Warning: Spoiler Alert
If you haven’t watched “John Wick: Chapter 4” yet please avoid reading ahead.
John Wick has been a force to be reckoned with in the world of action movies. From his debut in the first film, we have seen him take on countless assassins, all in the name of revenge. However, the latest installment in the franchise, John Wick: Chapter 4, has finally killed off the “excommunicado”.
Killed in his fight against Caine and Marquis Vincent de Gramont at the end of the movie, John Wick leaves knowing that all his vengeance has been achieved. According to director Chad Stahelski, this might be the end of the John Wick franchise. “We’re going to give John Wick a rest,” Stahelski told The Hollywood Reporter. “Keanu and I will take the long trip to Tokyo, we’ll sit in the Imperial Hotel Scotch Bar and go, ‘What do you think?’ We’ll have a couple 20-year-old whiskies and write some ideas on napkins. If those ideas stick, maybe we’ll make a movie.”
While the John Wick franchise may be taking a break, the John Wick extended universe is just getting started. Ballerina, a spinoff film featuring Ana de Armas, is already in production, and Reeves will have a cameo in the film. Additionally, there are rumors of The Continental, a television series for Amazon Prime Video.
What Happens Next? Is There A Post-Credits Scene?
Yes! The most exciting part of the future of the John Wick universe may be the post-credits scene in Chapter 4. The scene features Rina Sawayama’s new character, Akira, seeking revenge against Donnie Yen’s Caine for murdering her father. According to co-writer Michael Finch in an interview with Polygon, “Her story is John Wick’s story, in a lot of ways.”
So, while we say goodbye to John Wick, it seems that his legacy will continue on. We may be getting more stories in the John Wick universe, just with new characters taking up the mantle. R.I.P. John Wick, and here’s to hoping that the rest of the John Wick extended universe lives up to the high standards set by the franchise.
