Keanu Reeves’s 2019 domination isn’t stopping anytime soon with John Wick 3 and the upcoming Toy Story 4. Along with this, Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige has also revealed that they would love to get Keanu Reeves into the MCU in some form or fashion. As such it has just fueled fan speculation regarding what will be the perfect role for him to play in the MCU. A lot of ideas have been tossed around but recently Marvel writer Dan Slott threw out an idea- that Moon Knight was the perfect character for Keanu Reeves to play and it got a seal of approval as well from a name which has been synonymous with the character for years.
Keanu Reeves As Moon Knight
There’s just no doubt that one of the many gorgeous renditions of Moon Knight has been courtesy of Bill Sienkiewicz and he thinks Slott is onto something with the Keanu Reeves casting. He tweeted out:
“Dan, we are absolutely on the same page here. #KeanuReeves would be great as all the phases of Moon Knight #Marvel @KevinfeigeMCU”.

It all actually began with Slott’s initial tweet which read:
“I’m seeing lots of people saying Reed Richards, Adam Warlock, and Silver Surfer. My vote? Marc Spector: Moon Knight.”
Slot didn’t just being it up as an idea but supported his casting with several reasons why Reeves would knock the role out of the park. Dan said in his tweet:
“Whoever plays Moon Knight has to also be able able to pull off: Mercenary, Marc Spector. Cabbie, Jake Lockley and millionaire, Steven Grant. That’s your man for the job.”

Mercenary, Marc Spector.
Cabbie, Jake Lockley.
And Millionaire, Steven Grant.
That’s your man for the job.

Dan isn’t wrong. Part of what is so compelling about Moon Knight as a hero is how his differing personalities come into conflict and even pair up on occasion to get the job done. It results in a hero unlike any other. Reeves definitely has the range to pull off all these personalities of Spector and it will surely be a treat to see it on the big screen someday.
Marvel Studios’s Kevin Feige Wants Keanu Reeves In The MCU
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Feige said that they talk to Reeves pretty much every time they start work on a new movie:
“We talk to him for almost every film we make. We talk to Keanu Reeves about. 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.”
We are keeping our fingers crossed that everything falls into place and Keanu does end up joining the MCU.
