when they are betrayed by one of their team member on that mission. This forces them to go into hiding so that they can plan revenge and kill him. As the story progresses, they get to that member who betrayed them, but due to a surprising twist, he escapes from the team.
Will There Be A Sequel To “The Losers”?
The movie ends with most of the characters in the film and especially most team members surviving at the end. In addition to that, the main villain, which was the member who betrayed the team, also manages to escape. He also gets robbed in the end however there was no confirmation about how he ended up at the end. All these unexplained stories have got the fans asking for a sequel since the movie reached the top spot on Netflix.
The honest answer to the fans’ question about a sequel is probably a no. The movie was released almost 11 years back, and at that time, it did not receive a good response. Although the film had an amazing star cast, good dialogues as well as good comic timings, it could not perform great. The movie was based on the comic book writings from the Vertigo comic series in DC. It was written by Andy Diggle and Jock. This can also be a reason for the films’ underwhelming performance. Comic book adaptations were not so successful during those years. The only successful ones were the proper superhero flicks adapted from the comics like Batman, Spiderman, and more.
Therefore, a sequel is very far from possible for “The Losers”. But there can be a chance of a reboot of the movie with different actors. Moreover, Netflix can think about bringing a reboot of the film seeing the response from the audience after its release on the platform. However, even that possibility is far away, and we can only wait and see if anything happens on the project.
