It might be due to the John Wick films, Cyberpunk 2077, or him just being the nicest person ever, it seems like no celebrity is bigger than Keanu Reeves right now. It’s an interesting thing to point out since Reeves star seemed to fade after The Matrix but he has rebounded big time ever since John Wick came out. Well, rumor has it that Keanu Reeves has been in talks with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige has confirmed that to be true.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Feige was asked about approaching actors for the MCU, including Reeves. Feige confirmed that he has been recruiting Reeves to be in the MCU for years now, which is fairly surprising to hear. Still, it would be awesome seeing the beloved actor in some sort of MCU role and we can only hope that it’s a major one.
“We talk to him for almost every film we make. 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.”
Rumors and reports have claimed that Reeves is being courted to play Adam Warlock for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which would be amazing. It would be fun to see him portray someone who is incredibly powerful, especially since he already kicks all the butt as John Wick.
We’ll hear more about Reeves’ MCU future soon. Hopefully.
