'John Wick 2' Update: Expect the unexpected as plot theories and details abound
Keanu Reeves will be back as the legendary assassin in 'John Wick 2'. Playing the titular character, many fans expect the second installment of the film to live up to the critical and audience acclaim of the movie.
According to Cross Map, the rich history in the story serves as a very promising treasure trove of ideas for 'John Wick 2'. One of the things that fans can expect is John Wick's past as Viggo Tarasov's best assassin. Whether 'John Wick 2' ends up a sequel or a prequel, fans would like to glimpse at Wick's days as the best hit man, one who killed 3 men with a pencil and who was largely responsible for the criminal empire that exists under Viggo.
The Continental is also expected to return. The hotel is not simply a setting but the exclusive hub of assassins, and where even these killers follow its rules. Remaining unexplored, The Continental's history and further details can have a more complicated story of its own in 'John Wick 2'
According to Day Herald, President of Lionsgate Jason Constantine says there is more to tell about John Wick's story. Marcus was John Wick's mentor and friend but has been hinted at that it wasn't always that way. How that friendship came about or how that friendship will turn out could be explored in 'John Wick 2'.
In an article by Movie News Guide, being one of "the best thrillers of 2014", John Wick's sequel should feature the insane action. What made the movie so thrilling is also one of the things it's famous for: John Wick's "ridiculously high number of on screen kills" and how they largely "inventive ways". 'John Wick 2' is expected to bring back or even surpass that character driven thrill ride, and no pointless action.
Last but not the least, fans are also curious on why or how John Wick turned away from his assassin life. It was hinted that he was given an "impossible task" before he can walk away from the mob life. Fans would definitely love to see what that "impossible task" and how things ended up the way they did. That event could even have repercussions only seen or known in 'John Wick 2'.
Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are back to direct and they tease the fans to expect the unexpected. The directors are emphasizing that the action will be there, but they are also working very hard on character and plot, which are central to the action.
Keanu Reeves' 'John Wick 2' is still working on the script and will be in cinemas 2017.
