Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says they’ve talked with Keanu Reeves for nearly every Marvel Cinematic Universe film, but they’re waiting on the perfect role.
Feige discussed the studio’s future plans with Comicbook.com during a press tour for Spider-Man Far From Home in London, and when asked if Marvel was talking to Reeves for anything, Feige replied, “We talk to him for almost every film we make. 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 added that the studio underwent a similar process with Jake Gyllenhaal, who it spoke with several times before agreeing Mysterio was the perfect MCU role for the actor.
A recent rumor suggested that Marvel was in talks with Reeves about The Eternals. Although that was mostly speculation, it does seem like Marvel is looking to cast him in one of its upcoming films. In the meantime, Reeves will soon return to the role that initially made him famous, Ted Theodore Logan, in Bill & Ted Face the Music. He will also return in John Wick: Chapter 4 and hasn’t ruled out future John Wick movies as long as fans are interested in them.
Next up for Marvel Studios is Spider-Man: Far From Home, set to release on July 2. The film was directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
