“Bullet Prepare” is filled with a lot fast-paced chaos, you might need missed the sneaky Percy Jackson Easter egg hidden in its script. The motion film incorporates a slew of codenamed assassins, together with Ladybug (Brad Pitt), Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry), Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), The Prince (Joey King), The Wolf (Dangerous Bunny), and The Hornet (Zazie Beetz). One of many few non-murderous characters aboard the high-speed practice throughout Japan is The Son, portrayed by a long-haired, tattoo-covered Logan Lerman. Yep, that is the place the Percy Jackson reference comes into play.

The son of Russian crime lord White Dying, Lerman’s character is being escorted to Kyoto by dynamic duo Lemon and Tangerine. The previous has a love for the animated sequence “Thomas & Mates,” usually evaluating its humanoid trains to the persona traits of these he crosses paths with. Upon assembly The Son, Lemon quips that he is just like Percy, Thomas the Tank Engine’s accident-prone pal, inserting a sticker of the inexperienced locomotive on The Son to formally model him.

The point out is temporary, however for followers who fell in love with Lerman as Poseidon’s son within the short-lived Percy Jackson book-to-movie franchise, it is a pleasant joke to relish in because the unrelenting massacre ensues. “Bullet Prepare” screenwriter Zak Olkewicz may’ve simply chosen one in all Thomas’ different engine friends, like James or Edward, to be The Son’s equal, so we’re assuming the nod was on goal.

Although Lerman starred within the 2010 film “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” and its 2013 sequel, “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” the actor is not reprising his position because the Greek demigod for Disney+’s forthcoming adaptation of the e book sequence. 13-year-old Walker Scobell will as an alternative play the titular lead, alongside Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri as Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood, respectively, amongst different lately introduced stars.

When requested whether or not followers can count on him to make a cameo within the present, Lerman instructed The Hollywood Reporter, “It is an attention-grabbing query as a result of, may you? Certain. However, I am not. I am not. [It would] simply rely on sure components, numerous issues, however most significantly the standard of the script and the position. However they have not talked to me, they do not need me in it, I do not assume. I in all probability would’ve heard one thing by now. However both manner, who cares? It is superior that they are making it, and I am excited to see them do it.” Maybe he is pulling an Andrew Garfield and fibbing about his involvement, and the “Bullet Prepare” joke was a delicate manner of teasing it? We are able to solely hope.
