Keanu Reeves is having a rather stellar 2019, what with the releases of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Toy Story 4 and all those Internet memes to boot.

So where does he go next? Well, it sounds like he could join that other rather popular cultural property of the moment – the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In fact, MCU boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that they have had talks with the actor to join the franchise in some capacity.

"We talk to him for almost every film we make," the producer told ComicBook.com. "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."

Feige compared Reeves to Jake Gyllenhaal, revealing that they talked to the Spider-Man: Far From Home "multiple times" over the years until the right role came up with Mysterio.

So you might want to keep your eyes peeled on the Reeves front.
