Tomb Raider 2 cast: Who"s coming back for Tomb Raider 2?

Alicia Vikander will definitely be back as Lara Croft, but elsewhere it"s not as obvious who will return. If the sequel picks up from the first movie"s ending (more on that in a bit), we can expect Kristin Scott Thomas to lớn return as Ana Miller.

Dominic West is unlikely lớn come back as Lara"s father Lord Richard Croft after he sacrificed himself to lớn save his daughter, while villain Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins) also died in the first movie.

Maybe Daniel Wu will be back as Lu Ren, the ship captain who helped Lara find her father and escape from Yamatai.

If Vikander had her way, maybe we"ll also see a meta cameo from Angelina Jolie: "I wouldn"t mind! I adore Angelina, so we"ll see… we should definitely ask."

Tomb Raider 2 release date: When will Tomb Raider 2 arrive?

When it was announced that Wheatley would be directing the sequel, a release date of March 19, 2021 was also announced.

Given that the movie hadn"t started filming, it wasn"t a surprise that it was eventually delayed indefinitely. There might be a new writer/director on board, but we"re still waiting for a new release date for the sequel.

It took just over a year from when the first movie was filmed to lớn when it was released. Whenever Tomb Raider 2 finishes filming, it will likely be a bit more than a year until we see it released.

It"s worth noting that this is entirely speculation because nothing has been confirmed beyond the postponement. Until that happens, we won"t know anything for certain.

So the credits scene sees Lara buy the iconic twin guns from the đoạn clip game, determined khổng lồ carry on her father"s work to lớn stop Trinity.

Whether the sequel continues this thread of Lara"s battle against Trinity remains lớn be seen, but there"s also the opportunity for the sequel khổng lồ just mix up a new tomb và mission for Lara, completely detached from the original movie.

It could also take inspiration from the Rise of the Tomb Raider đoạn clip game sequel, given that the first movie took heavy inspiration from Crystal Dynamics" 2013 reboot of the gaming franchise.
