Marvel likes to land actors, especially ones they really want. But sometimes it isn't easy. Keanu Reeves, known for various roles, such as The Matrix, has never been easy to land. They just haven't found a part he wanted to play.

But now, after years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe creators trying, they may have have found Keanu Reeves' role in Marvel, according to an inside source. It's said that Marvel has gotten Reeves' to sit down for real and consider a part.

He may be rebooting a franchise.

Reeves has a literal cult of fans following after him; they'll watch anything he's in. Despite this, he's never found his way to Marvel--and not for their lack of trying. He came close when he starred in Constantine for DC, but the film wasn't a success in the box office and developed a small following.

Marvel has NEVER been shy about trying to land Reeves. Why should they? Reeves has been busy with previous projects for the last few years, though. From coming out with John Wick: Chapter 4 to offering his voice to us all in Toy Story 4, he is also set to be in Bill & Ted Face the Music.

Some of these projects are scheduled to release this year and therefore may be delayed.

Kevin Feige, according to Vanity Fair has never hid his desire to introduce Reeves to the franchise that he runs. Like, he's got such a high standing in Hollywood, it'd only make sense they want to cast him. But finding a role he wants seems to be harder than anything in the world.

Feige shared that they speak to Reeves during every film they make, “We talk to him for almost every film we make, we talk to Keanu Reeves…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.”

Jake Gyllenhaal was offered several parts as well, before he accepted a role--Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

There were rumors that Reeves was set to play a character in The Eternals. but those rumors were ultimately decided to be false. The cast for the project included: Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, and Kit Harington, so still a pretty great cast.

An inside source claims that Marvel is about to get it's whale (hah, they're so obsessed with getting Keanu Reeves in the franchise, like Ahab in Moby-Dick).

A source that went to We Got This Covered said that Reeves is being eyed for the lead in a new Ghost Rider film. They're getting the details down pat, but Marvel wants Keanu Reeves to play Johnny Blaze.

There were no more details given, especially not about the negotiations, so it's up in the air about whether Reeves would be introduced in a crossover before he got his own film. Either way, it's easy to see that Marvel is working hard to get what they want; Keanu Reeves in the MCU sooner rather than later.

There are also reports of another Constantine film with DC, so Marvel may be running out of time. Due to Keanu Reeves' fame, a new Constantine film might take off especially if Warner Bros. moves forward really soon.
