What ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ end-credits scene means for a could-be sequel
As the credits moved on the amazing John Wick: Section 4, an implicit inquiry lingered palpably of my theater: “Did they simply kill John Wick?”
We’d recently watched the unprecedented professional killer (played by Keanu Reeves) win his independence from the High Table by killing the Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård) in a duel. Be that as it may, it’s not well before he implodes, dying, on the means of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris. From that point, the film slices to a picture of his headstone. The Bowery Lord (Laurence Fishburne) and Winston (Ian McShane) grieve him. They even have John’s pitbull with them, so it seems as though he’s long gone. In any case, in this period of game-evolving post-credits successions, there’s generally trust that a cherished person will return after the film closes — yet that isn’t true for John Wick: Section 4. Rather than prodding that John will return in John Wick: Section 5, the post-credits scene indicates something different: another competition.
‘John Wick: Section 4’ survey: Infuse this film into my veins
We see John’s close buddy and enemy Caine (Donnie Yen) show up at a jam-packed Sacré-Coeur with a bundle of roses. He’s there to see his violin player girl, whom the High Table took steps to kill should Caine neglect to do their offering. Like John, Caine is additionally liberated from the High Table after the duel, so he is at last ready to move toward his girl unafraid. In any case, there’s one last detail he didn’t represent.
During his chase after John, Caine killed Shimazu (Hiroyuki Sanada), the supervisor of the Osaka Mainland. Be that as it may, he left Shimazu’s little girl Akira (Rina Sawayama) alive. Before she headed out in different directions from John, she made obviously it is possible that he would kill Caine or she would.
The post-credits scene shows Akira getting ready to follow through with that commitment as she clears her path through the crowds at Sacré-Coeur towards Caine, enclose shaper hand. We slice to dark soon after Akira hauls the cutting edge out, yet the significance is clear: Very much like John Wick in his most memorable film, she is currently on a mission for vengeance.
All in all, what occurs straightaway? Is Akira ready to shock Caine in the group? Will this produce a John Wick side project zeroed in on Caine and Akira, related or like the forthcoming film Ballet performer and television series The Mainland?
Regardless of whether it have monstrous establishment wide implications, this post-credits scene builds up one of the critical topics of John Wick: Part 4: The individuals who carry on with the existence of a professional killer can never really be free. Both John and Caine get pulled out of assumed retirement and constrained into a ridiculous pattern of retribution. Caine alludes to both of them as “condemned,” while John is over and over told that the main finish to his way — and the main way for him to track down opportunity — is passing.
Without a doubt, this end-credits scene could be setting up a continuation (I wouldn’t agree no to more Yen and Sawayama), yet it is likewise a powerful sign of the ruthlessness of life in John Wick’s reality. Like Caine, you might believe you’re free as a bird — however that is never the situation.
