After the Russo Brothers suggested that the ‘John Wick’ star would be a perfect fit for the role of ‘Moon Knight,’ ardent MCU and Reeves fans went crazy. And who wouldn’t? Both the MCU and Keanu Reeves are hot properties in the world of popular culture.
Recently, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, publicly acknowledged that Marvel and Reeves have spoken on a few occasions about how Reeves can fit into the MCU but are yet to conclude.
James Gunn also gave a hint that he had an idea for a Moon Knight movie. But the prospect of that movie coming to life with Gunn at the helm is tough.
So, in the meantime, let’s look at some other Marvel characters that Reeves can play if he joins the MCU.
Hon’ble mentions: Johnny Blaze, Namor, Mephisto
1. Doctor Doom
Many of you guys might not agree with me on this one, but Keanu Reeves has the chops to portray the Latverian monarch without butchering it or being mediocre. Plus it will give the audience and Reeves something new and fresh.
2. Adam Warlock
Unlikely but possible? The reason why I say this is because no casting has been finalized for the role of Adam Warlock, who is set to appear in the upcoming Guardians movie. Although Zac Efron is rumored to be the first choice to be cast as the character, it wouldn’t hurt if Keanu got the part. I mean who wouldn’t want to see Keanu’s Adam interact with Hemsworth’s Thor and Pratt’s Star-Lord?
Probably the most obvious choice in the list. After Keanu, himself expressed his desire to play the legendary mutant, and many fans felt it was the perfect recast for the character. But there has been no update from either Reeves’ of Marvel’s part. Hence we can assume that it might be one of those dream scenarios that may never materialize. Never say never.
C’mon Marvel. Make It Happen.
