The 'John Wick' Series Is Actually An Adaptation Of Greek Mythology

Since the first John Wick film was released in 2014, the franchise has captured audiences' attention and revitalized the action movie genre. Perhaps most surprising of all - outside of the impressive action itself - is the thorough world-building of the first two films. A visual style reminiscent of graphic novels mixed with an interesting mythology helps the franchise stand out as something more impactful than another over-edited action fest.

The production team clearly paid extensive attention to the films' details, and this is evident when investigating many John Wick movie facts and theories. One potential - and surprisingly believable - theory claims the John Wick films are an adaptation of Greek mythology. The first film's elements reveal this connection, but those of the sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2, solidify it. Once the theory is laid out, few will deny John Wick is a Greek myth.
