John Wick: Chapter 4 Adds Thor Ragnarok's Clancy Brown To Cast

Brown joins Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, and Ian McShane in the next John Wick movie.


Clancy Brown has joined the cast of John Wick: Chapter 4. As reported by Deadline, the Thor: Ragnarok and Mandalorian actor will join the cast of the Keanu Reeves-starring action sequel, which releases in May 2022.

Details of the character that Brown will play haven't been revealed yet. However, director Chad Stahelski released a statement, which reads, "I have been a fan of Clancy Brown's since I can remember. To have him be a part of this project is an honor. He will make a perfect addition to the World of John Wick!"

Brown himself later confirmed the news, with a tweet from the movie's set:

Brown performed the voice of the fire giant Surtur in Thor Ragnarok, a role he's set to reprise in the upcoming animated Marvel show What If, and the alien Burg in Season 1 of The Mandalorian. He recently appeared in the Oscar-winning Promising Young Woman and will play the main villain in the upcoming Dexter revival show, while his long filmography also includes The Shawshank Redemption, Highlander, Warcraft, Cowboys & Aliens, and Starship Troopers.

John Wick: Chapter 4 also stars Ian McShane, Donnie Yen, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, and Marko Zaror. It hits theaters on May 27, 2022.

There's also a John Wick spin-off titled The Continental on the way. While it was originally announced as a regular Starz TV series, last month it was reported that it will be a three-episode "event" series. Each installment will be about 90 minutes in length and carry a budget of $20 million or more. The Continental will be a '70s-set prequel focusing on the younger Winston, the enigmatic character played by Ian McShane in the movies.
