In addition to the photo published by Entertainment Weekly , an unpublished shot of John Wick: Chapter 4 makes its way online thanks to Total Film :
the image portrays the protagonist ( Keanu Reeves ) in his classic black suit, while two men follow him at little distance.
Director Chad Stahelski also says that John will begin to understand the consequences of his actions:
In John Wick 4 , I would say John comes to terms with how what he does affects the people he cares about. Your actions always have consequences. And in this [film], we begin to see that John understands what the consequences are.
It is known that John aims to dismantle once and for all the excessive power of the High Table, a powerful council that governs the criminal undergrowth. To do so, he teams up with the Bowery King ( Laurence Fishburne ), who helped him in the finale of the third chapter.
John Wick discovers a way to defeat the High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face a new foe with powerful allies across the globe, and forces that turn old friends into enemies.
Chad Stahelski himself recently described the sequel as a cross between The Good, the Bad and the Ugly , Zatoichi and a Greek myth. I remind you that the Italian release is expected on March 23, 2023 .
