Director Chad Stahelski said  'John may survive all this s**t, but at the end of it, there’s no happy ending. He’s got nowhere to go,' the director said in another interview with IndieWire.

'How do you f***ing want me to end it? Do you think he’s going to ride off into the f***ing sunset? He’s killed 300 fucking people and he’s just going to [walk away], everything’s okay?' the director added.

'He’s f***ed for the rest of his life. It’s just a matter of time,' Stahelski added.
