Is Keanu Reeves Part of Marvel’s The Eternals Characters?

Keanu actor Charles Reeves hails from Canada. Acting roles that made Reeves famous include those in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Speed, Point Break, and The Matrix films (in which he played Neo). Famous filmmakers like Gus Van Sant (1991’s My Own Private Idaho) and Bernardo Bertolucci (1988’s period drama Dangerous Liaisons) have cast him in their films (in the 1993 film Little Buddha).

The New York Times film writer, Janet Maslin, lauded Reeves’ adaptability in her reviews of his 1991 films “demonstrates impressive self-control and variety. In a police procedural, he can adopt a stiff, serious persona, while in a comedy, he can adopt a more relaxed, playful one.”

His many portrayals, from Ted Logan to Buddha to Neo to Johnny Mnemonic to John Constantine to Klaatu, all share a common goal: to save the world.

Reeves, who is best known for his roles as Neo in The Matrix movies and as John Wick in the John Wick series, was reportedly in talks to feature in The Eternals in June 2019, but he never did.

One publication reported that “talks” were “still in the early stages,” but that “negotiations” were “underway,” citing MCU Cosmic.

Angelina Jolie was supposed to portray Sersi, but she ended up playing Thena instead; Richard Madden was supposed to play Ikaris, but he actually did; and Kumail Nanjiani and Ma Dong-Seok were already in the cast (they play Kingo and Gilgamesh, respectively).

Fans have been waiting impatiently for Keanu Reeves to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe since rumours started to circulate that he might play Doctor Strange or possibly Captain Marvel.

How Come He Couldn’t Play Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel?

Keanu Reeves “nearly joined the cast” of Captain Marvel, according to Screen Rant, before the rumours about him being in The Eternals even surfaced.

Jude Law was ultimately cast in the part. He portrayed Yon-Rogg, the commander of Starforce and a member of the Kree Empire. One of Captain Marvel’s first antagonists in the comics is Yon-Rogg.

However, due to a scheduling conflict between John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and the Marvel Studios production, Keanu Reeves was unable to take on the role.

For those that follow the series, John Wick 4 will now be available on March 24, 2023. Just before Christmas, Lionsgate announced the new date in a YouTube video.

What Has Keanu Reeves Said About Joining MCU from 2014 to 2021?

Reeves discussed the prospect of portraying Doctor Strange with Collider in October 2014, which was more than seven years ago at this point.

He answered, “I like the idea. I watch those kinds of films. I was raised on them, comic books, and graphic novels. But, he continued, “I didn’t read that as a youngster, so I wasn’t familiar with Doctor Strange as a character.

The following day, Screen Rant said – in front of him, no less – than Keanu Reeves would make the best Doctor Strange.

(The Benedict Cumberbatch-starring film was released in 2016)

I don’t know much about Doctor Strange, but I like that kind of stuff, Reeves said in response. Not exactly a chat to brag about, but the thought stuck.

Right Now, How Does He Feels About It?

Reeves referred to the MCU as “greater than a cosmos” in a November 2021 episode of Esquire’s YouTube series.

“It resembles a multiverse almost. It is the Marvel universe.

And is he interested in joining the franchise?

“It would be an honour, you know. There are some very amazing visionaries and filmmakers. Nobody actually has ever done what they’re doing. It would be amazing to be a part of that because it is unique in that sense of scope, ambition, and production.

Finally, Esquire announced in February 2021 that Reeves had received an offer for the part of Kraven the Hunter in a stand-alone SUMC film. However, as things stand, according to IMDB, Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be portraying the role in the 2023 release of the film.

Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, or SUMC, is distinct from the MCU, though no one is quite sure how; Keanu Reeves appears in neither as of yet.
