Reeves is also confirmed to star in a fourth John Wick movie, now slated for a 2021 release. With talent ranging from screen legends like Robert Redford to rising young stars such as Zendaya spending time in the MCU these past few years, it does seem like it's only a matter of finding the right part for Reeves.

In a new interview with Comicbook.com, the Marvel Studios president was asked whether he had spoken with Reeves about getting involved at some point with a Marvel film. Although it hasn't worked out just yet, Feige is still hopeful that his day in the MCU will come.

"We talk to him for nearly every film we make", Kevin told Comic Book.

Marvel Studios' decade-long Infinity Saga concluded with the release of Avengers: Endgame and the fourth phase of the MCU is set to officially begin after Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters next month.

Reeves is now enjoying the kind of mid-career thirst boon usually reserved for when a former 90s teen heartthrob goes grey and starts taking roles in low-budget Sundance darlings, but unlike any of them, this upswing in popularity seems to have legs. Before that, he reportedly came close to joining Captain Marvel as Yon-Rogg, a role that ultimately went to Jude Law.

Currently, Reeves is returning to the franchise that made him a star in Bill & Ted Face the Music. Production on that film started earlier this week.

It is my firm belief that after his very wholesome public actions you may have seen on the internet, the Box Office would blow up with a Keanu Reeves Wolverine standalone movie, or a future X-Men movie in Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe of movies, as I also believe he is one of the only actors in the world capable enough to portray Wolverine after Hugh Jackman's portrayal.

Pain heals, and chicks dig scars, but glory lasts forever, Keanu Reeves once told us in The Replacements.
