Hollywood, CA – Antoine Fuqua, the acclaimed director behind the successful Equalizer film franchise, has made it abundantly clear that there will be no The Equalizer 4 without the iconic Denzel Washington reprising his role as Robert McCall.
The revelation came during a recent press conference where Fuqua addressed eager fans and the media, shedding light on the future of the action-packed vigilante series that has captivated audiences worldwide.
In a statement that sent ripples of excitement through the crowd, Fuqua stated, “Denzel Washington is the heart and soul of The Equalizer series. His portrayal of Robert McCall is nothing short of extraordinary, and I can’t envision anyone else in that role. For The Equalizer 4 to happen, it must include Denzel.”
The Equalizer franchise has been a runaway success since its inception, with Washington’s McCall at the center of each film’s intense action and gripping narratives.

The actor, known for his selective choice of roles and commitment to delivering compelling performances, has yet to comment on the matter. However, the prospect of his return to the beloved character is undeniably enticing.
Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington have a long-standing collaborative relationship, with their successful partnership extending beyond The Equalizer franchise. The duo has worked together on several projects, including the critically acclaimed Training Day (2001), which earned Washington an Academy Award for Best Actor.
As anticipation builds for The Equalizer 4, fans of the series can rest assured that Antoine Fuqua’s unwavering commitment to having Denzel Washington return as Robert McCall promises to deliver another exhilarating chapter in the vigilante’s thrilling saga. The question now remains: will Denzel Washington heed the call and once again don the mantle of The Equalizer?
