Dhanush, who made his Hollywood debut with Russo Brothers’ The Gray Man, confirmed that he would be reprising his role as Avik San aka Lone Wolf, in the sequel. On Saturday, the actor shared an audio clip on his Twitter handle in which he can be heard warning Sierra Six (played by Ryan Gosling), “Six, This is Lone Wolf. I hear we are both looking for the same man. I want to offer you some advice. Stop looking. You are wasting your time. Because if I find him first, there will be nothing for you to look for. And if you find him first, then I will find you. Nothing personal.” In the captions, Dhanush wrote, “The Gray Man universe is expanding and the sequel is coming… Lone Wolf is ready, are you?”
