In an interview with Esquire, Keanu Reeves broke the silence on rumors surrounding his possible entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Praising the studio’s work, the actor revealed that it would be an honor to participate in the MCU.
“It would be an honor! [O MCU] have amazing, visionary directors, and they’re doing something that nobody’s done before. It is something special, in terms of scale, ambition and production. It would be nice to be a part of it. “
The actor’s name has been probed by the studio for some time, and it’s speculated that he could bring the villainous Nightmare to life – set to be introduced in the post-credits scene of “Doctor Estranho no Multiverso na Loucura” .
Reeves is played by Marvel and DC, but the former wins the negotiations.
The Nightmare is one of the main character’s more traditional enemies and is an interdimensional demon that feeds on people’s fears while they sleep.
However, no confirmation has been made.
In 2019, Kevin Feige expressed his interest in introducing Reeves to the MCU: “We invite him in almost every movie we make. I’m not sure when or if he’ll be joining Marvel’s Universal, but we’re very interested in finding a good way to make that happen.
It’s worth remembering that Reeves’ new film, the highly anticipated “Matrix Resurrections,” hits nationwide theaters on December 22.
