Yes, Keanu Reeves Is Interested in Being Part of the MCU!

With many star-studded names recently added to the MCU, it was only time before fans turned to Keanu Reeves about his own involvement. Reeves responds he’d be honored to be a part of this universe.

When it comes to Reeves, fans had formerly suspected that he would take on the mantle of Moon Knight. This character is now being helmed by Oscar Isaac and is scheduled to see the light of day in 2022. Another role fans would like to see him in is that of Mister Sinister.

The rumors really hit home when Marvel’s Twitter account wished Reeves a happy birthday, but immediately deleted the post.

(My honest guess would be a Marvel social media handler who accidentally wished their favorite actor without anticipating the sea of repercussions.)

In any case, Reeves clears out these rumors in an Esquire interview, where he answers some of the internet’s most burning questions.

He jokes about how the MCU is bigger than just one universe, and goes on to say:

It would be an honor. There’s some really amazing directors and visionaries, and they’re doing something no one’s really ever done. It’s special in that sense, in terms of the scale, the ambition, the production. So, it would be cool to be a part of that.

In fact, in 2019, Kevin Feige disclosed to ComicBook that Marvel has approached Reeves for almost every movie. It’s just about getting him the right role.

Marvel’s Phase 3 and 4 have introduced many comic book characters that have never been on screen before. So even though Reeves isn’t in any of the upcoming titles, there sure is room for him to take on roles in the future.

What is immensely helpful is that both Marvel and Reeves have expressed a positive inclination to doing so.

Reeves dabbled a tiny bit in the superhero realm when he took on the lead role in 2005’s Constantine. Coming soon, he will also be voicing an undisclosed role in DC’s League of Superpets.

Reeves is known to be a “super” hero in his own rights, most popularly in the universe of John Wick and The Matrix. Adding another universe to that bill would certainly be marvelous!
