John Wick fans could certainly use some good news! John Wick: Chapter 4 was delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The film will now come out a year later than its original release date, releasing in May 2022. But if things go smoothly, fans will undoubtedly get to see more of Wick’s world soon. The John Wick spinoff show, “The Continental” which is set to debut on Starz has received some new updates. Chad Stahelski, who directed all the John Wick films, revealed some interesting further details about the spinoff show.
In an interview with Fandom, the director talked about how the show differs from the film. The show will be set in the same world as the films. But Stahelski hinted that the movie will cover a longer timeline than the movies. The entirety of the John Wick saga has taken place over three weeks. And boy, have those three weeks been eventful as hell.
John Wick: Maybe A Charon Spinoff?
Stahelski also said that the show will have a very different perspective of characters. “The show is about how deep the world is, and not just about assassins but even beyond than that. You get to see a lot of the origin stories are some of the characters that you see in John Wick.”
Worldbuilding has been consistently one of the strongest things about the John Wick films. The mystery about how the assassination world works, what with their own currency and established history. It’s certainly interesting that the show will be fleshing the origins of the characters in the Wick films.
I don’t know about you but I’d love to see more about what task was John ordered to finish for his relief from the world of assassinations. Oh, and even a story focused on Lance Reddick’s Charon the Concierge would be cool as all hell.
