Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead for The Accountant, read ahead at your own risk!

This weekend proved that Ben Affleck definitely doesn't need a cape and cowl to be a total badass on the silver screen. All he needs is a gun, a coffee thermos, and some Expo markers. Gavin O'Connor's The Accountant handily won the weekend box office, and served as a phenomenal tale of a truly unorthodox action hero. In the process, we saw Christian Wolff become one of the most unique and intriguing action movie heroes in recent memory.

With that in mind, we think that there's definitely more story to tell. The final moments of The Accountant saw Christian Wolff drive off into the sunset to take part in untold new missions, and the opportunities for an Accountant sequel now seem endless. We've put together a list of reasons why we need to see a follow-up to The Accountant. Check out our arguments and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Now let's get started with Gavin O'Connor's recent comments about a potential sequel...

The Accountant

The Director Already Has An Idea

The Accountant features a pretty open ending, suggesting that Christian Wolff can now go on any number of adventures around the world to cook books and generally lay a serious beat down on some well-deserving criminals. There's ample opportunity for a sequel here, and director Gavin O'Connor already realizes this. During a recent interview to promote the release of The Accountant, O'Connor laid out his vision for a second film, and it revolves around Christian using his lethal abilities to break up a human trafficking ring selling children into sex slavery. Not only does this idea up the stakes for Mr. Wolff in a major way, but it also feels narratively and thematically relevant to everything that has preceded it. If that's the story, then we're completely on board.
