Interestingly, the conclusion of John Wick 4 left fans with more questions than answers. The film hinted at John’s demise in a Parisian duel, but his actual fate remained shrouded in mystery.


Some speculate that this uncertainty was deliberate, possibly leaving room for John’s renewal or a peaceful retirement after settling his debt with The High Table.

Initially planning to shoot both John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 back-to-back, the team decided to take a step back, prioritizing a compelling narrative over a quick sequel.

The director emphasized the need for a substantial reason to resurrect the beloved character, respecting the intelligence of the loyal audience. He revealed on the Happy Sad Confused podcast,


“If you asked [Keanu] right now, he’d say f*ck yeah. But, then he’d look and go Well, what is it? I have no f*cking clue. Look man, we’re going to do our other stuff for a little bit but if…an idea hit me within 30 seconds I’d be on the phone with Keanu and we’d be riffing.”

Further, the stuntmen added,

“I don’t think we bring John Wick back without a real reason. It can’t just be a hook, it’s got to draw people back in. Cause I think most of the audience would like to see Keanu back they just don’t want to be treated like they’re idiots.”

As details about the fifth installment slowly surface, fan anticipation reaches unparalleled heights. Social media buzzes with discussions and speculations about this intriguing revelation.
