Are the 'John Wick' Movies Deeper Than They Appear?

Plus: What's the matter with Marvel?

Hey, thanks for listening. If you enjoy the show—and who doesn’t, it’s a great show—and would like to get more episodes of this (great) show but haven’t been sure about signing up for a full Bulwark+ membership, good news: you can get a month free for a couple more days. Last week’s tribute to Lance Reddick was pretty good, if a bit sad, and Alyssa’s analysis of the Oscars fashion was wonderfully fun.

On this week’s episode, Sonny Bunch (The Bulwark) and Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post) ask if the well-oiled machine that is Marvel studios is about to see the wheels come flying off. (Peter is out this week, but have no fear: He should be back next week.) And then they discuss John Wick: Chapter 4, a movie that is not only immensely fun to watch but also, possibly, sneaky-deep? Make sure to swing by Bulwark+ for our bonus episode this week on the great action franchises of the last 40 years or so. And if you enjoyed this episode, please share it with a friend!
