In a new sneak peek from the set of Extraction 2, Chris Hemsworth is in for a wintry adventure.
Despite the fact that the previous film’s conclusion had fans dread the worst, the Marvel actor reprises his role as mercenary Tyler Rake in the sequel.
Director Sam Hargrave shared a video on Instagram announcing the completion of the first day of filming. He didn’t say where the set was, but it appeared to be quite cold.
“That’s a wrap on day one of Extraction 2 with the train location,” Hargrave said in the video.
“We got a lot of snow today, but it looks pretty great on camera, so we’ll take it,” the director continued.
When Rake was shot on-screen by one of crimelord Asif’s associates and left for dead in a river at the end of the first film, his fate was left relatively uncertain.
However, a not-so-subtle clue was given in the film’s last scene that Hemsworth’s character had survived. In a vision by the kidnapped boy Ovi, a man who looks like Rake appears momentarily (Rudraksh Jaiswal).
A new teaser released in September depicts the aftermath of Rake’s apparent death as he opens his eyes underwater. The video ends with the hashtag “#RakeLives”, leaving little doubt as to whether the character will make a spectacular comeback in the second installment.
Hemsworth is reconnecting with Joe and Anthony Russo, who produced Avengers: Endgame. Joe also penned the screenplay for the upcoming film, which has yet to get an official release date.
