The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a global phenomenon for about a decade, and Keanu Reeves is one of the most prominent names in Hollywood recently. Thus, the prospect of these two coming together is certainly an exciting one. Rumors have been going of such a thing happening, getting fans’ hopes up, and now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has given us even more reasons to believe.

In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the Marvel boss confirmed that there had been regular talks about the John Wick star becoming a part of the MCU. From what he said, it’s mainly a question of finding the right role and right time for Reeves.

“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige commented. “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.”

According to the report from ComicBook, Feige also compared the situation to that of Jake Gyllenhaal, who was approached for multiple roles in different Marvel movies before finally becoming Mysterio in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Other (unconfirmed) rumors suggest that we might get to see Reeves in the MCU relatively soon, with the actor possibly taking a role in The Eternals, starring alongside Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and others. Marvel will be revealing more details about its future plans later this summer, so hopefully we'll get something more by then.

If Keanu Reeves does come to the MCU, it would be another highlight in an already stellar year for him. His recent movie John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum enjoyed massive commercial as well as critical success, and the actor recently gave the audience a pleasant surprise in E3 by announcing that he'll be having a major role in the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077. Another John Wick movie is also scheduled for a 2021 release, and fans are even signing a petition on Change.org to make him 2019’s Time Magazine Person of the Year.
