Evangeline Lilly Says There Will Never Be a REAL STEEL 2
I missed the release of Real Steel, but it looked like a fun movie. A little later, I got to watch it at home and I really liked it. I was expecting a film more focused on the robots and the fights compared to the warm-hearted film we did get. Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly were incredible as always. I’ve always kind of hoped they would revisit the film in some way. Sadly, Lilly has shot any hopes of that happening. At a panel at FanX, Lilly was asked about the possibility of a sequel, and she explained that it’s just not going to happen. She says that she’d love to do it, but due to poor marketing and box office numbers, the sequel would never happen.
I’ve included a video from the panel where Lilly was talking about her upcoming book, The Squickerwonkers. The Real Steel question happens around the 15:50 mark.
