Director duo Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, who spoke in a Twitter Spaces session, on 24th May, a few hours after the trailer release of their upcoming big-budget release The Gray Man has revealed that they have plans to expand the film into a universe and have Dhanush play the lead in one of the spin-offs very soon.
The Russo Brothers began speaking saying that they are big fans of actor Dhanush and they wrote the role keeping him in mind. “You can expect a new film starring his character in the lead soon.
