Keanu Reeves Reveals the MCU Role He Wants To Play The Most

Actor Keanu Reeves has confirmed the one Marvel character he’d most like to play in the MCU. While the popular Matrix and John Wick star has had talks with Marvel Studios in the past, he’s yet to have an official role as an Avenger or otherwise in the MCU. However, it seems as though it will only be a matter of time given his eagerness for one hero in particular.

Taking part in a Reddit AMA to promote John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves was asked if there’s ever been a role he’s regretted turning down. While Keanu claimed there wasn’t, he did reveal the Marvel superhero he’s wanted to play over the years:

“…No…but I did always want to play Wolverine.”

Having teased his Wolverine interest before, it’s exciting to see Reeves doubling down considering Marvel Studios now has the rights to the X-Men franchise and has already begun introducing mutants into the MCU. However, Deadpool 3 is set to feature Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson in the multiverse. That being said, perhaps Reeves could debut as Weapon X afterward in the primary MCU.

Who Else Could Keanu Reeves Play In The MCU (Besides Wolverine)

While one could argue that Keanu Reeves may now be too old to play a new version of Wolverine, the great thing about the X-Men’s most popular hero is that Logan’s over 200 years old due to his impressive healing factor. As such, the age range of actors who could play Wolverine is much wider than for other heroes. However, there are other characters beyond Wolverine whom Reeves could play as well. Case in point, Keanu also once voiced an interest in playing Marvel’s Ghost Rider, aka Johnny Blaze.

Having turned down the role of Captain Marvel villain Yon-Rogg in the MCU (which ultimately went to Jude Law), it appears as though Reeves is holding out for a larger role he can truly be passionate about. Furthermore, it’s been implied that Reeves has a strong ongoing relationship with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios who are seemingly just as interested in bringing him into the fold at some point down the line. If not to play Wolverine, then hopefully a hero or villain with just as much name recognition and the same intensity belonging to many of Reeves’ biggest roles such as Neo or John Wick.

While nothing has been confirmed thus far for Keanu Reeves and his potential future in the MCU, it’s great to see that he’s still interested. It’s also evident that Wolverine (or someone similar) is a large preference for the actor. If not Wolverine, here’s hoping Marvel Studios can find Reeves the perfect hero to play in the near future.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
