Spoilers for 'The Old Guard' on Netflix

A new superhero franchise is born with Netflix's 'The Old Guard' starring Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Chiwetel Ejiofor and more. Revolving around a group of immortal soldiers who have been shaping human history for millennia, 'The Old Guard' is an exciting new movie with the potential for multiple sequels.

By the end of the movie, Andy / Andromache of Scythia (Charlize Theron) appears to have become mortal, after over six thousand years of fighting the good fight. With her days numbered, Andy is now prepared to continue fighting alongside her team, despite knowing that the next time she dies, she dies for real. Nile Freeman (KiKi Layne) has fully accepted her role as part of the team. While she is still getting over the fact that she can't see her family again, she is content to spend eternity fighting to protect the human race.

To help them in this endeavor, Copley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) has now been tasked with wiping any trace of the team's existence from all media and surveillance. He will also be the one who finds them the mission best suited to their unique talents and will continue to play a major role as their contact with the normal world. After a lot of deliberation, the team also decides to banish Booker / Sebastian Le Livre (Matthias Schoenaerts) for a hundred years. Of course, when you're immortal you can't stay angry forever so they are willing to meet him again when that time is over but for now, Booker is cursed to be alone.

However, this won't be the last time we see Booker or the rest of our heroes. In the final scene of the episode, we see Booker meeting a mysterious woman in Paris, France, six months after his exile began, setting up a potential sequel.

The original graphic novel by Greg Rucka that the movie is based on does have a sequel titled 'The Old Guard: Force Multiplied' so there is more to this story that can be told at a later date. But for now, this is where we leave our heroes. Whether they get a second outing or not will depend on the success of this movie but we are confident that we should be hearing about a sequel soon enough.
