Star Wars fans couldn't contain their excitement about the news that the trilogy by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss is set in the Old Republic era. Naturally, the imagination of fans is running wild especially with the possibility of Darth Revan making his live-action debut. In fact, they believe Keanu Reeves is perfect for the job.
An artist by the name of Isatonic created an artwork that gives us an idea on what the legendary actor will look like as the fan-favorite Dark Lord of the Sith. Needless to say, it fueled excitement among users on Reddit, where the image was shared (you can check it out below).
They believe that Reeves is the perfect fit for Darth Revan. Granted, there is no exact depiction of the villain since he debuted in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, where players decide what the gender and the overall appearance of the character will be. Yet, seeing the actor in the Darth Revan getup instantly felt meant to be.
Apart from the look, he's also got the acting chops down, so he can totally channel the Sith Lord's menace and evil aura as well as the struggle from the pull of the light side. His work in a lot of his films especially John Wick proves that he can handle action, so he will likely crush it in lightsaber duels. Check out the artwork for yourself below.

With the overwhelming demand to bring Knights of the Old Republic back to canon and finally give Darth Revan the live-action treatment, fans believe that Disney can't go wrong with Reeves bringing the character to life in the Old Republic trilogy by the Game of Thrones duo.
Of course, this is no more than wishful thinking, at least for now. Reeves joining the Star Wars universe as Darth Revan, however, can actually be a big score for the franchise. Fans will just have to make enough noise to be heard.
For now, they can look forward to Star Wars: Episode IX, which hits the cinemas December 20.
