In a recent interview where he answered questions while playing with several puppies, John Wick 3 star Keanu Reeves shared that he’d love to have a chance to play Wolverine. While this is highly unlikely to happen, it seems that we might actually get to see him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, albeit in a different role.

According to a recent rumor on the fan site MCU Cosmic, Reeves is currently in talks with Marvel to play a part in its upcoming movie The Eternals, though it’s unclear which role the actor is being considered for or how the negotiation process is going.

Interestingly, this is allegedly not the first time Marvel has tried to get Keanu Reeves on board with one of its movies. Last year, there were reports that the actor was chosen to play Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel, but he later had to turn down the role – which ultimately went to Jude Law – because the filming schedule would conflict with that of John Wick 3.

Do note that all of this is still rumors at this point. Nothing has been confirmed as of this moment, so you should take it with a grain of salt.

Still, it seems The Eternals is putting together a pretty incredible cast. So far, it has been confirmed that Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie will star in the movie alongside Richard Madden, who portrayed Robb Stark in HBO’s massively popular TV series Game of Thrones.

The Eternals is believed to be one of the movies to kick off the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after phase 3 is wrapped up by Spider-Man: Far From Home next month, but again, there is no official announcement on this just yet. Marvel did promise that more details about its future plans will be revealed after Spidey’s second standalone movie however, so we’ll see.
