Netflix’s biggest-ever film, The Gray Man, will premiere this summer, so we won’t have to wait long to find out what it has to offer.
The movie’s release date was confirmed in July 2022, along with an official first look at the film. If you’re not anticipating the film, you simply don’t understand what it’s about.
A stellar cast, including Anthony and Joe Russo and Chris Evans from the Avengers, as well as familiar faces from James Bond and Bridgerton, return for the action-packed thriller.
Adapted from Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name, The Gray Man has a reported budget of $200 million. If all goes according to plan, it could be the start of a new franchise for the Russo brothers.
Let’s take a quick look at The Gray Man first before we get ahead of ourselves.
Cast: Who Is in the Gray Man?
Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling lead the cast, with Gosling portraying a former CIA operative who works as a freelance assassin (AKA the titular Gray Man).

Former CIA coworker Lloyd Hansen (played by Evans) is assigned to track down the Gray Man and is thus cast as the film’s antagonist. This is Evans as the villain, so it’s an interesting character, and the Russo brothers expect Evans to get to flex a lot in this role.
Evans’ Knives Out co-star Ana de Armas, who appeared in No Time to Die, and Bridgerton breakout Regé-Jean Page round out the all-star supporting cast.
Page said of his work on the movie, “The weirdest thing about working on a Russo set is that the standards are so crazy high for everyone in every department that they don’t police you through stuff.”
“They tell you, “Here, do this crazy hard thing.” Because they don’t hire people who can’t, they just assume you’ll be able to do it.”
Billy Bob Thornton will play Gentry’s former handler Donald Fitzroy, and de Armas will play Agent Dani Miranda, who aids Gentry in his fight for survival. These are the only other roles that have been announced so far.

The Gray Man: a Film Review
Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), a CIA operative known as Sierra Six, plays the role of the Gray Man. Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned death merchant who was rescued from a federal penitentiary by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton) and brought into the fold.
However, the tables have turned, and now Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former CIA coworker on the lam, is hunting down Six and will stop at nothing to eliminate him. He’s safe with Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas). He’ll be grateful for it.
The Plot of the Gray Man
A ruthless, highly skilled “agency-sanctioned merchant of death,” Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling) is plucked from prison and recruited by Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton) in The Gray Man. The tables turn on him, however, when he unintentionally uncovers dark secrets about his own agency.
The psychotic Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former colleague, places a bounty on Six’s head, sending assassins from all over the world after him. Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) is the only person he can rely on, no matter how dangerous the situation.
The Release Date of “The Gray Man”
The Gray Man will be released in theatres on July 15th, 2022, but if you’d prefer to watch it at home, Netflix will make it available on July 22nd, 2022.
Is There a Teaser for the Gray Man?
Yes! In the meantime, here is the first official full trailer for The Gray Man. The CIA and FBI will come after former agent Sierra Six if she continues down this path, according to an early Netflix teaser trailer clip (also shown below).
And it appears that that threat was more than just a joke. In The Gray Man, there will be helicopter chases, martial arts, explosions, and a lot of serious weaponry.
