America's sweetheart Keanu Reeves wants to be in a Marvel movie. See here, why it would be "a honor" for Neo to become part of the MCU.
[Update, December 27, 2021]
Keanu Reeves has recently spoken with comicbook.com in which he confirmed that him and Marvel have recently met to discuss possible roles and despite him saying that there hasn't been a role that he's supposed to play yet, they were looking to find one for him.
Needless to say, Keanu Reeves could probably pull off any character, so imo, that just confirms that he will indeed join the MCU soon.
Everyone loves Keanu Reeves and ideally, he soon might be in every film. The beloved actor/meme king recently revealed, that it would be "an honor" to be part of the MCU. Wowza! What exactly does that mean? And will he also be in another video game, after the desaster that was Cyberpunk 2077? See all details in this article.
Keanu Reeves Wants To Be In A Marvel Movie
Mr. Reeves, as his friends call him, recently came out to do an interview with our beloved colleageus at Esquire. And as usual he was extremely charming and very funny. And he revealed some really interesting and fun things. Reeves responded to years of speculation and rumors about him appearing in a Marvel movie. And he did so in a characteristically goofy, weird and charming manner:
"Isn't it bigger than a universe? It's almost like a multiverse… It's a Marvel-verse. It would be an honor. There's some really amazing directors, and visionaries, and they're doing something no one's ever really done. It's special in that sense in terms of the scale, the ambition, the production. So it'd be cool to be a part of that."
Can you imagine? Keanu Reeves in the MCU, in a Marvel movie... I personally don't like those films but gosh, even I can't resist the magic of Mr. Reeves. That would be so much fun. You know what else would be fun? To have Mr. Reeves in more video games! But that probably won't happen...
Keanu Reeves Does Not Want To Be In Video Games Anymore?
Signor Reeves steals our hearts on a regular basis, but in that interview he also broke some hearts. When asked about whether he would like to appear in more video games, more concretely if some of his characters like Neo and John Wick could show up in games like Mortal Kombat, he didn't seem very keen on it:
If it was up to me? No!
Well, that is pretty clear! Maybe he was burned by Cyberpunk 2077, which would be a shame. But maybe he just... doesn't want it. God knows why. I mean, Neo might pop up in Fortnite actually but that's not a real game anyway... just kidding, don't come for me.
So no, Keanu Reeves is probably not going to be in any video games for the time being. But we might see him pop up in the MCU... hey, you win some, you lose some. At least there will be a new Matrix movie coming out soon and we cannot wait for it.
