Could be the next Marvel superhero?
It’s not out of the question, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Feige said theJohn Wick actor has been approached for discussions about nearly every Marvel cinematic release.
“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige said. “[W]e very much want to figure out the right way to do it.”
Feige proceeded to compare Reeves to Jake Gyllenhaal, who recently joined the MCU family with his role as Mysterio in the upcomingSpider-Man: Far From Home. He noted that discussions with Gyllenhaal cropped up on multiple occasions before the perfect role presented itself. Feige has high hopes that a similar situation will arise with Reeves.
For his part, Reeves has had a very successful run this decade. While the 54-year-old actor has found consistently strong roles since hisBill & Ted days, recent years have seen a large resurgence in his popularity. Since starring inJohn Wick in 2014, Reeves has appeared in a slew of popular franchises. In 2019 alone, he is starring inJohn Wick‘s third chapter andToy Story 4.He is even debuting in non-Matrixrelatedvideogames viaCyberpunk 2077.
Despite his success, Reeves has remained a surprisingly open and down-to-earth person in public. These traits have only helped in boosting his appeal for audiences, who recently started an online petition to see him named. The last few weeks have seen him charming his way through events and appearances. He won over the internet’s heart when he called a crowd at E3 “breathtaking,” and was recently dubbed “the internet’s boyfriend.”
Reeves’ rising popularity is not expected to fade anytime soon. With his numerous roles in popular franchises, in fact, he is set up to expand his fanbase even further. His role inToy Story 4, in particular, should see the birth of a whole new generation of Reeves fans. With a potential role in the MCU on the horizon, the Keanussance is in bloom.
