The coming-of-age story is likely to pay off big in future installments for the MCU.

His latest film and first one in four years is The Card Counter, the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler (played by Oscar Isaac) who is haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions. The film is executive produced by Scorsese and also stars Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe.
