Ever since John Wick 3: Parabellum premiered back in 2019, fans have been waiting for the fourth John Wick film to arrive.
Parabellum ended with a cliffhanger showing Keanu Reeves' titular character all banged up with Laurence Fishburne's Bowery King, after being seemingly "killed" by Winston. However, while Wick had seen better days at the end of Parabellum, he was still strong enough to talk. When asked by the Bowery King if he was angry at the High Table, John replied with a simple but resounding "Yeah".
With the fourth film set to feature a team-up between the Bowery King and John Wick in a war against the High Table, fans are curious to find out more details about John Wick 4. Now, it appears that the subtitle for the upcoming action-thriller film has leaked.
What is the official title for John Wick 4?
It was only a matter of time before more information about John Wick 4 started popping up online. After principal photography started last May and ended this November, fans have been on the lookout for leaked intel about John Wick 4. Although very few images and footage about John Wick 4 has appeared online, the gifts given away to the crew might have "accidentally" revealed the subtitle for the film.

The subject of the photo is the gift bags that were given away to the crew members behind John Wick 4. It's not unusual for production sets to give away similar memorabilia to the crew as a token of appreciation. What is interesting here is that the gift bags have a name printed outside - "Hagakure" - which many believe is the official subtitle of John Wick 4. If this is true, then it does make sense. Japan was one of the filming locations of the fourth John Wick film along with New York, Berlin, and Paris.
With John Wick: Chapter 4 scheduled to premiere on May 27, 2022, we should hear more about the film in the coming weeks, especially after the holidays.
At the moment, there's very little available information about John Wick 4 outside of the main cast. As we've already mentioned, Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne will both reprise their respective roles. The same goes for Ian McShane and Lance Reddick, who plays Winston and Charon, respectively. Meanwhile, John Wick 4 will welcome a fresh set of faces in Rina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, and Clancy Brown.
Chad Stahelski is also back on the director's chair for the fourth film in a row. It's believed that Stahelski will work on the live-action adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima next after John Wick 4.
In the meantime, Keanu's fans can look forward to watching the Canadian actor reprise his iconic role as Neo in the upcoming Matrix installment, The Matrix Resurrections on December 18, 2021.
