The Ultimate Showdown: Why John Wick Almost Took His Last Shot in Chapter 3
Despite Reeves’ obvious ardor for the franchise, he had almost considered resigning from the John Wick persona after the third installment. The director, Chad Stahelski, disclosed that he and Reeves had entertained the thought of bidding adieu to the saga after John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, concluding the journey of its eponymous hitman protagonist on a cliffhanger. This was ostensibly due to both gentlemen feeling rather depleted after churning out three John Wick flicks in rather rapid succession.
Yet, Reeves and Stahelski ultimately succumbed, agreeing to undertake a fourth John Wick excursion that would ultimately resolve the open-ended conclusion of Chapter 3. They also seemed to channel their sense of weariness into John Wick: Chapter 4’s narrative. Co-writer Shay Hatten recently revealed that in Chapter 4, Wick will begin to question the purpose of his relentless quest for vengeance. Despite his ire and fervor, he’ll begin to ponder the value of his life and whether there is any merit in his continued efforts.
With its release date set for March 24th, John Wick: Chapter 4 promises to offer fans of the franchise an enthralling and thought-provoking continuation of Wick’s saga.
