Here’s what we know about How I Became A Superhero 2, including details about the cast, release date, and potential storyline. In 2021, Netflix released the original movie, How I Became A Superhero, which is based on Gérald Bronner’s novel of the same name. The storyline follows a detective who investigates a mysterious drug that gives users superpowers, and concludes with various reveals that set up a direct sequel.
How I Became A Superhero takes place in Paris, where superheroes co-exist with humans. Detectives Gary Moreau (Pio Marmaï) and his partner Cécile Schaltzmann (Vimala Pons) investigate a series of crimes involving flamethrowers and discover that a new type of superhero drug is being produced. Meanwhile, the main villain, Naja (Swann Arlaud), enlists various youths to help him distribute his blue product and also kidnaps the teenage daughter of a deceased superhero hoping to harvest her powers for a more potent drug. As Gary and Cécile zero in on their target, they team up with semi-retired superheroes who worked together a decade prior as the legendary squad Pack Royal.

Various mysteries are addressed in the ending of director Douglas Attal’s 2021 Netflix movie. It’s revealed that Moreau previously worked with Pack Royal as a liaison officer, and also that Naja has a long history with a local psychologist who knows that he’s a menace to society. How I Became A Superhero cleanly resolves all the major conflict and suggests that both Moreau and Lily will become part of the new Pack Royal.
Will Netflix Make How I Became A Superhero 2?
Netflix hasn’t officially greenlit How I Became a Superhero 2. The streaming service will likely assess viewing figures during the rest of the summer, and try to pinpoint if the French film resonates with global audiences in general. Expect Netflix to order How I Became a Superhero 2 at some point in 2021, assuming that the superhero premise will appeal to genre fans from all over the world.
How I Became A Superhero 2 Release Date
How I Became a Superhero 2 originally premiered in France before arriving on Netflix in July 2021. If the first movie becomes an immediate hit, then a sequel could potentially be scheduled for either a 2022 or 2023 release date. Since the cast doesn’t include any major Hollywood stars, it seems plausible that How I Became a Superhero 2 could release sometime in the latter half of 2022 or early 2023, at least if there aren’t any scheduling conflicts during production.
How I Became A Superhero 2 Cast
All of the main cast members from How I Became a Superhero will likely return for How I Became a Superhero 2. The exception is Arlaud’s Naja, who dies in the climax of the original film. Expect Marmaï and Pons to reprise their roles, along with Bekhti as Callista, Poelvoorde as Monte Carlo, and Souchaud as Lily.
How I Became A Superhero 2 Story Details
How I Became a Superhero’s ending positions Moreau and Lily as the main protagonists for How I Became a Superhero 2. The film reveals that the detective’s secret alter ego has been named Titan by Parisian society, and a post-credits scene shows Gigaman’s teenage daughter designing her own superhero costume. In addition, Cécile has been named as the new Pack Royal liaison for her precinct, which will complicate the sequel’s narrative given her blossoming relationship with Moreau. The major question mark at this point is Monte Carlo, who is indeed useful with his tracking skills but does appear to be in poor physical health. Incidentally, Callista may need to step up as the team’s leader, as Moreau will need some time to further develop his skills while young Lily will need guidance. How I Became a Superhero 2 will presumably take place in Paris, and also feature a new villain who will somehow gain the attention of the new and improved Pack Royal.
