Keanu Reeves Reveals What Fans Have Speculated For Years

If Keanu Reeves could hop in the phone booth time machine from the Bill & Ted films, apparently there is one role he'd go after.

The soft-spoken actor, who everyone just seems to love, has explored pretty much every genre in his incredible, decades-long career. He's done arthouse fare like My Own Private Idaho, rom-coms like Something's Gotta Give, and certainly his fair share of action movies. Actually, make that action franchises.

He dodged bullets in the Matrix trilogy as the cool, calm, and collected Neo, and recently, he had a massive career resurgence as the revenge-seeking John Wick. The stylish film franchise, in which Reeves stars as the gifted namesake assassin, has grossed $580 million. In a 2019 interview with GQ, Reeves revealed that he plans to play the dog-loving "Baba Yaga" for as long as audiences plan to keep buying tickets. Reeves told the magazine he'd take the role ...

"As far as my legs can take me. As far as the audience wants to go."

Plus, there's his scene-stealing appearance in Netflix's Always Be My Maybe, and his voice work in Toy Story 4…just to name a few of his recent projects. It really is a "Keanuaissance", and we're all just living in it.

But there's one franchise the star feels he could have, let's say, gotten his claws into. In an interview with Sirius XM on August 25, 2020 alongside pal and co-star in 2020's Bill & Ted Face the Music, Alex Winter, Reeves was asked if there were any parts he would have traveled back in time to play. And the actor did not hesitate in naming a certain grizzled Marvel superhero.

Reeves, however, disagreed, saying:

"It is too late. [The role has] been filled really well, and I'm all good with it now."

That admission, as Reeves surely expected, drew the attention of Marvel and X-Men fans online. One Twitter user, making an excellent point about Keanu's vitality, posted,

"It would be great to see him do it. Both him and Logan don't age anyway."

While another simply wrote,


Of course, the claw-fisted Marvel comics character has long been portrayed by Hugh Jackman, who's amazingly embodied the misunderstood mutant in nine feature films over nearly 20 years. But there's hope. The Aussie who arguably defined the character on screen in all its shirt-ripping, chiseled-bodied, grizzled voiced glory recently stepped down from the role. Speculation has grown about the new Wolverine, and if Marvel might consider Keanu to play the role next. Sadly, here's why that's unlikely, albeit with a silver lining that involves Reeves possibly making his way into the MCU after all.

Unfortunately, it seems Reeves is an unlikely pick to play the next Wolverine, due to his age. It's not a problem for us, but it is apparently for Marvel president Kevin Feige. He is reportedly taking over the X-Men franchise, recasting most of the X-Men mutant family, and looking for a younger Wolverine.

The formula worked for Spider-Man, as the young Tom Holland has now played the web-slinger for five Marvel films. And since Keanu Reeves is four years Hugh Jackman's senior, it seems unlikely that he would fit Marvel's new vision.

The good news? Marvel has been courting Keanu for years. In June 2019, during the press tour for Spider-Man: Far From Home, Feige was asked if Reeves had ever been considered for a Marvel role. Feige said,

"We talk to him for almost every film we make. 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."

So, while Reeves may not be suiting up as Wolverine, we're pretty sure that, sooner or later, Feige will find a way to bring the world's most beloved actor into the world's biggest movie franchise. It's only a matter of time.

I would much prefer to see him play a character such as Gambit.
I would love to see him play any Marvel character.
I'd love to see Keanu play a real dirty villain. It would be so opposite of him. I think he'd do a good job and probably have a lot of fun being really evil.

Brandy Carter:
Actors should be given a "character/part" according to the age they appear and not the actual age that they are...providing of course, they qualify at their craft.
After all, television and cinema are all about fantasy and make believe.
Regardless of what we do, who we are and where we go, there'll always be some type of discrimination.
Curious if there's a shortage of imaginative writer's with the ability to create a new action hero for the "young at heart and the young in appearance" ever so talented, Keanu Reeves?

I see a couple of comments talking about which Marvel character Reeves can play. The answer is: all of them. He's such a perfect actor that no matter if he's Gambit, Wolverine, or Dr Doom, he''ll do fabulous.

Even if he cannot play the role in an Xmen movie, he could play the role on SNL. Has he hosted? If not, he should; bring on Alex for a bit more Bill and Ted just for the heck of it.
