Keanu Reeves Reveals the Touching Reason He Keeps Returning to “John Wick” 10 Years On

Keanu Reeves has had a long and illustrious career in Hollywood, with a string of memorable roles that have won him critical acclaim and legions of fans. But perhaps none of his roles have been as beloved as that of John Wick, the lethal hitman with a heart of gold who Reeves has played in three films and counting.

Now, in a recent interview with Variety, Reeves has opened up about the touching reason he keeps returning to the role of John Wick, even a decade after the character was first introduced to audiences.

According to Reeves, the reason he loves playing John Wick is because of the character’s intense dedication to his loved ones. “For me, one of the aspects of the character that I love is his love for his wife,” Reeves said. “That deep, passionate love for her, and the sadness of her death, fuel him.”

Indeed, the character of John Wick was originally motivated to come out of retirement and wreak havoc on the criminal underworld after his wife was killed, leaving him with nothing to live for but revenge. But as the series has gone on, John Wick has also formed new bonds with other characters, including his beloved dog and a group of fellow assassins who have become his makeshift family.

Reeves says that this sense of familial connection is what keeps drawing him back to the role, even as the films become increasingly action-packed and over-the-top. “I think John Wick has found himself again, and when we meet him again in John Wick 4, I think he might have some new friends,” Reeves teased.

Fans of the John Wick franchise will undoubtedly be thrilled to hear that Reeves is just as passionate about the character as they are. And with a fourth film in the works, it seems like there’s no end in sight for the beloved hitman and his adventures in the criminal underworld.

Of course, as with any action film franchise, there is always the risk of things becoming stale or repetitive over time. But with Reeves’ dedication to the character and the series, it’s safe to say that John Wick will continue to thrill audiences for years to come.
