The 'Tomorrow War' director teased a possible sequel.

Though it seems like the future White Spike threat has been eliminated, director Chris McKay opened up about a possible sequel to The Tomorrow War.

“I hope that Amazon wants to make a sequel to this movie because I think it’ll be a lot of fun,” the director told MovieWeb. “I think there’s a lot of story on the table from a time travel perspective, from a world-building perspective from the White Spikes. So, there’s a lot of things that I think we can mess with and have a lot of fun.”

Since the queen was able to escape, many fans think it's possible that other female White Spikes also could have survived the bombing and are currently laying their eggs. Additionally, some fans believe a follow-up film could introduce a whole new alien species that the world is forced to fight.

“It’s like what they did with The Purge or something like that, where it’s like they start with a really interesting concept and now the next movie and the next movie get to sort of play with those things and explore those things and blow them out," the director continued. "To me, there’s a lot more to this world, even from a design standpoint, from the stuff we designed and stuff like that. So, I’m hoping that that’s something they’ll [Amazon] will want to do.”
