It seems the “John Wick” star is looking to take part in even more action as a new report claims Marvel Studios is in talks to bring Keanu Reeves into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with what is believed to be a role in the company’s upcoming “Eternals” movie.
According to the fan site MCU Cosmic, it seems that negotiations are already underway between Reeves and the studios. In the report, it claims Reeves would be joining Angeline Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and Richard Madden in the Eternals film, which will continue to expand the cosmic side of the franchise.
MCU Cosmic didn’t reveal what part Reeves might possibly be playing. In their report, they also note that he has not yet signed on to be part of the franchise as him and the studios are only in talks. However, it seems Marvel Studios is the one seeking Reeves to join the film.
Not much information has been revealed about The Eternals since Marvel Studios revealed that the film would be part of the MCU lineup of films. All fans know about the movie is what Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, said about it in an interview with Bionic Buzz last year.
“You’re reaction about not being familiar with the Eternals is perfect, because most people weren’t familiar with Guardians [of the Galaxy] and believe it or not there were people that were not familiar with Avengers or with Iron Man,” Feige says. “So for us, its finding great stories whether people have heard of them or not and bring them to the big screen in as amazing a ways as we can.”
In a more recent interview promoting “Captain Marvel,” Feige reiterated a lot of the same points.
“Eternals are one group, but we like the idea of introducing an ensemble, doing an ensemble movie from the start, as opposed to building up as we did with the first Avengers. More like Guardians, not tonally, but in terms of introducing a new group of people,” he said to Collider. “You were asking about ’60s, and ’70s before. Jack Kirby did an immense, amazing epic with Eternals that spans tens of thousands of years, and that’s also something we haven’t really done, which is why that among many other things post-Endgame, we find appealing.”
These “talks” have not been confirmed by Reeves or Marvel Studios and should ultimately be considered rumors at this time.
