2017 is going to be a hell of a year for dog death revenge classics. Not only are we getting John Wick: Chapter Two in February, but the good peeps over at Dynamite Entertainment are launching a John Wick comic in partnership with Lionsgate.
"John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing," Dynamite CEO Nick Barrucci told Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday. "As the credits rolled, you were left wanting more, and it was obvious they had the makings of a franchise. We were quick to pursue the opportunity to develop a comic book series, and are thrilled to have been granted the rights to tell all-new stories with the character!"
Instead of rocking the strict adaptation format, Dynamite Entertainment's John Wick series will be an "expansion" of the universe. Though Dynamite is already (thankfully) teasing artist Giovanni Valletta’s concept art, additional details on the series have not been released. The comics are expected to debut next spring.
With John Wick: Chapter Two set to make the burgeoning franchise millions of dollars in February, the future of #KeanuSeason is looking hella great. Understandably, director Chad Stahelski is already out here talking about unleashing even more sequels in the years ahead. "The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something," he told Collider in October.
