Keanu Reeves is ready for action and surrounded by an array of guns in a new fan-made poster for John Wick: Chapter 4. After shooting its way onto the scene in 2014, the John Wick franchise has only become bigger and bloodier, pitting Reeves’ titular assassin against waves of enemies in a variety of creative set pieces. After the success of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum in 2019, Reeves is teaming with director Chad Stahelski once more for the fourth installment, which is expected to release in March. John Wick: Chapter 4 sees John attempting to take down the High Table, which brings him into contact with some formidable figures from his past.
The first John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer has already teased that the upcoming film will feature Reeves in plenty of shootouts and action scenes, and a new fan-made poster for the film from artist Nuno Sarnadas on Twitter imagines the hero gearing up for war. The official-looking poster features Reeves’ surrounded by guns, lots of guns, with the tagline “No Way Back. One Way Out,” alluding to his quest to destroy the High Table once and for all. Check out the impressive fan-made poster below:

What’s Next For Keanu Reeves In John Wick: Chapter 4?
The most recent franchise installment features Winston (Ian McShane) shooting John off of a rooftop, with Reeves’ character landing in a crumpled heap on the street below. The final scene in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum sees the injured John brought before the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) and the two join forces to wage war against the High Table. John Wick: Chapter 4 will seemingly feature a notable time jump in order to account for the healing of John’s many injuries, with the trailer making clear that Reeves’ assassin is healthy once more and out for revenge. Considering the ending to the previous film, it’s likely that the upcoming fourth installment will feature some sort of Reckoning for Winston as John isn’t likely to take kindly to betrayal.
As has been shown off in the John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer, the upcoming film will feature John coming into contact with a number of new figures, some of whom are people from his past. Donnie Yen’s assassin, Caine, for example, who seems to be John’s equal in terms of fighting prowess, is seemingly someone that Reeves’ character has dealt with in his past hitman career. Hiroyuki Sanada’s Shimazu seems like he could be one of Wick’s few allies in John Wick: Chapter 4, but Bills Skarsgård’s Marquis, on the other hand, is shaping up to be the most powerful figure in the franchise yet, serving as an influential member of the High Table.
With a fifth film in the franchise already planned, fans can rest assured that John Wick: Chapter 4 won’t see the death of Reeves’ main character. As has been shown in past installments, however, the franchise isn’t afraid to see John beaten to within an inch of his life, and it’s likely that this will continue in the upcoming movie. With a handful of formidable new villains in John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves’ hero seems to be facing his biggest threat yet, which hopefully translates to a movie that manages to top the previous three films.
