’ career has been on a “most excellent” upswing over the past few years. The actor, who spent most of his post-Matrix
days awkwardly showing up in romantic comedies or starring in widely panned genre movies (47 Ronin
anyone?), surprised everyone with the fantastic 2014 action flick John Wick
. Now, just five years and two sequels later, he’s become a Hollywood darling once again, with many calling for him to join the McU or Dceu.
In a recent Interview with BuzzFeed
, the actor was actually asked which Marvel
hero he’d want to bring to life and sure enough, he had an answer ready:
“When I was a kid, I always wanted to play Wolverine. So, Wolverine.”
Of course, the internet was totally into the idea of seeing Reeves as the iconic mutant and now, as expected, a petition has sprung up on Change.org calling for Marvel to cast him.
