Given the sheer amount of Channing Tatum butt delivered unto us by the first Magic Mike, it’s hard to know exactly where director Steven Soderbergh would go with another one. We imagine there would be…stripping, of course. And probably….dancing? And…Alex Pettyfer? Yeah, that’s the ticket. Either way, we’re just thrilled to know there’s a sequel at all! “Yes, yes and yes!,” Channing Tatum enthusiastically told Glamour U.K. “We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.” Flip the script…and make it bigger? We have literally no idea what that means, but it sounds amazing. We do have a lot of ideas for possible Magic Mike 2 story lines, in case Chan and the gang are hunting for plot points:
- The entire staff of Matthew McConaughey‘s Club Xquisite collectively decides to become firefighters and must respond to a huge conflagration at the baby oil factor. Meanwhile, we’re sent to jail for even writing that sentence.
- Mistaken for regular cops outside a bachelorette party, Magic Mike and Adam have to go undercover as high school students, joining forces with Jonah Hill in order to infiltrate…oh, wait a minute. Wait one minute.
- An origin story for Joe Manganiello‘s Big D— Richie. It’s a shot-by-shot remake of Wolverine, except it stars Joe instead of Hugh Jackman and no one is wearing pants.
- Just a series of gifs of Channing Tatum opening an umbrella and thrusting.
But enough about us, what do you want to see out of Magic Mike 2? If they just reused all the footage from the first Magic Mike, do you think you’d notice? If you noticed, do you think you’d mind?
