Everybody Wants To Kill John WickIf the first three movies have established anything, it's that everyone wants to kill John Wick. But why? As you might remember, John killed Santino D'Antonio in the 2017 sequel on the premises of Continental Hotel. As a result, Wick is now excommunicado with a bounty of $14 million on his head.

What Is The Continental & Who Is Winston?Winston serves as the proprietor of The Continental, a haven for assassins. In Chapter 3, the Adjudicator takes strips Winston of his ranks for letting John escape after the events of the second movie. However, Winston seems to be in the good books again, after shooting John (non-fatally) at the end of the fourth movie.

The High TableBut who makes these rules? Established lore in the third movie suggests that the High Table functions as a governing body of the assassin syndicate. While the members of the High Table remain hidden, in John Wick Chapter 3, Keanu meets The Elder, the only individual who doesn’t answer to anyone.

The Team-upThe end of the last movie sees John being pushed into a shopping cart and taken to the Bowery King, who has a score to settle with the Adjudicator and the High Table. The upcoming movie might see Wick and Bowery King teaming up to bring down the High Table once and for all.

Upcoming John Wick SpinoffsWhile Chapter 4 might be the final movie in the series, the franchise will continue with two planned spin-offs - The Continental, a 70s-era show based on the younger version of Winston. And a second spin-off show led by Ana de Arma as Ballerina, a deadly assassin based in the same world.
