Mark Wahlberg has a surprise update on Uncharted 2 – and it’s one to treasure

Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland in Uncharted.

Uncharted actor Mark Wahlberg, who played Sully, the mentor of Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) in the 2022 video game movie, has given fans a promising new update on a potential sequel.

"I've heard lots of different ideas. I know somebody's written a script, and they're still working on it, and it would consist of having the mustache the whole entire time,” Wahlberg told The Direct. "Which completely makes sense; obviously, in that final scene, I have the mustache."

Wahlberg, of course, is referring to the Uncharted post-credits scene, which finally saw Sully adorn his face with a wonderful piece of facial fuzz. 

A sequel isn’t a guarantee, however. While Wahlberg let slip a crumb of info – a new script – that should be treasured, everything else still sounds very much under lock and key.

"When I finally got the mustache, people really appreciated it. And it was a nice tag to the end of that film. So if we can make it better than the first, you know, I'd be open to it, but I only know as much as you do right now," Wahlberg said.

Sully’s mustache reveal wasn’t the only post-credits stinger worth talking about. It also set up a potential sequel – both in introducing Nate’s brother and bringing two villains into play: a brand-new original character Gage, played by Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbaek, and the namechecked ‘Roman’ – who appears to be a reference to the British villain from the first Uncharted game, Drake’s Fortune.
