The first half of 2019 has seen Keanu Reeves very busy.
In March, there was a first look at Duke Caboom – an Evel Knievel-like stunt motorcyclist character which Reeves is voicing for the upcoming Toy Story 4.
Then came news about Bill and Ted Face The Music, currently in production, then the first trailers for John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum made an appearance.
In mid May, the release of John Wick 3 saw Avengers: Endgame finally ousted from the top slot of the US box office. This was swiftly followed by the announcement of a John Wick: Chapter 4.
Reeves then made a hugely popular appearance as (almost) himself in the hit Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe.
The 54-year-old star’s .. er… star, has risen so high that it looks like the whole internet has fallen for him, and Marvel studios are in agreement, it seems.
Recently, Comicbook.com‘s Brandon Davis managed to get a chat with Marvel’s Kevin Feige during the press rounds for Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. During the interview, Feige revealed that Marvel really want Keanu Reeves to star in a Marvel movie.
Feige revealed that Marvel tries to “talk to him for almost every movie we make.”
He also added, “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.”
There are plenty of scheduled upcoming Marvel offerings which we might see Reeves in. Sequels for Black Panther and Doctor Strange are due. There is also a Black Widow standalone and an Eternals movie in the planning.
Hopefully, Reeves will be able to find time to join Marvel soon. Watch this space.
And while we’re watching space, Feige also mentioned in the ComicBook.com interview that the last weekend of June will see a cinema re-release of Avengers: Endgame including extra footage that didn’t get into the original cinema cut. So keep an eye out for the re-release at a cinema near you.
