It is no longer news anymore that the John Wick franchise has been given yet another comeback at the cinemas with the announcement of the fourth installment in the movie franchise. The ending of the previous movie left fans happy with a smile, thus yearning for more of John Wick, which led to the decision of the fourth movie, which is now delayed a couple more years into the future.

Why the movie was delayed in the first place

The film was originally supposed to be released on May 21, 2021, but was withheld because of the COVID-19 pandemic and Keanu Reeves' partial commitment concerning "The Matrix Resurrection."

Later on, it was rescheduled to May 27, 2022, until the sudden change in mind by the studio.

"John Wick: Chapter 4" was pushed forward and rescheduled in theaters on March 24, 2023.

Lionsgate has withheld any comments as to the reason for the delay in the movie release. "John Wick 4" isn't the end of the franchise." Reeves previously mentioned that he plans to keep staring at the franchise until people aren't interested in it anymore. However, that won't be for quite some time. "John Wick 5" already has the green light, but there are even fewer details on the next sequel.

Alongside the fourth installment of the movie, a few other well-known releases will be up for a competition that same month, which is the follow-up. "A Quiet Place 2" will be released in theaters on March 31 alongside "Wonka."
