Steven Seagal stuns as the next assassin hero in a new trailer based on the John Wick franchise. The development of AI and digital effects has helped content creators show their craft on a grander scale in recent years.
And utilizing said developments to their full potential a digital creator team on YouTube has brought the ultimate contemporary of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick. And that contemporary happens to be none other than Hollywood’s action legend Steven Seagal.
Although Seagal has definitely fallen from grace, this assassin version of him seems highly entertaining for the fans of the parody genre.
Steven Seagal becomes the next John Wick hero
Taking up a challenge to seemingly prove a point of whether just anyone can pull off Keanu Reeves headlining the $991 million John Wick franchise, content creation team Corridor Crew published a stunning trailer depicting Steven Seagal as the new assassin hero of the franchise.
Basically, they took clips from ten of Steven Seagal’s movies to edit and replace them with the first three John Wick movies. The result was obviously a highly engrossing, entertaining, and hilarious suit named John Thick worthy of the franchise.
In fact, Seagal trying to exact revenge on the ones responsible for demolishing his favorite chair made the audience quite invested in the storyline waiting to see if the hero can get the justice he deserves.
Well, although it is evident that Steven Seagal is not going to make it in the canon John Wick universe any time soon, the parody trailer has the fans waiting to see if they can ever watch the full movie for a good laugh.
John Wick‘s Future in Turmoil
As Steven Seagal is unfortunately not sweeping in to save the franchise, John Wick‘s future seems to still be in turmoil. Although Chad Stahelski initially announced that a fifth sequel would be happening, after multiple rewrites and Keanu Reeves’ unwillingness to continue the franchise for now at least, seems to have put that on hold.
Thankfully, though, Reeves is coming back to reprise his role, possibly for the last time in next year’s Ballerina starring Ana De Armas. As it is the first spin-off movie of the franchise, it can be expected that there might be sequels of this movie in the future.
In fact, The Continental: From the World of John Wick a spin-off TV series based on the origin of the assassin hotels is also releasing later this year, although Reeves will be missing from the action in that.
As such, although the future of the franchise seems to be stable for now, Reeves’ return is still a big question. Now whether Chad Stahelski and Peter Safran will take this opportunity to introduce Steven Seagal’s John Thick for a cameo is something to be seen in time.
Although he might fail to provide Reeves’ cut-throat actions to the audience, they will still have a good time for the humor in this intense franchise for a change.
The Continental is expected to release on December 22nd, 2023 while Ballerina dances to the theaters on June 7th, 2024.
