Also, he wanted to see how real audiences reacted to the film. Reeves recalled of his experience,
“I didn’t know if I was going to get the chance to do another one, and I just wanted to see if people liked it,” he continues saying “It was cool when people started laughing during the knife fight in the opening.” he also mentioned, “I went with a friend. I was like, ‘Let’s go see John Wick 3 before it goes.’ I love John Wick movies! They’re fun!”
Could Keanu Find Himself In The Marvel Universe Soon

“It would be an honor. Some really amazing directors and visionaries. They’re doing something no one’s ever really done. It’s special in that sense, in terms of the scale, the ambition, the production. So it’d be cool to be a part of that,”
From watching 3 movies at the movies in a day to going to random theaters to see his own work, it’s clear that Keanu Reeves is a true movie geek in a good way.
