Marvel Has Been Trying to Get Keanu Reeves Into the MCU For a While Now

After starring in an iconic movie, Keanu Reeves goes into hibernation until he finds another iconic movie to resurface with. He went from Bill & Ted to Point Break to Speed to The Matrix to John Wick. I’m not going to mention all those movies he did in between because that would ruin my narrative. But my point is Keanu Reeves is a national treasure and Kevin Feige realizes this because for every Marvel movie, he gives him a call.

“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige laughed. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about. 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.”

Feige went on to compare Reeves to Jake Gyllenhaal, saying that they talked to the Spider-Man: Far From Home star “multiple times” until the perfect role (Mysterio) appeared. They’re hoping a similar situation will occur with Revees, and that he will join the wide world of Marvel when the right role presents itself.

Judging by how much money Marvel wants to milk out of its fans, there’s going to be another 50 years of Marvel movies so if he doesn’t break down by then, they can just switch up his dementia medication and trick him into one of their movies.
