Knives Out fans are ecstatic for the franchise's next feature. Tuesday afternoon, Knives Out 2 became a trend on Twitter as fans discussed which sequel they're looking forward to most. Rooted in a now-viral post from DiscussingFilm, cinema buffs infatuated with the Rian Johnson whodunnit couldn't stop talking about what they want to see in a sequel. As of this writing, the follow-up is still a trend, with more tweets than any of the other sequels in contention.

If you were hoping to see Chris Evans in his role — which, judging by the tweets, many were — Johnson himself has confirmed the actor won't return for the sequel.
“Think of it like another Hercule Poirot novel from Agatha Christie. So, whole new location, whole new cast. Does that cancel out all your questions?” Johnson revealed about the sequel earlier this year. “Not in my movie, but in life? I mean, he lives in Boston so, why not?”

Holmes & Watson
I believe the only returning cast from Knives Out should be Daniel Craig and Ana De Armas. Knives Out 2 can be about them solving another crime. They could have a Holmes and Watson style friendship. I just love Daniel and Ana so much and they have such great on screen chemistry pic.twitter.com/nBGYpqyY5i— 𝘑𝘰𝘩𝘯 🎬 (@johneberlejr) July 21, 2020

Knives Out 2 is trending so let me just say I think it should be the same cast but as different characters in a completely unrelated story a la AHS.— Scott (@Salty_Scott) July 21, 2020
Knives Out is now available wherever movies are sold. The untitled Knives Out sequel has yet to set a release date.prev
