Earlier this year, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed previous discussions with Keanu Reeves about playing a role for nearly every project they’ve made, prompting fans to ramp up their calls to see the John Wick star join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Keanu Reeves has expressed an interest in portraying the MCU’s Wolverine, filmmaker Kevin Smith proposed seeing the actor play Moon Knight during a conversation with Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo for IMDB.

After Kevin Smith asked the MCU filmmakers who they would like to see Keanu Reeves play, Joe Russo noted the possibilities are “limitless.” However, Joe Russo agreed with Kevin Smith’s suggestion of seeing Keanu Reeves bring Moon Knight to life, stating, “Right, that’s a good call.”
