In a recent interview promoting Bill & Ted Face the Music, actor Keanu Reeves compared John Wick and NEO, two of his biggest characters.
During the interview, the host of the talk show Stephen Colbert he asked Keanu reeves who would win if John Wick and NEO, two leads from beloved action franchises, both played by the actor, had a fight.
Keanu Reeves has played tons of iconic roles over the years. Needless to say, fans, including Colbert, they wonder which of the two skilled fighters could beat the other. Unfortunately, however, Reeves' response may have been a bit disappointing. “Well number one,” said the actor, “they wouldn't fight.”
When Colbert heard this, he tried to get Keanu Reeves to give a more satisfying answer. “What if Neo accidentally killed John Wick's dog?” he asked, referring to the inciting incident from the first action movie in which the death of his dog sets the entire plan of revenge in motion. Reeves, however, was adamant in what he said earlier.
“Maybe John Wick would help Thomas Anderson (Neo's real name) in the real world, against machines.” So actor Keanu Reeves did not want to give a forceful answer and preferred to let the fans speculate on these issues themselves.
The two characters will return to the movies very soon.
Keanu Reeves will return to play John Wick and NEO, as he will premiere the fourth installment of both sagas. Fans are looking forward to hearing what he will offer Matrix 4, because the previous trilogy had a pretty close ending, so something new will have to be invented. Quite the opposite of John Wick where the path of the protagonist is already set and he simply must annihilate all the enemies he has made in the three previous installments.
