Henry Cavill likely to star.

I hope it will be a relatively fresh new story and not a remake.

1 - fantastic
2 - disregarding continuity changes/retcons its fun
3 - Damn good and fun
Endgame - good
The search for vengeance (madhouse anime) - freaking awesome


Revising this a bit...
1 = Very Good
2 (cut with aliens) = Poor
2 (cut without aliens) = Good
3 = Good
4 = Decent to Good
Anime = Very Good to Great

I love the john wicks films they are fantastic my only concern is is how will this director going make the whole issue of walking around with swords okay, the 80's film got away with this as it was the 80's and people were trying new things, but characters walking around with swords who are not superheroes can be really jarring as in the real world you get arrested for walking around with deadly weapons.

This is why, and I know it sounds nuts I want them to go with the alien angle but say its more aliens created the immortals and there not aliens themselves like test run for the human race which they didn't like and made humans afterwards. This way all the immortal weapons could be alien so the can pull out something that looks like a lighter or cane, and it turns in to a full on sword and if they die it destroys itself or becomes part of the final man or woman's sword enhancing it.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

I dunno about remaking this one....I adore the original and I'm not sure it can be recaptured.......unfortunately after the first movie I thought things hit
the skids pretty quickly. The TV show was ok but I prefer to think of it as another timeline. It made very messy inconsistent narrative.
who doesn't want to kick back with Misato and have a few beers?
