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.
