Although John Wick is the most invulnerable and undoubtedly the deadliest assassin that has been seen yet, Tom Cruise‘s Vincent appears to be a bit more bad*ss than Keanu Reeves’ on-screen character. Apparently, Cruise’s character from Collateral has the sheer ability to trick and deceive many of his targets to walk right into his traps. Not to mention, Vincent would have a pretty good chance of beating Wick in a firefight.

Matt Damon In Jason Bourne

Further comes Matt Damon‘s killing machine Jason Bourne who was broken by the CIA and remolded into the perfect assassin. The ideal killer from the Bourne franchise is most likely to be able to kill John Wick, as he is not only a weapons expert but also highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat. 

Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron‘s deadly MI6 agent character, Lorraine Broughton, from the 2017 film Atomic Blonde, seems to be just as deadly as Keanu Reeves’ assassin character. Being one of the organization’s top-level operators, Theron’s character is most likely to beat Wick at his own game. 

Jean Reno As Léon In Léon: The Professional

Jean Reno‘s Italian hitman character from the 1994 film Léon: The Professional, appears to be another competition for John Wick. Being one of the most well-known hitmen, Léon’s incredibly deadly ability to operate in the shadows could work as a great advantage for him when pitted against Wick.

Carlos Gallardo’s El Mariachi

Robert Rodriguez’ main antagonist El Mariachi played by Carlos Gallardo is also an incredibly skilled killer, who is almost as unstoppable as John Wick when it comes to seeking revenge. This similar motivation with nearly equal skills could make El Mariachi and Wick great onscreen competitors.

The infamous female character who could beat the sh*t out of Keanu Reeves’ assassin character is Uma Thurman‘s The Bride from Kill Bill. The yellow-clad martial artist and trained killer is incredibly skilled in using swords and other sharp metal weapons. Thus, when pitted against Wick, The Bride can take him down with her supernatural levels of strength and deadliness. 

Chloë Grace Moretz As Hit-Girl

Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass

The Kick-Ass series assassin, Hit-Girl, although a child could easily take down John Wick. Being incredibly capable of killing almost anyone despite her age, Hit-Girl probably won’t be losing the fight against Wick, due to her familiarity with almost any weapon, and her connection with mobsters and supervillains. 

The British Secret Agent James Bond

It is quite possible that 007 is a highly-trained killer, considering how flawlessly he takes down maniacal supervillains. Being one of the greatest secret agents in cinematic history, James Bond can turn the fight almost deadly if competes against Keanu Reeves’ onscreen assassin character. With his access to all kinds of gadgets, Bond can easily take down Wick for breakfast. 

Agent 47 From Hitman Series

The main character, Agent 47 from the Hitman series of video games, is considered the world’s deadliest assassin in the Hitman universe. Although Agent 47 and John Wick work in their respective franchises, both have a similar quality of turning anything into a weapon. Thus, with such similar qualities, both can be each other’s nemesis. 

DC’s Bloodsport From The Suicide Squad

Finally, John Wick’s biggest competitor would be DC’s Bloodsport from The Suicide Squad. While Wick is a skilled assassin, Bloodsport is the craziest killer who keeps constantly targeting metahumans. After putting a bullet into an invincible man like Superman, there’s no way that Bloodsport can’t kill Wick.
