Don't Expect The John Wick Franchise To Have A Happy Ending
After the brutal fall off the Continental Hotel at the end of “John Wick 3 — Parabellum,” there probably isn’t much more abuse Keanu Reeves’ unstoppable assassin can take without turning the character invincible. Both Reeves and director Chad Stahelski agree that John Wick’s story is nearing its end, but the director warns fans not to expect a happy ending for the assassin.
As it stands, Wick’s journey will conclude after the fifth movie, with Stahleski adding, “John may survive all this sh*t, but at the end of it, there’s no happy ending. He’s got nowhere to go.” The franchise has always maintained some semblance of realism, but with all the new action sequences and antagonists, it’s difficult to see how even one as skilled as John Wick could survive.
Stahelski knows Wick's future is grim, adding, “Do you think he’s going to ride off into the f***ing sunset? He’s killed 300 f***ing people and he’s just going to [walk away], everything’s okay? He’s just going to fall in love with a love interest? If you’re this f***ing guy, if this guy really exist[ed], how is this guy’s day going to end? He's f***ed for the rest of his life. It's just a matter of time.”
