Keanu Reeves has saved the world in most of his films, however, in a recent interview the actor admits that he really wants to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and become a hero (or a villain?) Well, he did not specify, but what he did say is that he will feel honored if they ask him to.

Keanu Reeves has appeared in several films and franchises. We have seen him in Speed, in the Matrix franchise as Neo and saving the real world, in the John Wick saga as John saving his dog and taking revenge. and in Bill & Ted, where he also saves the world.

Keeping this in mind it seems that the only fandom he is missing is the MCU because if you recall correctly, he has starred as Constantine which is part of the DC Universe.

Talking specifically about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have seen some unthinkable actors be part of it. From Harry Styles to Sylvester Stallone and more recently Angelina Jolie, it seems that many A-List celebs are joining now so it should not surprise us if Keanu starts trending as the possible favorite one in an upcoming film.

Anyway, Keanu Reeves spoke recently with Esquire in a very extensive interview, and while there, he admitted that he wants to be part of the MCU and that he will feel honoured if something like this happens in the near future.

Keanu was asked if he would join the Marvel Universe if asked “Isn’t it bigger than a universe? It’s almost like a multiverse. It’s a Marvel-verse.” The actor said while laughing. "It would be an honor. Some really amazing directors and visionaries. They're doing something no one's ever really done. It's special in that sense, in terms of the scale, the ambition, the production. So it'd be cool to be a part of that," he said.

Keanu, who has starred in every single genre of films you can imagine from romantic to terror to drama, also revealed that what attracts him to accept a role in the story and how it is revealed ro the audience.

"There's always a relationship—a drama, a circumstance—in storytelling. But for me, it's cool when a work of art can entertain but also be inspirational or challenging or—I'm gonna bring up ye olde Bard—hold the mirror up. It's much more rewarding because it means that you're getting into it," he said.

This is not the first time that Keanu Reeves and the MCU are trending together. Back in 2019 Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios revealed that they had talk with Keanu Reeves for almost every movie they release.

“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," Feige said
