Halle Berry makes a striking entrance with a first look of her new character in John Wick: Chapter 3.

In a still released by the official John Wick Twitter account, Berry appears as Sofia walking through what we can assume to be The Continental, the New York City hotel that serves as neutral territory for assassins. Dressed stylishly in all black and two German shepherds in tow, the Academy Award winner looks ready for action as she joins the cast of the upcoming third film in the franchise.

Berry was cast last month as Sofia, leading a wave of new characters that includes Anjelica Huston as The Director of the secret cabal of assassins hunting Keanu Reeves' John Wick. Details about Berry's character are being kept under wraps, but she's not expected to be an antagonist to Reeves' contract killer.
