The fans of MCU were quite closer to getting Keanu Reeves for the role of Captain Marvel, however the actor denied working for the role. He wanted to give his full attention to the role of the John Wick 3. The word is out that he was actively being persued for the role of Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel, however he couldn’t work for it because it clashed with the schedule of the John Wick 3.
According to wegotthiscovered the John Wick 3: Parabellum is kind of attractive project for Keanu Reeves because of the personal reasons. He is kind of attracted to the movie, this is the passion project for Reeves. Therefore, because of these reasons, he couldn’t put the production of the third part in jeopardy. There can be another reason behind the selection, the role of the Captain America can be played by various other actors whereas there is only one John Wick, who can be played by Keanu Reeves.
After watching the John Wick franchise one can admit that Keanu Reeves has successfully made him a fan of his acting skills and action powered adrenaline. Keanu Reeves is a perfect fit for the Marvel Universe, however, the way he speaks wouldn’t have been suitable for the Captain America. Rest is fine, he could have played the role with a little adjustment of the dates. In his previous interviews he had mentioned that he would like to do some super hero role. His background of getting involved in some hard stunts would make him a perfect fit for the MCU universe.
In the past, the closest he played the role of the superhero was in Constantine but it’s also worth noting that his roles in the movie The Matrix and Neo were also not lesser than the one being played by a super hero. Keanu Reeves can be a good choice for the Batman or Superman, but only the time will tell. Meanwhile, watch the trailer of John Wick 3, of course this is fan-made.
