John Wick: Chapter 4 serves SHOCKING ending: Spoiler alert

The  ending of John Wick 4 left viewers in awe as the movie ended with the supposed death of Wick. 

When asked about why the ending went in such a direction Keanu Reeves spoke over Chapter 4's existence and said: "We had the opportunity [to do another film] because the audience [response to] Chapter Three, and we were like, 'What was the Why?'" 

"And when Chad and I was talking, the Why? was death – and it was John Wick’s death. For him to get his peace, or freedom, in a way … that was the reason to make the movie. It can’t just be, 'Let’s do another one.' It was really about death, or a way of dying. We were really inspired by the Hagakure…"

According to John Wick director Chad Stahelski, The Hagakure is a Japanese code of ethics. 

A book titled Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai explains its teachings as "a practical and spiritual guide for a warrior."
