Chapter 4’s ending is “mysterious,” as the producer puts it—variety

Brake alert: Spoilers ahead for “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which is now in theaters.

Is John Wick really dead? The end of “John Wick: Chapter 4” unsettles fans of the long-running action series by apparently killing off the killer of the same name. John participates in the Sunrise Duel to free himself from the High Table, with his opponent, Marquis Vincent de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård), nominating Kane (Donnie Yen) to take his place. Kane shoots John and John appears to miss Kane during the third round of the duel, but John would save his last bullet to kill Marquis instead.

And not even Keanu Reeves knows the final answer.

“I don’t know,” Reeves said, “I guess I’m going to have to rely on ‘never say never’.” Entertainment Weekly When asked if John had died or if he would return to see a fifth “John Wick” movie. “I mean, I wouldn’t have done ‘John Wick’ without him [director] Chad Stahelski. We’ll have to see what that looked like. To me, it’s really right that John Wick find peace.”

For him to somehow have his safety or freedom, that was why the movie was made.” You must have a “why”.
