His response was blunt but it makes sense for the franchise a certain way. Joe Manganiello, who played Big Dick Richie in both Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL, was already part of the gang’s final worrah in the second film. At the beginning of XXL some members of the band had already moved on and then the remaining kings of Tampa decided to travel to put on a more big show. It may have been the only sequel for the franchise but it was also a movie written in a way that implied that things for the characters involved changed.
