Critics and audiences were both impressed with John Wick and soon after began clamouring for a sequel. John Wick 2 (it’s uncertain if the film will actually be called this) was confirmed in May of this year. In a statement shortly after the sequel was announced, a representative for Lionsgate (the studio behind John Wick) said: “We knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell.”
