John Wick is going to war. If you saw how John Wick: Chapter 2 ended, you probably already knew that, but the official title for John Wick 3 wants you to know for sure. Speaking with the folks at ComingSoon, Keanu Reeves confirmed that the upcoming sequel is called John Wick 3: Parabellum
So what does Parabellum refer to? Reeves told the outlet that the subtitle means “Prepare for war.” He explained, ” It’s part of that famous sentence, ‘Si vis pacem, para bellum,’ which translates as, ‘If you want peace, prepare for war.'” That sounds about right for a character like Wick, who just wanted to live the quiet life until some mobster punks stole his car and killed his dog, reawakening the Baba yaga and sending the legendary assassin on a quest for vengeance that got him tangled up in the criminal underworld all over again.
