John Wick 4's Incredible Villain Roster Hurts John Wick 5.

After John Wick: Chapter 4, the franchise should take a breather due to its amazing villains.

After John Wick: Chapter 4, the franchise will take a break, but its incredible villains and surprising ending will challenge John Wick 5. Since 2014, Keanu Reeves' John Wick has gone from avenging his dog to fleeing mercenaries. 

John Wick: Chapter 4 has Laurence Fishburne as the Bowery King helping John escape the High Table for good.

Reeves and Stahelski announced the franchise's hiatus before John Wick: Chapter 4. After his High Table combat with Donnie Yen's Caine in John Wick: Chapter 4, John dies, necessitating that. 

The movie offshoot Ballerina will feature John Wick, and the TV show The Continental will expand the John Wick universe, but another main series installment appears unlikely. 

However, John Wick: Chapter 4's many enemies show how hard it would be to follow and why a pause in the main series is smart.

John's largest enemy is the High Table, but Bill Skarsgård's Marquis de Gramont, one of its most powerful representatives, stands in his way of independence.

Marko Zaror plays John's enemy Chidi, while Scott Adkins plays Killa Harkan. In John Wick: Chapter 4, Donnie Yen plays John's longtime friend and involuntary antagonist Caine. 

John Wick: Chapter 4's larger-than-life adversaries, led by Shamier Anderson's Mr. Nobody, raise the bar for future films.
