John Wick is a film that no one ever expected. And once it did come out, it just blew everyone away. Keanu Reeves was finally back in action, and he was as dangerous as ever before. Are you someone who is a huge fan of action movies, or movies with a ton of violence in general? Or perhaps you’re a fan of the actor Keanu Reeves himself. Or maybe you’re just someone who is just looking for a nice movie to watch on a lazy weekend. Whatever the case might be, John Wick has something for everyone and is one of the most famous and well loved franchises around the world. I personally just love it for the obscene amount of fun that it offers. And with the announcement of John Wick 4, my happiness was taken to different heights. And you can probably imagine why.
John Wick is unlike any action movie that came before it. It does have all the signatures of a proper action movie, but under that, it is a tale of a man who has been broken by the world and the people beside him. The way that it seamlessly blends mythology with reality while offering angry gun toting action at the same time is nothing short of admirable, and needless to say, quite enjoyable. And the second and third movies in the franchise proved to be nothing short of the standards that the first movie had already set, which further added to my excitement for a new John Wick movie. After the dramatic ending of John Wick 3, I’m sure you’re curious about what John Wick 4 brings to the table. So without much further ado, let us talk all about John Wick 4.

John Wick 4: The Plot
Unfortunately, we don’t really have an official statement on the plot of John Wick 4 as of yet. The movie is still in the works and the plot has been kept under wraps by the filmmakers. But we can still make assumptions about the way that things are going to be. Given the way John Wick 3 ended, which saw John getting completely separate from The High Table, the organization of super assassins, and the chaos that ensued, John Wick 4 is expected to continue directly after the ending and pick up right where it left. The High Table currently believes that John Wick is dead, given the fact that they saw Winston shooting him off the roof of the building. Little do they know that he’s being taken care of by the Bowery King and nursed back to health.
John Wick 4 is expected to lift right off from here and continue John’s journey for vengeance against those who wronged him. Laurence Fishburne, the Bowery King, also stated, “I read the script. It’s really, really cool. As much as it’s the same world as the other three films, it’s just deeper. It’s much deeper in terms of the code of the assassin and the relationship that he has with one character in particular…is really the heart and soul of it.” And I completely believe each word that Fishburne says. So I’m really excited about the plot of the film.
Also, spoiler alert, but John Wick 4 isn’t really going to have the nice ending that some fans might be expecting. That much has been made pretty clear by Chad Stahelski. “John may survive all this shit, but at the end of it, there’s no happy ending. He’s got nowhere to go. Honestly, I challenge you right now, here’s a question to you: How do you f***ing want me to end it? Do you think he’s going to ride off into the f***ing sunset? He’s killed 300 f***ing people and he’s just going to [walk away], everything’s okay? He’s just going to fall in love with a love interest? If you’re this f***ing guy, if this guy really exist, how is this guy’s day going to end? He’s f***ed for the rest of his life. It’s just a matter of time.”
So given all that, there is going to be a lot to look forward to in terms of the plot of John Wick 4. And I’m really excited about it and really looking forward to it.

John Wick 4: Characters and Casting
This is a particularly interesting topic in terms of John Wick movies. In John Wick 4, Keanu Reeves, the legendary actor famous for starring in the Matrix, is going to be reprising his role as the legendary assassin John Wick, and there is going to be a lot more action coming in from the man. Joining him, Ian McShane is going to be reprising the role of Winston, the man who shot John Wick off the building, and who is the owner of the grand establishment New York Continental Hotel. The pair is going to be quite amazing on screen given their chemistry, and it is still not clear how Ian McShane is going to be reprising his role. Winston’s intentions are still unclear, and that is going to be fodder for the next movie and raises questions for the movie to answer.
Laurence Fishburne, who starred alongside Reeves in the Matrix, will again be joining him on the set here, playing the role of the Bowery King, who is similar to John in the way that he is the leader of an underground assassin gang. Lance Reddick is going to be playing the role of Charon, who is the Continental’s concierge, while Skarsguard is expected to star in a role that not a lot has been revealed for. Marko Zaror is also expected to make an appearance here and is expected to add a touch of action to the movie.
Skarsgard also stated, “I think the movies are very entertaining. I’ve always been a fan of these kinds of over-the-top, exploitive action movies…Chad reached out to me and I met him a few times, and I really liked him. It was a really fun role. I’m not gonna go into detail …what it is, but it was a fun role and a fun world. I like the movies. I think they’re entertaining and it is something that I haven’t really done before. That’s always something that does inspire me, for whatever it is. It’s like, ‘Okay, this is a project or genre or something that I haven’t done, so let’s try it out and let’s have fun within those genre constraints.’ So, I’m really looking forward to it.”
Donnie Yen from Ip Man, Scott Adkins from Ninja, and Hiroyuki Sanada from Mortal Kombat are also expected to join the cast and add to the action and the drama for the film. Joining them are Shamier Anderson, Clancy Brown, and making her film debut, Rina Sawayama.
Donnie Yen also had some really good words for Keanu Reeves and Chad Stahelski, stating that they are both lovely men with big hearts. He went on to state that Keanu Reeves had a wonderful soul and that Stahelski is a very knowledgeable man who feels every film that he makes and understands everything. Given all that, we can already see the way the movie is shaping up to be, and it is really exciting in every way possible.

John Wick 4: Release Date
This is sort of an important topic, especially for the fans. John Wick 4 has been delayed for quite a while now, owing to the COVID pandemic, and other restrictions. The movie was initially announced back when John Wick 3 came out and was almost immediately confirmed to be in the works. And now, a few months back, in June, John Wick 4 had started the shooting for the film. There was also talk of a John Wick 5 being shot at the same time, but it couldn’t be arranged because of the pandemic.
Now, the release date for John Wick 4 was initially set to be May 21, 2021, but it couldn’t make it in time owing to the pandemic restriction, and Keanu Reeves scheduling conflicts with the Matrix Resurrections. So now, the new release date for the movie has been announced to be May 27, 2022. That is more than a year late. But it is what it is.
In the meanwhile, Keanu Reeves is bringing back the Matrix franchise back to all of us. Reprising his role as Neo, he is going to return as the One, and we are all excited for it.
