A new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster arrives revealing a closer look at the highly anticipated action sequel and hyping Keanu Reeves' return.

Keanu Reeves is back in action in the latest John Wick: Chapter 4 poster. Reeves is once again leading the star-studded cast for the highly anticipated action film alongside franchise vets Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick and newcomers Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, Clancy Brown and Shamier Anderson. Chad Stahelski is also back at the helm for John Wick: Chapter 4, though now on a script solely from Shay Hatten and Michael Finch, marking the first entry in the franchise not penned by creator Derek Kolstad.

As part of the film's Brazil Comic-Con experience, CCXP, Lionsgate unveiled a new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster. The key art for the action sequel teases Reeves' return as the titular assassin as he embarks on his most difficult journey yet in the hopes of finally getting out from under the thumb of the High Table. Check out the poster below:

The new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster continues the film's marketing trend of hinting that the action sequel could be the end of the road for Reeves' titular assassin. The story's indication that John facing off against Skarsgård's Marquis de Gramont is his last avenue to stop the High Table's pursuit of retribution for his killing of Santino on Continental grounds in John Wick: Chapter 2. Considering how stacked the odds have been against Wick through the previous three John Wick movies, his ongoing survival could easily see him come out John Wick: Chapter 4 ready for whatever the future holds for him.

Despite both the new John Wick: Chapter 4 poster and recent trailer hinting that the film could be the end for Reeves' protagonist, both the actor himself and Lionsgate seem far from ready to retire him.

 The pandemic saw the studio both confirm that a John Wick 5 was in the works and would film back-to-back with its predecessor, as well as elect to postpone this plan while moving away with the fourth film first following production delays due to Reeves' commitment to The Matrix Resurrections. Reeves himself has frequently expressed an interest in continuing to play the character indefinitely, as long as the John Wick movies continue to be successful.
