The time for the Baba Yaga to return has come as John Wick 4 drops its trailer and sets the internet on fire. The franchise ended its note on a cliffhanger by betraying Keanu Reeves’ John Wick at the end of the third part of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
Keanu Reeves is all set to return to the franchise that loves dogs once again as he prepares for the role of Baba Yaga, the killer of the Russian mafia.
Keanu Reeves Leaves the Fans Dumbstruck With John Wick 4
What appears to be a bigger and badder (better) underworld, the trailer starts with John Wick sitting in a church talking about his deceased wife. The trailer further reveals that the rules of the Continental Hotel will be changing under new management (no, not Peaky Blinders).
Following the betrayal, it appears that Ian McShane’s Winston is with the protagonist as he offers him solutions on how to get out alive. Along with the serious tone of the movie, the trailer also features some heavy action scenes set in different landscapes.
The trailer got the best response from fans that anyone can think of as the people got hyped up for their beloved actor’s return.

Keanu Reeve’s dialogue about him needing a gun became an instant hit with the fans rejoicing at the return of their original hero. The film will also focus heavily on a form of closure for the character of John Wick that the people have been wanting desperately.
Will This Be The End For Keanu Reeve’s John Wick?
Although there has been no confirmed news, people have been anticipating a John Wick 5 even before the announcement of John Wick 4! After much success with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, director Chad Stahelski spoke with Collider regarding any details on a number five project.
“As of right now it is the studio’s intention to continue the franchise. And look, I’m not going to we’ve all seen directors and producers where they go, ‘Yes. I don’t know. I guess I’ll do five,’ or it’s like, ‘Oh, yeah, yeah.’”
The director then went on to reveal how John Wick 1 came to be and how it still affects their lives, nine years later.
“And I’m just, ‘Look, man. ‘John Wick 1’ was a goof. We made it as a fun little action movie that we’d like to see.” And the fact that now nine years later, it’s changed our lives. It changed my life. It changed Keanu’s life. It’s changed a lot of other people’s lives. And people still want to see more.”
John Wick 1 was a huge success that made the studios create John Wick Chapter 2 and Parabellum. There are also reports of Ana de Armas starring in a John Wick spinoff titled Ballerina that will take place in the same universe. John Wick: Chapter 4 is expected to release on March 23rd, 2023 in theaters across the US.
