John Wick 3 left things at a major cliffhanger. The plot twist turned friends into enemies. The High Table managed to turn the tide of battle. John Wick was left bloodied and bruised. With no allies left on his side, he got an unlikely friend in The Bowery king, who ended up joining forces with him. There was speculation that Laurence Fishburne might be returning for another John Wick movie.
And we just got an official confirmation from the actor himself. The Bowery king is coming back in John Wick 4. And he is about to turn the world of the assassins upside down. The High Table will never see what’s coming for them.
It was not long ago when Fishburne was not even sure whether he would be included in John Wick 4. But in an interview with Collider a few days ago, Fishburne claimed he is now a part of the movie. he said and we quote:
“I should be going to Berlin within another couple of months or so.”
Further questions on the fourth John Wick movie led to mixed reaction comments from Fishburne. He was careful not to divulge any critical information. The actor had this to say:
“I read the script. It’s really, really cool. As much as it’s the same world as the other three films, it’s just deeper. It’s much deeper in terms of the code of the assassin and the relationship that he has with one character in particular… is really the heart and soul of it.”
The Bowery King & John Wick Are Out For Blood
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum showed us that Winston and John Wick’s relationship formed the core of the story. Their relationship ended in a rather spectacular fashion when Winston betrayed John Wick. Maybe John Wick 4 will give us the renewed relationship between John Wick and the Bowery king as the new core of the plotline.
In John Wick 3, the High Table accuses the Bowery King of harboring the enemy and marks him as an enemy. His entire organization is destroyed and the Bowery King is forced to kneel to them. But by their despicable act, the High Table has made a formidable enemy in the form of Fishburne’s character. And he approaches John Wick to help assist him in taking down the High Table and establish a new world order of assassins.
What is interesting to note is that this is the first official team up between Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne in an action movie since The Matrix trilogy. John Wick is out for blood. And the Bowery King knows the way to help quench wick’s bloodlust. It’s a macth made in heaven. Or is it hell??
A bloodbath is coming.
