The Marvel Studios head jokes that they have been talking to the 'Matrix' actor for almost every Marvel film, but still trying to 'figure out the right way to do it.'

AceShowbiz - There could be a Marvel film starring Keanu Reeves in the future. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirms that there have been conversations with the actor to join Marvel Cinematic Universe, though they haven't found the right project so far.

In a new interview with ComicBook.com, Feige addressed Reeves' potential involvement in the franchise. "We talk to him for almost every film we make," he said with a laugh, before adding, "We talk to Keanu Reeves about. 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."

The 46-year-old movie producer went on comparing the "Matrix" actor to Jake Gyllenhaal, saying that they talked to the "Nightcrawler" star "several times" before he finally signed up to play Mysterio in the upcoming "Spider-Man: Far From Home".

Latest rumors said that Reeves might star in "The Eternals", along with Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani and Richard Madden. However, none of the rumored cast members for the movie has been confirmed by the studio so far.

Reeves has been receiving a lot of buzz lately for his performance as the titular character in "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum". He recently made a cameo in "Always Be My Maybe" and has lent his voice to a new character named Duke Caboom in Disney's "Toy Story 4". He will also reprise his role as Ted "Theodore" Logan in "Bill & Ted Face the Music" set for a 2020 release.

There has been rumor that he will star in "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw", but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who leads the cast along with Jason Statham, has said that it's not going to happen. The wrestler-turned-actor, however, doesn't rule out the possibility of Reeves joining the "Fast" franchise, saying that there's a good chance things will set-up for him to enter the franchise down the line.

Reeves' potential involvement in the MCU aside, Marvel will continue cashing in on the success of "Avengers: Endgame" by re-releasing the movie along with new footage. The six minutes of new footage will include a tribute to Stan Lee.

"Not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie," Feige said. "If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there'll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises. Which will be next weekend."
