Actor Keanu Reeves is currently busy in the promotions of his upcoming sci-fi thriller movie Replicas which is set to release next month. While the actor has played the role of bad-ass heroes on the big screen a lot of times, he is yet to make a debut in the superhero genre. if ever offered to play one, it looks like Reeves would be more open to playing Wolverine than any other characters.
During a recent interview with ScreenGeek, while promoting Replicas, the interviewer touched on the topic of potential comic book film roles for Reeves. He went on to ask Reeves who would he like to play Batman or Wolverine. The John Wick actor replied saying he would love to play Wolverine.
“Of the two, I’d love to play Wolverine,” Reeves said.
Notably, Ben Affleck and Hugh Jackman, the two actors playing the roles of Batman and Wolverine on screen, are reported to have moved on from their fan-favorite roles. In fact, Jackman, who played the mutant slasher for more than a decade, has already confirmed that he is not considering reprising his role anytime soon.
Actor Tom Hardy, who splashed the screens as Eddie Brock/Venom, has also expressed his desire to play Wolverine on screen. However, it remains to be seen if the Disney/FOX deal will move forward with a new X-Men franchise with possibly a younger actor onboard to carry the role forward for several projects.
In related news, Entertainment Weekly has released the first official look at Keanu Reeves’ upcoming John Wick 3 film. The first of the John Wick 3 pictures features Keanu Reeves in the rain, while the second one shows him and his co-star Halle Berry, who plays Sophia in the sequel, along with two Belgian Malinois dogs.
