John Wick 5's Keanu Reeves Return Could Destroy The Franchise

The fourth installment of the series was perhaps the best, but a prospective John Wick 5 starring Keanu Reeves is riskier than it might appear.

For four films, viewers saw John Wick (also known as The Baba Yaga) slaughter dozens of assassins,

but despite the growing body count, he didn't seem any closer to being free of his previous life.

Few people thought Wick would truly pass away because he consistently outlasted impossible odds.

However, John Wick's third film's director, Chad Stahelski, once admitted he attempted to kill the...

...character because he thought Wick would never be able to escape the mess he had made.

John Wick: The conclusion of Chapter 4 saw him going through hell to arrive at his scheduled fight with the Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgrd),

but even though he ultimately prevailed, Wick shortly passed away from his injuries.
