The Marvel Cinematic Universe is no stranger to gobbling up major Hollywood talent for its growing cast of heroes, and Keanu Reeves certainly seems willing to join the MCU in the future, according to new comments from the star of The Matrix and John Wick series.
“It would be an honor [to join the MCU],” Reeves told Esquire in a new interview. “There’s 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.”

It’s not just speculative chit-chat, either. Back in 2019, as Reeves was enjoying a second renaissance with the release of John Wick 3: Parabellum, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that Marvel had been talking to Reeves “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,” Feige said. Feige reportedly drew a comparison between Reeves and Jake Gyllenhaal, who was approached for several Marvel roles before ultimately signing on to play Mysterio in the second Tom Holland Spider-Man film.
