At the halfway point of the year, there are two clear and obvious winners of 2019 so far. The first is the MCU. Between Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, the studio has made roughly 70 kazillion dollars at the global box office. The other is beloved international treasure and all around wonderful human being Keanu Reeves. With John Wick 3, Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4, the announcement of Bill & Ted 3, and the trailer for Cyberpunk, it’s Keanu’s world and we’re just lucky to walk on its sacred ground.
But what would they each be capable of if Keanu and the MCU came together? Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige recently told Comicbook.com he’s been trying to make that exact dream scenario happen for years. “We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige said. “I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.”
A couple of things: 1) YES. We beseech thee, Odin the All Father to please make this happen. 2) Refer to #1. But forget a single future role. What if Keanu Reeves played every role in the franchise? He could do it too. Here’s Keanu as some of our favorite Marvel characters, as expressed in GIFs (all via GIPHY). Think of it as the KeanCU.
Captain America (Who Can Do This All Day)
Thor with His Friend Rocket
And of course, because he has INCREDIBLE range, Keanu as….
That last one definitely counts, especially because after adding Keanu Reeves to the MCU the only way to make it even better would be to cast more adorable animals in the franchise.
But someone should really make sure Marvel’s villains know what happens if you harm one of Keanu Reeve’s pets.
