Keanu Reeves has spoken, he is interested in being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
In an interview with Esquire, Reeves said that “It would be an honor to join the MCU”. Let’s hope Marvel will take note of what he says and finally cast him in a role.
In an interview with Comicbook.com in 2019, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige claimed that he considers Keanu for every film they create.
The question is not about the possibility of Keanu Reeves coming to the MCU, The question is when?
Which superhero will Keanu Reeves fit in MCU?
If we want a cool guy like Keanu Reeves in MCU, we obviously have to give him a main/cooler role in the Marvel Universe. These are the roles we think are suitable for Keanu Reeves.
We all know Reeves has a major interest in motorcycles, (he owns a motorcycle company) and we think that Ghost Rider would be a perfect fit for him as he has the age and interest of the character.
Back In 2007 and 2011, Nicolas Cage was cast in the role of Ghost Rider for both movies but we think that Reeves is a better fit.
With the MCU doing reboots of older movies, there is always a chance that this Reeves could be cast for Ghost Rider. Don’t think so? Let’s ask ourselves, how many Spider-man and Hulks have we seen?
The answer is… It is very possible!
We all know that Reeves is a top-of-the-list Hollywood star and it would not be fair for him to be cast as an “uncool character”.
In comic books, Silver Surfer sacrifice himself to save his world but holds a grudge while waiting for an opportunity to execute his revenge on Galactus. Revenge? Sounds like Mr. John Wick.
We all know that MCU is rebooting some of the best movie series such as Fantastic 4, We think he will be perfect for the role.
We all know that in MCU, captain Marvel is portrayed as the female version which is unfamiliar for comic book fans that always see Captain Marvel as a guy character.
As the multi-verse story begins to unfold, in the upcoming Spider-Man No Way Home. We believed that future stories could have heroes from another universe which brings the male version of Captain Marvel back.
We think Reeves would fit in this role.
