As the Marvel Cinematic Universe expands, Disney requires new talent to join their productions to bring new characters to life within their stories. And given that now almost everyone in Hollywood was or is playing one of those roles, Keanu Reeves could now have joined the MCU in a secret project.
According to information from Giant Freakin Robot, via Screen Geek, a report suggests that Keanu Reeves, the star of ‘John Wick’ and ‘The Matrix’ has been attached to a “secret role for Marvel”. However, the report does not detail which character it could be, but it would be an important one.

It is suggested that the role of Keanu Reeves would be for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, and not for a Disney + series: “We should see Keanu Reeves in an upcoming Marvel movie, and unless his plans go wrong, it is unlikely that we see announcements from you before it actually happens.”
This is one of Marvel’s great secret casting calls.”

Rumors assure that the character of Keanu Reeves could be introduced to the UCM in a similar way to what happened with Harry Styles when he was introduced as Eros at the end of ‘Eternals’. So even though Reeves shows up at Marvel, it could be a long time before he finally has a big screen story.

This information has not been confirmed by Marvel, however, if we take into account that Keanu Reeves is one of the great stars of Hollywood, it is likely that Kevin Feige’s company does not want him for a small superhero or a cameo, but for a transcendental character for the future of the UCM.
It would not be the first time that Marvel has added to its ranks an important actor or actress that they kept secret for a long time, and did not confirm until it appeared in the film, in addition to Harry Styles, it is also said that Charlize Theron, Finn Wolfhard and even John Krasinski could appear in future MCU projects.
This information could confirm the meetings between Marvel and Keanu Reeves since 2019, from which rumors have been born that the actor could give life to the new Ghost Rider, or even replace Hugh Jackman as the UCM Wolverine. Or the strongest rumors point out that he could be One Above All, one of the strongest characters in comics.
