“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.”
Reeves has made headlines this year for everything from his starring action part in John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum to his role as a motorcycle daredevil toy in Toy Story 4 to his upcoming role in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game to a meme-worthy appearance in Netflix movie Always Be My Maybe.
There’s also an online petition, with more than 34,000 signatures at press time, urging Time Magazine to make Reeves its person of the year.
