It would be hard to pin down the role that made Keanu Reeves as beloved by audiences as he is today. The Matrix was a pretty big moment. John Wick won a lot of fans over. There may be a case to be made for that BuzzFeed video he did with all the puppies. Whatever it was that won over the hearts of global audiences, he’s one of the A-list actors every franchise could use on their side. Now, we’re hearing he’s signed on for an important new part. A trusted and proven inside source for Giant Freakin Robot shares that Keanu Reeves has been cast in a secret role for Marvel.

So far, our source was able to confirm that the new project is a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as opposed to a series on Disney+. We should be seeing Keanu Reeves in an upcoming Marvel movie, and unless their plans go amiss, it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing any announcements for his part before it’s actually happening. This is one of the big Marvel secret castings.

Our source shares that this casting is similar to how Marvel cast Harry Styles, in that the studio put off telling audiences what to expect from his character for a long time. Eventually, they introduced him in the credits for Eternals, and we’re still waiting to see his role as Eros develop, or for the studio to announce what movies he’ll be appearing in. While Giant Freakin Robot learned months ago that Charlize Theron has a role for Marvel, we’re still waiting for news on what that part will be.With that understanding, we know to expect the unexpected for the new Keanu Reeves role at Marvel.

Of course, we know that fans have wanted to see Keanu Reeves join Marvel as Ghost Rider. The popular fan casting is impossible to miss. Is there any chance that Reeves could appear via the Multiverse as a Ghost Rider variant? Absolutely that is possible. However, we have no information to suggest that’s going to happen. What we know is that Keanu Reeves has been cast, it’s going to be in a movie, and that they’re going to do their very best to keep this one secret to really make big waves at the theater when it drops.

There are so many upcoming opportunities for Keanu Reeves to appear in a Marvel movie. Could he be in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness? That one is coming up pretty soon. Currently, filmmaker James Gunn is working on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3, which is expected to release on May 5, 2023. James Gunn has already been hinting that a lot of unexpected appearances will happen in that movie, so it seems like a great one to surprise audiences with an unexpected appearance. The Marvels, also premiering in 2023, has been kept under extreme lock and key so far, with very little known about it, making it an easy place to hide Keanu Reeves. Whichever Marvel movie it is, and whatever the part, it’ll be hard for them to keep this completely secret for too long, especially with a name like his in the mix. It’ll be interesting to see how much more is revealed before we finally see him on screen.
