Keanu Reeves Reveals His Dream Superhero Role In The MCU

Surprisingly, Keanu Reeves is one of the biggest stars who hasn't played a superhero for Marvel or DC yet.

Fans have been speculating about the Matrix actor's time as a superhero for a while, with several reports of him joining one franchise or another spreading without success.

He recently voiced Batman in League of Superpets, which was as near to a superhero performance as he could go.

He recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his new comic book Brzrkr, and he revealed which Marvel superhero he'd like to play.

Reeves developed and wrote the comic Brzrkr, about an eternal warrior fighting through the ages. It will be adapted into an anime and a live-action film starring the actor.

Kimmel asked Reeves which Marvel superhero a 10-year-old version of himself would like to portray, and he replied, "Ghost Rider."

Kevin Feige has spoken to the actor multiple times about a prospective MCU debut and revealed the studio wants to "figure out the right way" for his entrance.

Given Reeves' leather jacket-donning, biker aura, fans have often fan-casted him as Ghost Rider. Hearing him say he'd want to portray the character would undoubtedly bring joy to many.

Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus have shown interest in playing the Marvel superhero. Nicolas Cage played Ghost Rider in two films, but Reeves would be a better match.

Meanwhile, Reeves is no stranger to superhero characters, having played a DC Comics character in the 2005 cult classic "Constantine."
