Fans have long favored the role of Ghost Rider for Keanu Reeves if — or when? — he joins the MCU.
With the rigorously reviewedÂ The Matrix RevolutionsÂ now in the rearview mirror.Â Canadian Superstar Keanu ReevesÂ now looks onto the horizon where his next possible destination lies: theÂ Marvel Cinematic Universe.
For the second time since 2019. Reports again abound that Marvel Studios top dog Kevin Feige have sat down with theÂ John WickÂ star; back then, nothing concrete came to light from Feige’s end.Â
“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige told ComicBook.com back in 2019. “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.”
This time, though, it’s Reeves’ turn to confirm that, yes, the alleged conversations took place.
Speaking toÂ ComicBook.com. Reeves said that his chat with Feige indeed happened. But they’ve yet to arrive at anything solid for him to take part in.
“We have met, and [Kevin Feige]’s a cool cat. Yeah. But no, we don’t have anything,” said Reeves. Followed by a faint passion for a future position in the MCU realm: “Gotta find something.”
If that wasn’t enough, back in November, Reeves also gave positive answers to questions by Esquire about his Marvel future.
“It would be an honor. There are some really amazing directors and visionaries, and they’re doing something no one’s ever really done. It’s special in that sense in terms of the scale, the ambition, the production. So it’d be cool to be a part of that,” the 57-year-old said.
Reeves once again fanning the flames of speculations. While Marvel fans can only assume that theÂ ConstantineÂ actor will cross the borders sooner rather than later. It’s just a matter of role, and if we’re taking cues from fans online. They say one superhero icon that would probably suit Reeves’ stature the best is theÂ Ghost Rider.
Perhaps spurred by the chats they had back in 2019. The gears started turning in the minds of comic book fans to campaign on Reeves for the death-defying role. Why not? Not only has Reeves fulfilled the most kick-ass roles on screen. He also has a raspy voice and suave misdemeanor, but he’s also a motorcycle aficionado.
Perhaps his only contender to the role to date is “The Walking Dead” starÂ Norman Reedus. Norman also has a sizeable following begging for him to play Ghost Rider.
Regardless of which role Reeves ends up taking within the MCU. We’re more than certain the Canadian superstar would kick ass playing it.
