If you’ve been on the internet this month, you’d have noticed that everyone’s raving about Speed star Keanu Reeves. Thanks to a lead role in the John Wick franchise and seemingly an additional role each month, Reeves is now the collective heartthrob of social media. On top of that, ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis asked Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige if he had thought the actor would ever join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he admitted they try getting Reeves on board nearly every film the studio makes.
Keanu Reeves on joining the MCU
“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige laughed. “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.”
Suffice to say, Twitter starting flooding with fans trying to fancast the actor as an MCU character and we’ve compiled some of the best responses below.
Avengers: Endgame is now in the theaters ahead of Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 2nd. Captain Marvel is now available wherever movies are sold.
Who do you think Keanu Reeves should play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
I'm seeing lots of people saying Reed Richards, Adam Warlock, and Silver Surfer.

Here me out: What if he's just "Keanu Reeves?"
We've established the MCU is a separate universe from our own via the different Presidents, so maybe the Keanu Reeves of
Earth-199999 joined The Avengers? His powers are "being Keanu Reeves," which is already more than Hawkeye does https://t.co/ySXYk2WHOw

Hmm… #KeanuReeves in the MCU? I think he'd be a great Silver Surfer or Adam Warlock, or if we go the villain route- Dracula, Kraven, or Mr. Sinister. Dracula, Blade and Doctor Strange in the same movie sounds ridiculous. Jason Wyngarde might be too on the nose/ meme-ish. pic.twitter.com/v0ULe4OV9R
