LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'John Wick' has created a universe of its own. While 'John Wick: Chapter 4' took the box office by storm and crossed many milestones, it did dishearten fans by the end of it. Although it was hard for fans to see their favorite action hero die, there is still hope he might return in Chapter 5. Speaking of another movie, Director Chad Stahelski has confirmed the possibility of Chapter 5 making it into the theatres, but isn't sure what direction he wants the movie to go. 

Keanu Reeves' self-named assassin finally found a path to freedom from the High Table in 'John Wick: Chapter 4' by taking out the antagonist Marquis de Gramont, in exchange for his own life, with Winston having Wick buried next to his late wife. There's more to this story, we can sense it.

'I'm super grateful for that opportunity'

After the massive success of 'John Wick: Chapter 4,' Director Chad Stahelski sat down to discuss his experience working on the film with Reeves and what he expects from the franchise. Some time into the interview, Stahelski let in on a secret about the 'John Wick' franchise having chapter 5 and him being grateful to be working on such a wonderful project with such artistic people. The director also shared that every movie was a path of unlearning and re-learning everything and that they always wanted to do better than they did last time and said, "I'm super grateful for that opportunity, and if it does come to fruition sometime in the future... I don't know what John Wick 5 is right now. I may have thoughts, ideas, and fragments of stuff, but I think I need a little time to breathe and see how this one does. All I see when I watch are my mistakes and shortcomings. I should have been a better director. I should have been better here. I just need time to process that, grow creatively, and work my craft in probably some other fields. [Then] I'll take what I learned and maybe make something better than I've already done. My biggest goal is that [hopefully] you love them all, but that hopefully you see the evolution. That the crew and I, my stunt team and Keanu, learn something. We tried to not make the same mistakes, we tried to get a little better, and we tried to expand in ways that are interesting." shared Stahelski according to Screen Rant

Stahelski also stated that 'John Wick' chapter 5 is a possibility, in spite of the lead character's death in the movie. He further stated that neither he nor Reeves will turn down the opportunity to work on the film and if given a chance, would probably return to the franchise. The director also stated that Reeves had made a note about returning, only if the story seemed worthwhile and if Stahelski is back in the director's chair. In the end, the question that arises with if 'John Wick' needs another chapter to the add-in franchise. and what would be the narration for it? 'John Wick: Chapter 4' might have ended on a sad note, with the lead dying, but all-in-all the franchise found a poignant way to close out its hero's story, while also leaving out branches that take the franchise away from the lead and narrates the story of other characters through spinoff movies.
