Many fans have been eagerly waiting to see if Keanu Reeves would ever step foot into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, according to a new report, it appears that the John Wick and Matrix star might’ve just nabbed his first Marvel role.
The report, which comes via GFR, suggests that Keanu Reeves has been attached to “a secret role for Marvel.” Unfortunately, that doesn’t it narrow it down much. However, they did suggest that his role is indeed set for a film set in the MCU – not just any random series.
As they’ve stated:
“So far, our source was able to confirm that the new project is a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as opposed to a series on Disney+. We should be seeing Keanu Reeves in an upcoming Marvel movie, and unless their plans go amiss, it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing any announcements for his part before it’s actually happening. This is one of the big Marvel secret castings.”
As such, they’ve suggested that this role might be introduced similar to Harry Styles when he appeared as Eros. So once we know who Keanu Reeves will be playing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it could be quite some time before we see his character properly fleshed out. Nevertheless, this is an exciting suggestion of what’s to come if true. Of course, this information should still be taken with a grain of salt. But considering Keanu Reeves is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, it isn’t exactly surprising that Marvel would want him for a major character.
With that in mind, fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any further updates on Keanu Reeves joining the MCU and who exactly he could be playing. The possibilities really are endless, especially with the Multiverse expanding, so it’ll be exciting to see what happens going forward.
