Chris Evans and a Moustache Pop Up in the First Look for Massive Netflix Film The Gray Man

Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, and Ryan Gosling also pop up.

( Before Chris Evans became Captain America, he played a slew of pretty kooky characters—think the jock in Not Another Teen Movie (2001), one of seven evil exes in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)—and it looks like he's stepping things up again with a pretty unexpected new look. We're talking a questionable 'stache for upcoming Netflix original film The Gray Man. Take a look. It's funner without the whole context.

Okay, so the moustache is giving off very un-Captain America vibes yet, TBH, it isn't unwelcome. Seeing as The Gray Man is touted as one of the biggest films Netflix is making—with a reported grand budget above U.S. $200 million—we're waiting to see what kind of character requires that kind of moustache. 

Netflix is aiming for a James Bond level franchise with this spy movie—and with a cast that includes Evans, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Regé Jean-Page, Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard, Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, and more, we already can't wait to see more.

The first look at The Gray Man came as part of Netflix's fourth-wall breaking preview of their 2022 movie slate. Here's all you really need to know: they are continuing their 2021 streak of a new movie every week! Check out the whole clip below:

Oh yes, that was Gosling being badass on a train—among a whole lot of equally cool sneak peeks at Netflix's 2022 movie slate. But before that, back to the spy film in question.

The Gray Man is based on the debut 2009 novel of Mark Greaney. It was the first book to feature Court Gentry, a.k.a. Gray Man, a freelance assassin and former CIA operative. Gosling will play the ex-spy who is hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans). Though we're pretty intrigued by what looked like an interrogation scene between De Armas and Bridgerton's Jean-Page. Plus, we just have to note De Armas' previous appearance in No Time to Die might just help cement this supposed next 007 franchise. 

The Russo brothers will direct the film, with a script written by Joe as polished by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The two are also producers, alongside Mike Larocca on behalf of AGBO, the artist-led entertainment company founded by the brothers in 2017. AGBO and Netflix have already partnered on a previous massive action flick starring another Avengers star Chris Hemsworth with Extraction. So if you liked that, then The Gray Man is definitely worth putting on your list.


And speaking of your watch-list, we're here to help you out in choosing your 2022 couch-potato calendar. The sneak peak dropped clips from The Gray Man, the much-awaited sequel Knives Out 2 (with Netflix reportedly already having booked a third movie), Eddie Murphy in Dolomite Is My Name, the always badass Jennifer Lopez in action movie The Mother, Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron in The School for Good and Evil, and a whole lot more. 

To ease your binge-watching sessions—because yup, Netflix has dropped a total of 86 movie titles for 2022 already—we list them all down below for you by genre.
