Keanu Reeves wants to play an iconic Marvel character

Keanu Reeves wants to play an iconic Marvel character

Reeves revealed in a recent interview that it'd be "great" to be part of the MCU, and there's one role his younger self would have wanted.

Everyone loves Keanu Reeves. The breathtaking Canadian actor, known for his roles in The Matrix and John Wick series, is more than just an iconic figure on screen - he’s all in all just a really nice guy. He and Brendan Fraser probably stand as two of the most-liked movie stars out there right now - there’s a reason why people are so excited for John Wick: Chapter 4 (beyond, y’know, the fact that it’s a new John Wick movie).

Anyway, given his popularity, it’s understandable that fans would be excited to see Reeves join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is a possibility that’s suddenly sounding a whole lot more real.

Set to premiere in early 2023 is Marvel's new Disney+ series, Secret Invasion - check out the trailer below.

As reported by The Independent, in a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jimmy Kimmel asked Reeves what roles he’d been offered by Marvel, a question which, for obvious reasons, he couldn’t answer. However, his answer did reveal that he’d clearly be very interested in joining the MCU: “You know what’s really cool, I mean I think, you know, the way that the Marvel films have developed and what they are is really, you know, spectacular, and it would be great to be a part of that.”

Kimmel then asked Reeves which Marvel character, as a 10-year-old, he’d want to play the most, and he had a pretty great answer: “I think he’d probably wanna be Ghost Rider.”

Ghost Rider has made a few appearances on screen over the years - Nicolas Cage, of course, took on the role of Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider and its sequel, Spirit of Vengeance. Then, a bit more recently, Ghost Rider appeared as Robbie Reyes in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (portrayed by Gabriel Luna). That doesn’t mean that Reeves is out of the question, though - surely within the Marvel multiverse, there’s a place for him somewhere.
