The most recent John Wick: Chapter 4 poster features Keanu Reeves back in action. Along with franchise veterans Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick, newcomers Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgard, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, Clancy Brown, and Shamier Anderson, Reeves is once again in charge of the star-studded cast for the eagerly awaited action movie. For John Wick: Chapter 4, Chad Stahelski is also returning to the director’s chair, working exclusively from Shay Hatten’s script and Michael Finch’s script. This is the first installment in the series that franchise founder Derek Kolstad didn’t write.
Lionsgate debuted a brand-new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster as a part of the movie’s Brazil Comic-Con experience, CCXP. The cover art for the action sequel teases Reeves’ return as the titular hitman as he sets out on his most challenging mission yet in an effort to eventually escape the control of the High Table. Look at the flyer below:
Will John Wick 4 be the last chapter?
The latest John Wick: Chapter 4 poster continues the movie’s marketing strategy by implying that the action sequel might be Reeves’ titular assassin’s last stand. The narrative suggests that John’s confrontation with Skarsgrd’s Marquis de Gramont is his final chance to thwart the High Table’s efforts to exact revenge for his killing of Santino in John Wick: Chapter 2. Given how heavily stacked the deck has been against Wick throughout the first three John Wick films, he may easily emerge from John Wick: Chapter 4 prepared for whatever lies next.
Although the new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster and most current trailer suggest that the movie might be the end of Reeves’ hero, neither the actor nor Lionsgate appear prepared to retire him. After Reeves’ commitment to The Matrix Resurrections caused production delays, the company decided to postpone its initial intention to shoot John Wick 5 back-to-back with its predecessor and instead move forward with the fourth movie first. As long as the John Wick film series continues to be popular, Reeves has frequently indicated a desire to portray the role permanently.
After John Wick: Chapter 4, the spinoff Ballerina, starring Ana de Armas, is the biggest indication of a bright future for the series. Along with the prequel series The Continental, the movie will serve as the action franchise’s second major spinoff, and it is reported that Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Anjelica Huston, and Lance Reddick will all make cameo appearances. It will be intriguing to see if Reeves survives the following movie to appear in Ballerina without confirmation of where the movie falls in the John Wick timeline. When John Wick: Chapter 4 premieres in theatres on March 24, only time will tell.
