Michael B. Jordan’s Without Remorse is finally here thanks to Amazon.

Which means Jordan’s debut as one of Tom Clancy’s most beloved protagonists also arrives.

Originally intended to release last year, COVID led Paramount to sell the rights….

Giving audiences the chance to finally see Jordan as John Clark on streaming.

As Clancy’s other, non-Jack Ryan protagonist, Clark is a hardened Navy SEAL we’ve seen before.

In the margins, Clark was previously played by Willem Dafoe in Clear and Present Danger (1994).

A shadowy expat with a past, Dafoe’s Clark was the real badass who did the action hero things Ryan can’t.

But he never got a movie, though not for lack of trying.

In 2002, Liev Schriber played a young, more ruthless Clark in The Sum of All Fears.

And the character’s become a gamer favorite thanks to the Rainbow Six franchise.

Throughout the Tom Clancy video games, Clark is the team leader of an international special forces team called ‘Rainbow.’

Yet Clark nor Rainbow Six (originally a 1998 novel) have never made it to the screen.

Paramount tried, first developing Without Remorse in 1993 with Keanu Reeves in mind.

Now an adaptation of the 1993 novel that details Clark’s origin story is finally here with Michael B. Jordan.

As a younger, more brutal version of the character, Jordan is out for revenge, after Russian agents murder his pregnant wife.…

Heaven help them, because John won’t.
