This week saw the release of a new series of character posters for the action sequel. John Wick 3 in which, among others, the legends Laurence Fishburne and Anjelica Huston are shown.
The lush visuals feature characters from the franchised codenamed "The Elder," "The Bowery King," and "The Adjudicator," who all play a fitting role in the criminal underworld in which the films play.  But it was the poster for the assassin named Tick Tock Man, played by Jason Mantzoukas, who caused the most violent reaction, with fans pointing repeatedly to the actor's comedy credits, including wild-card policeman Adrian Pimento of Brooklyn Nine Nine and the Barely Strange Robo Clone Derek from The Good Place.
Adrian Pimento, hilariously taken out of control, would not be out of place on bony, bloodshed John Wick series. Maybe "Tick Tock Man" is just one of his pseudonyms, and this movie plays in a huge, common sitcom universe?
John Wick 3, or, to give him his full title, ] John Wick: Chapter 3 ̵
The first John Wick film was released in 2014, telling the simple, understandable story of a retired hangman who once again takes his arms to avenge his puppy. It was a surprise hit that has more than quadrupled its production budget worldwide. Chapter 2 followed in 2017 and expanded the world of the Continental Hotel and its rogue gallery. It is unclear whether this third film is the last episode of a trilogy or whether there is more scope for John Wick .
