Although the original John wick Turned a lot of heads with its over the top action and brutal revenge story, the franchise has only upped the ante since. John Wick: Chapter 2 Y John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum introduced even stranger stories and memorable characters, building the series’ savage world of assassins and betrayals in fun new ways. That strategy has been very successful in John wick, setting a precedent for the modern action movie genre that many have since drawn inspiration from.
Now, it looks like another classic action star could join the cast of John wick 4. According to a report by The IlluminerdiWesley Snipes is currently in talks to join the film as a new unnamed swordsman character, possibly in homage to his famous role as Blade, the Marvel vampire hunter. Adding Snipes to the already stellar cast of the film would be a great move, setting up some exciting fights from him, either head-to-head or back-to-back with Reeves. At this time, however, Snipes’ involvement in the project has not been confirmed.
The future of John wick is insured for at least the next several years, with a fifth film already in development for later John wick 4 releases. That means any character or plot introduced in the next film could also be part of the plot of John Wick: Chapter 5. Given all the absurdly entertaining ground the franchise has covered in its first three installments, the idea of more long-term storylines is establishing itself in John Wick: Chapter 4 it is very promising.
With so many different action stars supposedly joining John wick 4, the series begins to look like another smash hit from the modern action genre: the Expendables. Both franchises have relied heavily on their goofy action, recognizable stars, and nearly invincible heroes. The addition of Yen and the possible addition of Snipes are driving John wick closer to a suitable action set. Of course, even if Snipes is chosen, there is no evidence that he is on the side of good. And with a title like John wick, the franchise will likely remain a primarily solo journey for Reeves’ character. Still, the addition of so many other stars in John wick 4 it’s an exciting prospect.
