Everyone in Hollywood is in love with Keanu Reeves, including the Marvel Studios. The actor has been making the headlines for his upcoming projects. The 54-year-old actor has been a part of the John Wick franchise since it began. He has recently joined the Toy Story franchise by voicing over for Duke Kaboom in Toy Story 4 which releases this weekend. Now, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirms that The Matrix star is in the talks to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yes, the real-life hero could be a superhero in the future.
The confirmation comes after a series of reports hinted that Keanu is in the talks with the superheroes movie franchise. Kevin sealed the deal with the statement confirming that Marvel Studios has been in touch with Keanu for a long time now. The producer, speaking with Comicbook.com, revealed that Keanu was in consideration for almost all MCU movies made till date. Yes, the actor could have made an MCU debut in one of the 22 movies released over the past decade.
“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige confirmed. So why didn’t he make a debut yet? Turns out, Marvel Studios is still searching for the perfect role for Keanu. “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,” the producer added. It makes sense. Instead of introducing the actor for the sake of it, launching him into the MCU as a character he was meant to play would be such a huge difference.
For the unversed, Keanu was in talks with the studio for Captain Marvel. The actor was approached to play the role of Yon‑Rogg, which eventually landed in Jude Law’s kitty. If Marvel Studios is looking for some ideas, may we suggest Wolverine? The actor recently confessed he would love to play the X-Men character. “I don’t know, when I was a kid, I always wanted to play Wolverine, so, Wolverine,” the actor said in a recent interview. With the franchise now under the Marvel Studios banner, it could happen.
