Earlier it was reported that negotiations with the aim of luring Keanu into his epic cinematic universe Marvel are ongoing. At the same time, according to the sad admission of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feigi, for many years they have been calling Reeves to themselves, but to no avail. However, the Marvel bosses do not lose hope to get the actor in the cast of "Eternal" - in the company of Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie, who, incidentally, will play for the first time in the movie comic.
And Keanu, by the way, had previously played in film comics, having made DC happy. True, the film "Constantine: Lord of Darkness" was released already in 2005. However, now DC along with colleagues from Warner Bros. don't mind filming a sequel, reports We Got This Covered, of course, with Reeves in the title role.
Meanwhile, the actor already has something to do – he will play in the sequel to The Matrix along with Carrie-Anne Moss.
There was also information that Reeves could play an antagonist in the next Fast & Furious spin-off.
In 2019, Keanu Reeves became the most beloved actor on the Internet. Soon his popularity will continue to grow as the star is going to shine in the fourth part of the film “The Matrix”. Amidst all this, it is not surprising that the two largest film comics studios - Marvel Studios and DC Films - want to get it for themselves to embody a new character. 55-year-old Keanu will make any movie box office.
Kevin Feigi said earlier that he is discussing with Reeves almost every project that his company is preparing, and so far, they simply haven’t found a suitable role. It can be Wolverine, Namor Submariner, Silver Surfer, Mr. Fantasy, Shan Chi or Adam Warlock. According to the American portal We got this covered, there were rumors on the Web that Warner Bros was shooting "Matrix 4" only to prevent Kean from starring in any Marvel movie.
“Now we just need to wait and see what happens. But if something is completely clear, then it is that everyone in Hollywood wants to work with Reeves,” the source said.
Keanu Reeves has risen to legendary status on the Internet, and after 35 years in the industry, you cannot say that he does not deserve it.
After the success of John Wick 3, which is one of the best blockbusters of the year, as well as his role in the animated film Toy Story 4, it seems that the 55-year-old is not going to stop. Reeves will return to Leo in the fourth part of the Matrix franchise, but this is far from the limit.
The actor is struggling Marvel Studios and DC Films, and the two studios are desperately trying to get him. Earlier it became known that DC and Warner Bros. were interested in returning Reeves to the role of Constantine, almost 15 years after he played the character. If the studio really intends to enter into a contract with Reeves, this may cause some problems with Marvel.
