For a good while in the 2000s, Keanu Reeves wasn’t exactly the Golden Boy of Hollywood. Sure, plenty of people liked it, but apart from the Matrix movies, he wasn’t really a big fan favorite (and the quality of those last two Matrix movies certainly didn’t help). When John Wick came out a few years ago, the tide of his career seemed to return once again in his favor, and then his appearance on stage at E3 for Cyberpunk 2077 seemed to solidify fandom’s pure love of the dude.
With that in mind, there’s a lot of discussion surrounding putting Keanu Reeves in everything, making him Person of the Year, and of course, putting him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, he is one of three actors in all of Hollywood currently NOT in these movies. But it sounds like that could be rectified eventually.
“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about. I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.”
If you’re still hankering to get your Keanu Reeves fix, the man will be voicing Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4 this coming weekend, but a lot of people are really pushing for him to play Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and I’ve even heard some fans really wanting him to play Silver Surfer, which I wouldn’t hate.
Who do you want Keanu Reeves to play in the MCU? Do you see him taking on a character without being distractingly Keanu? Let us know your thoughts down below!
