Q: I have watched and re-watched "The Equalizer" and "The Equalizer 2," starring Denzel Washington. Both movies are great. Is there any chance of an "Equalizer 3"?
A: Director Antoine Fuqua has said he had ideas for a third film after the second came out in 2018, but it's not clear if the very busy Denzel Washington would do another film; "Equalizer II" is the only sequel he has made in a long career.
But the Equalizer concept — which dates to a 1980s TV series starring Edward Woodward — is still very much alive. Queen Latifah is starring in the new CBS drama "The Equalizer," which will premiere on Feb. 7, following the Super Bowl. According to the network, Queen Latifah plays "Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills as a former CIA operative to help those with nowhere else to turn." Fans will recall that Woodward and then Washington played characters named Robert McCall.
