The Perfect Role For Keanu Reeves In The MCU?
During an interview of Joe and Anthony Russo with Kevin Smith, Smith asked Reeves’ joining the MCU. Anthony Russo said: “That’s a good question” and Joe Russo said: “it’s limitless” when it comes to roles for the beloved actor. But once Smith name dripped Moon Knight, then Joe Russo replied:
“Right, that’s a good call.”
But Moon Knight may not be Reeves’ top choice as the actor is running for another iconic Marvel character- Wolverine.
The 2019 Keanu Reeves Renaissance
This push for Keanu Reeves to join the MCU is part of the Keanu Renaissance which has gripped for internet this year. This is because Keanu Reeves is having a great 2019 right now.
