Keanu Reeve’s John Wick is infamous for his skills with weapons and can even kill a guy with a pencil. On the other hand, Denzel Washington’s last feat as Robert McCall has been a wonderful ride and fans can’t believe that the celebrated franchise is already over. Known for his chilling actions and brutal combat skills, McCall in the Equalizer franchise is a spectacle to witness for action lovers.
So what would happen if the two worlds collide? Director of the Equalizer franchise, Antoine Fuqua has some beans to spill about the possibility of such an extraordinary event.
Antoine Fuqua Speaks Up About Possible Robert McCall-John Wick Team-Up
A team-up between The Equalizer and John Wick would be nothing short of a cinematic spectacular. Not only would it be a thrilling collaboration but it would provide action fans an exceptional experience, that has never been done before.
Robert McCall is a former government operative with a strategic mindset that makes him a formidable force and improvisation genius. While John Wick is a legendary hitman known for his unmatched precision and martial arts prowess, he is a perfect killing machine.
Furthermore to witness Denzel Washington and Keanu Reeves come together and star in an action-thriller would have fans feeling like they won a lottery. So when Antoine Fuqua was asked which fictional character of the action genre would he have McCall team up with, he stated,
“That’s an interesting question. I think it would be a lot of fun with John Wick. They are very different. If McCall needs some weapons or some guns, I would let John do that. When it comes to up-close brutality, let McCall handle that. They are very different.”
Even though the Equalizer 3 was Denzel Washington’s last appearance as Robert McCall, perhaps if such a crossover were to take place we might get a chance to see him again as McCall.
Equalizer And John Wick Team-Up: A Dream Come True For Fans
Both Robert McCall and John Wick are fan favorite action heroes, known for their remarkable ‘killing’ skills. Both have a particular style that makes them different from other characters of the action world and to have them come forth in a single movie would truly be a dream come true for fans.
Not only would it be an action-filled odyssey but it would be interesting to see how both of them communicate and interact with each other since both have complex opposite personalities. However, the possibility of such a collaboration is not only hard but challenging since it would need a compelling storyline and both actors on board to make it happen.
The Equalizer 3 is in theatres now.
