Will The Fighter 2 finally get a release date 12 years after its announcement? What we know so far
The uncertainty about whether there will be a sequel to The Fighter is making people more excited about the possibility of seeing more of Micky Ward’s story.
The Fighter, which came out in 2010, was a very popular movie that told the story of boxer Micky Ward’s life. Mark Wahlberg played the role of Ward and gave a great performance. The movie showed not only the brutality of boxing, but also the complexities of family and addiction.
Now, the anticipation for the sequel, titled The Fighter 2, has been brewing for more than a decade. The movie, which is set to continue the story of Micky Ward, has been a topic of discussion, but a confirmed release date remains a dream for fans. Wahlberg, who portrayed Ward, expressed his eagerness for the project, stating, “I’m always kind of looking for the next thing. But if the audience really wants it, and they really love it, and we can make one better than the first then I’d be willing to do it again, for sure.”
What The Fighter 2 will be about?
The sequel, intended to be part of a trilogy, will delve into the trilogy of fights between Ward and his fierce rival, Arturo Gatti. These bouts, spanning the early 2000s, were so intense that both fighters required immediate medical attention after their matches, solidifying their place in boxing history. This intense rivalry forms the core of The Fighter 2, promising gripping sports drama and raw human emotion.
Is there a release date for The Fighter 2?
However, despite the confirmation of the sequel back in 2011, the release date has remained a mystery. Wahlberg’s candid acknowledgement of the challenges posed by his ageing process adds an air of uncertainty. As of now, the release could range from 2024 to 2030, leaving fans in suspense about when they will witness the next chapter of Ward’s story unfold on the big screen.
Who will star in The Fighter 2?
Regarding the cast, while Wahlberg’s return as Micky Ward is hoped for, it’s uncertain due to the passage of time. Jerry Ferrara was previously reported to portray Arturo Gatti, but with the lack of recent updates, his involvement remains unclear. The passage of nearly 15 years since the original film’s release further complicates the return of the original cast, adding an element of unpredictability to the sequel’s lineup.
