In the least shocking news to come out of Hollywood all year (and possibly decades), Disney have announced development on a sequel to Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers.

As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
