Marvel wants Keanu in the MCU
Marvel Studios is showing interest in getting Keanu Reeves to join the cast of the upcoming film The Eternals.
According to MCU Comics, although it’s not yet known which role is Keanu being considered for, negotiations with the studio are well under way. Marvel producer Kevin Feige is excited about The Eternals.
“Your 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.”
“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.”
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.
The Eternals is expected to open in cinemas in November next year.
