It’s been reported to us by sources who claim to have close ties with Marvel Studios that Keanu Reeves is currently in talks with Marvel for a role in a future MCU TV show. Now, full disclosure, they weren’t able to tell me which TV show he’s in talks for.
It’s long been rumoured that Reeves could be coming to the MCU. Kevin Feige himself revealed that he’s a big fan of the actor and also admitted they’ve been trying to find the right role for him to play in the MCU. Well, it seems as though Marvel and Reeves have finally found that role.
I was also told by my sources that this role is going to debut in one of Marvel Studios’ TV series which could be coming to Disney Plus. Kevin Feige did announce a whole load of new shows at the recent Disney Investor’s Day presentation. Maybe he could be in talks for one of those shows, however, my money’s on him appearing in the much-rumoured Ghost Rider TV show.
Keanu Reeves is in talks with Marvel Studios for a role in a future series
Here’s what the first source who came to me with this information had to say about Keanu Reeves reportedly being in talks with Marvel Studios for a role in the MCU:
Keanu Reeves and Marvel Studios are currently in talks over a role in a future Marvel TV series which hasn’t been officially revealed yet.
I then pressed the source for more information about what the role and the Marvel TV series could be, and they had this to add:
The role is still undisclosed, but what I’m hearing is that it’s for a series involving Ghost Rider.
Another source, one I’ve worked with in the past, then corroborated the first source and also had this to add:
Yes. I can confirm that Keanu Reeves is in talks for a role in the MCU. It’s for one of Marvel’s upcoming shows. What I do not know is which series it will be.
Again, it does seem as though these are very early talks between Marvel Studios and Keanu Reeves. We know that Kevin Feige has been trying to bring Keanu Reeves over to the MCU for quite some time. They just haven’t been able to find the right role for the actors. However, it seems as though they might have been able to agree on the perfect Marvel role for Keanu, which is great news.
Who could Keanu play in the MCU?
Now, we’re going to go into speculation territory. What I’m thinking is that this could be in connection with the much rumoured upcoming Ghost Rider TV show that might be coming to Disney Plus in the future. Now, does this mean that Reeves could be about to play Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider? Perhaps. There have been so many rumours out there which have suggested that Reeves is up for the role of Ghost Rider.
However, I do wonder if he’s right for the role. I think he would be great as a mentor character in a Ghost Rider TV series. He’s shown that he’s brilliant in action movies over the years, so I would love to see him be involved in a Marvel movie.
