DC Comics has produced a wide variety of animated movies featuring their iconic superheroes and villains. But only every now and then does one of those animated comic book productions make it to theaters.

John Wick Chapter 4 has a new cast member. Rina Sawayama, a Japanese-British singer-songwriter and model, will co-star along with Keanu Reeves in the action sequel from director Chad Stahelski. It’s not clear how big Sawayama’s role is, or who she’s playing, but she’ll be making her feature debut in the flick. Production on John Wick 4 will begin this summer in France, Germany, and Japan.

Back in August of last year, John Wick fans received the fantastic news that there would be at least two more John Wick sequels coming down the pipeline. In fact, John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 were slated to shoot back-to-back because the idea that director Chad Stahelski and star Keanu Reeves had for the fourth film was so big that it started rolling over into another sequel. Unfortunately, Lionsgate is pumping the brakes a little bit on John Wick sequels, opting to shoot only John Wick 4 on its own starting in June. Read More »

For three decades now, audiences have been falling in love over and over again with Keanu Reeves. We believe him when he’s saving the world, we believe him when he’s morally ambiguous, and in a few cases, we even believe when he’s the villain. He’s an actor who can transform himself, even when he remains so distinctly, well, Keanu Reeves.
Reeves continues to evolve with the times and only sharpens his skills. What’s not to love about an actor whose movies have blown minds repeatedly as his magnetism and depth deepen with time? Any artist at the stage of Reeves’ career and success who continues growing is doing something right. What has remained from the early days of his acting career is his sincerity and commitment. That sincerity, in particular, is infectious and a part of why audiences and filmmakers remain captivated by him.
With Bill & Ted Face the Music now in theaters and available on VOD, we interviewed directors who’ve worked with Reeves and asked them to share their favorite stories from their collaboration. Here’s what Richard Linklater, Christopher Kenneally, Matthew Ross, Chad Stahelski, Dean Parisot, Francis Lawrence, and Rebecca Miller had to say about their time with the one and only Keanu Reeves.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Bill & Ted Face the Music is a very kind-hearted movie. There’s not a single mean-spirited bone in its body. With its unironic heroes, its passion for music, and most importantly, the love between best friends and family, Bill & Ted Face the Music appreciates the best in life.
Whatever obstacles came in the way of the sequel, director Dean Parisot and everyone involved kept going. Parisot, known most famously for the classic Galaxy Quest, delivered a pure sequel with its heart in such the right place. The director, an NYU graduate who won an Oscar for best live-action short film in 1988, told us why he never gave up on Bill & Ted 3 and more.

Many actors get the honor of playing at least one iconic character in their career, but Keanu Reeves has gotten to play three. Not only that, but Reeves will get to reprise all three of those characters in highly anticipated upcoming sequels. In the press tour for the first upcoming sequel, Bill and Ted Face the Music, Reeves spoke about his other two memorable characters, John Wick from the John Wick series and Neo from The Matrix, and answered the question that everyone wants to know: who would win in a fight? The answer is truly excellent (or bogus, depending on your preference).
