Based on the narrative picked from one of the most popular video game franchises, Tom Holland starrer film, “Uncharted,” follows his character Nathan Drake (Tom Holland), who teams up with Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to look for a 500-year-old treasure. The film shows how the duo fights the forces of the antagonist, Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), to finally get their hands on the treasure.
The first post-credit scene reveals that Nathan’s brother Sam (the face of the actor is not revealed) is not dead but locked up in a prison cell. He has not only survived the shootout (mentioned by Sully) that took place before the events of the film, but has also been sending his brother Nathan postcards. Neither does he know, nor do we know whether his postcards are even being delivered. And provided that it is from Sam, there has to be something more in the postcards than just messages. Perhaps he hints at his location so that Nathan can come and get him. Hopefully, a sequel will provide the answers to his current state and location.
Here it is important to mention that Sam’s absence did contribute to Nathan looking up to Sully as a brother figure. Nathan didn’t tell Nathan that Sam apparently died, and this did have an effect on Nathan, and he almost cut himself off from the mission. However, the feeling of bringing the mission to an end, of which his brother was a part, is what made him stay back. But now that we know that Sam is indeed alive, a sequel, if it’s made, will probably bring Nathan face-to-face with the fact that his brother is alive. This might even make Nathan blame Sully for lying to him, although Sully himself might not have known that Sam was alive. So this might cause a rift in the relationship between Nathan and Sully. Also, it might reveal what actually happened with Sam when he was working with Sully and how he was captured, and by whom.
The second post-credits scene shows Nathan having an exchange with a guy named Gage. Nathan gives his Francis Drake ring in exchange for a Nazi map. While Gage is a new character not seen before in the video game either, his employer, Roman, seems to be none other than British treasure collector Gabriel Roman. Roman is the antagonist of “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” the first installment of the video-game franchise. And since Roman wants to keep both the ring and the map, both being clues that will lead to another treasure, this scene seems to be setting up a sequel that will have the plot of the game’s first installment. In it, Nathan Drake goes in search of El Dorado in the Amazon.
Nathan and Sully are about to escape when they are caught by another person, to whom they surrender. It is not revealed to the viewers who the person is. This person could be Elena Fisher, who, in “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” is the one who funds the expedition and accompanies Nathan to the Amazon. She is also Nathan’s future love interest in the game. Or, the person can also be Chloe Frazer (Sophia Taylor Ali), whom Nathan deliberately sent off in the wrong direction for the treasure in the film; she could be back and certainly not in the mood to be tricked this time. Chloe Frazer is also a character from the game and was introduced in the second installment, i.e., “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.” A treasure hunter hailing from Australia, Chloe’s skills are well-known in the criminal underworld. The second installment sent Nathan in search of the lost city of Shambala, or Shangri-La, in the Himalayas. Remember The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor? Yes, that Shangri-La.
There are high chances that “Uncharted 2” will, in all probability, take Nathan and Sully to Amazon. What awaits to be seen is how Sam is brought in and whether we will get to meet Nathan’s ladylove, Elena, or have to make do with Chloe (Nathan’s secondary love interest in the game).
