Would a sequel of Edgar Wright’s comic book adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, make sense? Mary Elizabeth Winstead thinks so.
During a recent interview with ComicBook.com to promote the upcoming release of Bids of Prey – which arrives in theatres on February 7, 2020 – Mary Elizabeth Winstead revealed that she thinks it would “be cool” to find out what happened to everyone tens years after the events of the first film and after hearing her pitch, we tend to agree.

“You know what, I think that would be so cool. I would be so curious to know what happened to these characters when they’re in their mid 30s as opposed to the sort of 20 slacker thing,” Winstead explained. “So I think it would be really interesting. We always talked about a sequel when we were doing it, but we always imagined it would be like, still like a year later. Where are they? But I think it’s way more fascinating to know where they’d be 10 years later. I’m down for it.”
Even though Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2 might sound like a great idea, the first film was a major box office disappointment, pulling in only $48 million against a $60 million budget, so in our eyes the likelihood of a sequel happening is slim. That said, we did just learn a fifth Lethal Weapon movie is on the way, so anything is possible.
