Polar: Netflix Release Date, Plot, Cast & Trailer

Jacob Robinson What's on Netflix Avatar

Hannibal + Snake + John Wick = Mads Mikkelson as The Black Kaiser in the upcoming Netflix film Polar. Arriving later this month, here is everything you need to know about Polar’s imminent release.

Polar is an upcoming Netflix film based on the webcomic series of the same name created by Victor Santos. The popular webcomic series originally had no dialogue and the story was emphasized in the detail of its art. The dialogue was later added in when Dark Horse comics adapted the webcomic into graphic novels. There are five novels in total with the fifth set to be released in April of this year.

What is the plot of Polar?

Retired assassin Duncan Vizla A.K.A The Black Kaiser is forced out of his peaceful retirement when attempts on his life are made. Hunted by younger and hungrier assassins, the Black Kaiser must use all of his fearsome skill to survive and to prove why he is still the greatest assassin the world has ever seen.

Polar will be centered around the story of the first novel Came from the Cold.
