Keanu Reeves Would Love To Play Wolverine Next

The iconic Keanu Reeves is the only celebrity people are talking about right now thanks to his appearance at E3 2019.

Showing up on stage in a surprise reveal to announce his role in CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077, Reeves blew up the internet in the best way possible.

It seems the John Wick actor isn’t setting the bar low with his dream roles, as he’s recently revealed that he’d love to get his claws into Wolverine.

During a segment on BuzzFeed Celeb, the actor was asked which character he’d most like to play in the MCU or the DCU.

“When I was a kid, I always wanted to play Wolverine. So Wolverine.” He replied.

While the X-Men franchise has often struggled, Wolverine has often been the one redeeming quality over the years, so with the franchise entering the MCU we’d expect it to be handed over to someone capable.

Who is more capable than Keanu Reeves?

Perhaps it wouldn’t be Wolverine though, recent rumours had already linked Reeves with Marvel but for a role in The Eternals.

According to MCU Cosmic talks are still in early stages between Reeves and Marvel but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who would be disappointed by the potential addition.

Should the rumour materialise, Reeves would be joining the likes of Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden for the film, which is set to be directed by Chloe Zhao.

Jolie is rumoured to be tackling the role of Sersi, while Richard Madden is being touted for the role of Ikaris.

Marvel Studios boss, Kevin Feige, has previously confirmed that work had already began on the film, as well as other projects.

“We have started working on what are the films post-phase 3,” Feige previously told TheWrap.
