Amazon has brought us Samaritan. It’s available to stream on Prime Video right now. Is this the only movie in the franchise? Will there be a Samaritan 2?
Sylvester Stallone is back on our screens with the movie Samaritan. It was supposed to head to theaters, but the pandemic delayed it. After Amazon acquired MGM, the movie was pushed straight to Prime Video, and that’s where we can watch it right now.
By the end of the movie, you’ll have one question. Is there going to be a Samaritan sequel?
Will Samaritan 2 happen at Prime Video?
There are no signs right now as to whether this movie was written as just a standalone movie or a sequel is in the works. Of course, it’s Sylvester Stallone. We know that he tends to turn movies into something much bigger than just the one. Just look at the Rocky movies and The Expendables movies.
There is always going to be material for a second movie. This is the joys of action and fantasy. The storylines are endless.
So, we’ll just have to wait to see what Amazon decides. It will want to see how the movie performs on Prime Video first. There’s a chance that Amazon was worried about the viewership, which was why it was cut from a theatrical release.
However, with the likes of Cinderella, we are seeing some positivity with moving movies straight to streaming. It could have worked out beneficial for Samaritan. People don’t really want to leave their homes anymore, and movie theaters are getting expensive!
We’ll be sure to keep an eye on the plans for the future of this potential franchise. I wouldn’t rule it out just yet.
