John Wick is a fictional character and the protagonist of the action thriller film franchise of the same name. The first movie in the series, titled “John Wick,” was released in 2014 and directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. The film stars Keanu Reeves as John Wick, a retired hitman who seeks vengeance for the killing of his beloved dog, a final gift from his deceased wife.
The John Wick character is known for his exceptional combat skills, especially in close quarters and hand-to-hand combat, as well as his proficiency with firearms. His fighting style is a blend of various martial arts, including judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and various forms of shooting techniques.
The film franchise has become popular for its stylized action sequences, intricate world-building, and the portrayal of a shadowy underworld of assassins and criminals. The success of the first film has spawned several sequels, including “John Wick: Chapter 2” (2017), “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” (2019), and the upcoming “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which is set to be released in 2023.
John Wick: Chapter 4 director Chad Stahelski has left the door open for another entry in the franchise to come, noting that he and star Keanu Reeves are open to the idea of it.
Speaking during a recent appearance on The Hollywood Reporter’s Behind the Screen podcast series, Stahelski said that it’s “flattering” that both the studio and audiences want more entries in the film. While he needs time to digest things, he did tease that he and Keanu could always end up getting the itch to do another film.
“It’s very flattering for them to come back and say, ‘We want more,’ and it’s not just a cash grab. It’s legitimately the audience wants more,” said Stahelski. “I think we all need that little bit of time to go, ‘Whew. Let’s see what’s next.’ … If Keanu and I, a few months from now sit down at a whiskey bar in Japan again and go, ‘Yep, we’ll never do another one of those,’ and then all of a sudden go, ‘Yeah, but I got an idea.’ We’re open to it.”
Stahelski’s are a bit more positive than the ones he made about a month ago, teasing that they were giving the franchise a rest for now. They also sound similar to comments made by Reeves himself, as the star recently said that he “never say never” about returning for a fifth film.
The Continental of New York is located at Manover St. Block 23 207 7, Special District: Lower Manhattan of New York City. The Continental of New York was incorporated and opened on April 4, 1904, and was registered on the same date. The date and pic of opening clearly shows in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

Eventually, the Continental spread around the world with their own chains runs by other members internationally.

When Winston and John both refused to kill each other, where the Adjudicator talks to the Administrator while giving the order of Deconsecrated, allowing “business” to be legal on its grounds. After the normal guests of the hotel are evacuated, Winston regranted John his privileges before he and Charon go to the armory to protect themselves from the High Table. Soon, a team of High Table enforcers in advanced bulletproof armor arrive and attack the hotel, killing most of the New York Continental’s armed staff, except for Charon. After a tough gunfight, the defenders kill the rest of the enforcers before John confronts Zero and his assassins, killing Zero and the rest of his assassins, save for two of them who he spared honorably.

John Wick: Chapter 4
Sometime after John Wick traveled to Morocco to successfully assassinate The Elder, the leader of the High Table, Winston and Charon were summoned by Marquis Vincent de Gramont in Paris. There, the Marquis de Gramont chastised Winston for failing to kill John. As punishment, he stripped Winston of his position and destroyed the New York Continental. Additionally, he ordered Charon to be executed. With John taking refuge at the Osaka Continental, Vincent ordered an attack on it that failed to kill him.
Later, one of Winston’s demands for John’s duel was that the hotel be rebuilt and reconsecrated at the High Table’s expense along with the restoration of his titles. After John won, The Harbinger promised that the hotel would be rebuilt with Winston as the manager once more.
