John Wick: Chapter 4 star Hiroyuki Sanada provides an intriguing clue about his new character in the upcoming film. The first John Wick became something of a surprise hit upon its release back in 2014, introducing audiences to Keanu Reeves’ slick and lethal assassin. The franchise has only grown since then, with both John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum expanding the world of the film and introducing a host of new characters, both friendly and otherwise.

John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to be the biggest entry in the franchise yet, with a recent trailer teasing some of what’s to come in the highly-anticipated action film. In addition to exotic locales and the franchise’s signature action, the trailer also provides a first look at many of the film’s new characters, including those played by Donnie Yen, Clancy Brown, and Sanada. Sanada’s character only features briefly in the trailer, but he hints that the High Table will never stop pursuing Wick. It’s currently unclear whether Sanada’s character will be an ally to Reeves’ assassin in John Wick: Chapter 4 or if he will end up being another one of Wick’s many enemies.

Now, in a new interview with Collider, Sanada provides a cryptic clue about the role his new character will play in the film. Sanada cites 2013’s 47 Ronin as a hint, saying that the chemistry between him and Reeves in that film ended up transferring to John Wick: Chapter 4 in some ways. With Reeves and Sanada’s characters being allies in 47 RoninSanada’s comment suggests that the two will be friendly once more in the upcoming John Wick sequel. Check out Sanada’s full comment below:

“Maybe the footage showed the relationship between Keanu and I. I worked with Keanu before, in 47 Ronin, and the relationship with knowing each other a long time, we could use that chemistry in the movie. So that’s a big hint, I think.”

One of the aspects that the John Wick franchise has increasingly explored with its more recent installments is that Reeves’ character doesn’t really have any friends or people he can depend on. Some of the characters he thought he could trust ended up betraying him, like Winston (Ian McShane), and others only used him for their own personal gain. With Sanada’s comment suggesting that his character could be an ally to Wick, it’s possible that John Wick: Chapter 4 will see Wick operating as less of a lone wolf this time around.

Of course, in the John Wick universe, nobody can really be trusted. While Sanada’s character may start off as an ally, it is entirely possible that he will betray Wick at some point down the line. It’s also unclear just how big Sanada’s role in the film will be overall and whether he will be returning in John Wick: Chapter 5. For now, however, Sanada’s comments hint that his new character will be an exciting addition to John Wick: Chapter 4.
