Keanu Reeves Finally Admits What We Suspected All Along

Everybody's favorite actor, Keanu Reeves, recently took part in an interview with Sirius XM, accompanied by his buddy and Bill & Ted Face the Music co-star Alex Winter. Asked if there were any characters he wished he could travel back in time to play, Reeves didn't hesitate to name-drop a certain grizzled, Canadian, adamantium-infused mutant.

Reeves likely knew that what he was saying was going to send X-Men fans into a tizzy. The X-Fandom has long linked the actor with that particular role, and when it came time for Hugh Jackman to step down from the part, speculation ignited anew that Marvel might take a look at Reeves to play the next iteration of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, there's probably no way that will happen.

Following Disney's acquisition of Fox, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is taking over the X-Men movie franchise, and is reportedly looking to recast Wolverine with a younger actor. With the potential exception of Deadpool, the entire X-Men line-up will likely be recast with younger stars. Reeves is almost a whole four years older than Jackman - who’s in his early 50s, making his chances of playing a Wolverine slim to none... unless Marvel wanted to employ him for flash-forward sequences at some point.

Just to be clear, though, Reeves didn't bring up W-olverine just to toy with fans' hearts. When asked to confirm that he was serious about his pining for the role, the actor said, quote, "Oh, yeah. Frank Miller's Wolverine? For sure."

There are about a million reasons why Frank Miller is a comics legend, and for Marvel, the writer and artist did some of his most tremendous work. In the early '80s, Miller successfully rebooted Daredevil. Many of the traits we now take for granted about Matt Murdock his strong moral code, his Catholicism, his tortured inner battle over his crime-fighting career were Miller's doing.

In 1982, Miller and the equally legendary comics writer Chris Claremont were sharing a cab on the way back from San Diego Comic-Con, when they conceived the idea for a four-part miniseries centered on Wolverine, the X-Man who had swiftly risen to become one of Marvel's most popular characters since his 1974 introduction. Keep watching the video to see that Keanu Reeves finally admits what we suspected all along.

Jackman was robbed of an Oscar nom along with Logan, the movie. That movie deserved a nomination for best picture.

Keanu is the kind of man no one talks about that much, but once someone brings him up, we all agree on loving him.

Doesn't need to revive Logan in the MCU, you just send John Wick with a pencil

Reeves is a good actor and all, but I don't see him as Wolverine.

I’d like to see a short and stocky, muscular dude play Wolverine.
Thasender Bolt
Thasender Bolt:
I mean if anyone’s able to play someone like Wolverine it should be the guy who plays John Wick
Blagg Zear
Blagg Zear:
Keanu is way to "cool" to play the hot-tempered Wolverine. But who knows, how'd he interpreted Wolverine.
David McDaniel
David McDaniel:
I think Keanu should be The One Above All, if they ever bring him in the MCU.
David Farnell
David Farnell:
Who else read the title and thought.
“He admitted that he’s the nicest person in Hollywood?”

He would be perfect for Ra's Al Ghul, but then Bruce Wayne would die.
label613
label613:
I just want him to be someone who runs into Morbius. Just so he can say "Morbius?"
Kuya117
Kuya117:
I know I'm going to get hate for this but I would love to see him reprise his roll as John Constantine. (Yes I know that's DC)

Keanu Reeves as Mr. Sinister would be absolutely epic.

rochab77:
I cant imagine anyone who could replace Hughe Jackman as wolverine. He was and will be the best guy for the job period. But I think Reeves could be a good wolverine.
Federico Rudolph
Federico Rudolph:
Reeves will be perfect as a final villian. A very powerful one, with some kind of stoic personality, everyone will fear him.
Rafi M
Rafi M:
IF KEANUE PLAYED WOLVERINE...
HE WOULD LIKELY HAVE PENCILS AS CLAWS.
Michael Blackwell
Michael Blackwell:
I still think Clint Eastwood's son would make an awesome wolverine.
SmokeLingers

Reeves should try get into Altered Carbon if that's getting more seasons.
Hornet Gaming
Hornet Gaming:
Reeves would make a good Dr Strange.. but I think realistically he would fill Robbie Reyes (Ghost Rider). He loves bikes too!
djmikio
djmikio:
Logan is really short in the comics. Hugh Jackman was actually cast quite tall for the role let alone Keanu
KillaMethodTheShinobi

Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider would be a better fit, imo.

“OK team Hugh Jackman has officially retired as wolverine... Who can we possibly cast who is nice enough, cool enough, and damn likable enough to preserve the standards of goodness he has set?”
“Keanu Reeves?“
“Dammit Johnson you’re promoted!

Rick Bruins

I would love to see Keanu as forge in a X-men movie
Neil
Neil:
Looper doesn't know what they're talking about. Wolverine ages slowly and is over a century old. They could easily cast Keanu Reeves for a grizzled Logan that looks like he's in his mature prime. If they want to cast a 20-something, maybe not so much.
Napalm In The Morning
Napalm In The Morning:
I thought it was gonna be the revelation that he’s actually just Jesus returned and has been waiting for the right time to tell us all.
Skynobi

Keanu sure likes the name John/Johnny and it suits him perfectly. Johnny Silverhand from Cyberpunk 2077 and umm Johnny Blaze 🤔

I see him more as Ghost Rider, no movie has done that justice yet so maybe he may be offered a role in the future.

Adam Warlock would be a good part for Reeves in the MCU

Imagine if he played Galactus. Just a random thought of course.
