Keanu Reeves would love to be part of the MCU
Matrix Resurrections star Keanu Reeves has expressed his dedication to the MCU and thinks it would be fun to join Spider-Man.
Keanu Reeves has once again reiterated his excitement about one day joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe … although he’s not sure exactly where or how he would fit in. AND online, the beloved star of iconic franchises such as The matrix and John wick has expressed his dedication to the ongoing Marvel franchise, and while he has no idea who he would play if he got into the fray, he knows the experience would be most enjoyable.
“Oh my God, I don’t know! I actually don’t have an answer. There are so many wonderful films and filmmakers and artists involved in these films. It would be fun to be a part of them. ”
Both Keanu Reeves and Marvel fans have wanted the two to reunite for some time. The actor, who will soon reprise one of his most famous roles in Matrix resurrections, has been topping fan wishlists for Marvel roles such as Ghost Rider, the Silver Surfer, and even Wolverine. While none of these have happened yet, the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows no signs of slowing down, allowing Reeves to add plenty of future opportunities to the roster.
This isn’t the first time Keanu Reeves has shared his feelings about the MCU and his eagerness to join figures like Spider Man and Doctor strange in the constantly expanding series. “Isn’t that bigger than a universe? It’s almost like a multiverse. It’s a Marvel verse,” the actor said in November. “It would be an honor. There are some really amazing directors and visionaries, and they’re doing something that no one really has ever done. It’s special in that sense, in terms of scale, ambition, production. So that would be cool to be a part of it. ”
Reeves is of course no stranger to the comic book film genre, having starred in films like DC. Constantine as a titular supernatural investigator. While Reeves may never switch to the Marvel side of things, he is hoping to bring the DC hero back to screens, recently revealing that he’s been trying to get an informed sequel. “I would love to replay John Constantine from Constantine… I tried. I tried, Stephen… Yes, I would love to,” he said.
Until the fateful day that Keanu Reeves is announced as Ghost Rider or some other Marvel hero, the actor will next be seen returning to the world of The Matrix in the fourth film of the franchise, Matrix resurrections. Set twenty years after the events of The Matrix Revolutions, the story finds Neo living a seemingly ordinary life under his original identity as Thomas A. Anderson. Haunted by dreams from his past, he took mysterious blue pills to dampen his powers. When a new version of Morpheus offers him the Red Pill again, Neo’s mind reopens to the world of The Matrix, with The One joining a group of rebels to fight a new foe.
Matrix resurrections is slated to hit theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures on December 22, 2021 and will also premiere digitally on HBO Max in the United States for one month from the same date.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is still a long way off, but new reports suggest one of the DCEU’s biggest stars will join Shazam and Co.
