    Over the years, Marvel has populated its sprawling cinematic universe with an extraordinarily talented cast of actors and actresses, but the studio has still never quite been able to grab Keanu Reeves for a role. And that's not for lack of trying, either. So just why hasn't Reeves shown up in the MCU so far? 

    Everyone knows Marvel likes to lock lead actors into hefty multi-picture deals, such as Chadwick Boseman's reported five-film contract and Sebastian Stan's whopping nine-movie deal. And while signing a Marvel movie contract comes with many, many perks, there's no denying that agreeing to film half a dozen movies over the course of a few years definitely cuts down on the number of other projects an actor can take on. 

    Other actors like John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have previously discussed the projects they wouldn't have been able to make if they'd taken a role in the MCU, and it's possible that Reeves has had this on his mind whenever Marvel approaches him about a role. In this case, it's likely that Reeves' reluctance to join the MCU is less about what Marvel is offering him, and more about the roles and opportunities he could be forced to give up. Keep watching to find out why we haven’t seen Keanu Reeves in the MCU yet.

    Who should Keanu play in the MCU?

      He loves motorcycles so much that he built his own motorcycle company. Best bet is Ghost Rider. Let him ride and he'll have so much fun he will sign up for multiple films.

                  M.C.U. Is a dying universe. I hope he never joins the S.J.W shit show. He has to much class unlike the total ass hats in Hollywood.

                      DC has characters that suits Keanu way more.
                      John Constantine or Victor Zsasz..

                          Can you imagine fi Reeves actually becomes the new wolverine? He does have a slight similarity to Jackman.

                              If they're going to have Keanu Reeves in the MCU, it's gotta be a big character, not just a throwaway villain from Captain Marvel

                                because mcu isn't worthy of Keanu

                                  Let's face it, it doesn't matter what Marvel wants in regard to promotion and contract availability and such, an actor on the level of Keanu could set his own terms and Marvel would still likely jump at the chance to get him. As for what character should he be? Moon Knight. It's a perfect fit.

                                    I think he'd suit better for DCU with his dark persona...MCU lean more towards humor and bright color videography.

                                                If Keanu was going to act in an mcu film, it makes sense he would be the beyonder. The beyonder is an omnipotent being, he can bend reality to whatever he sees fit. Keanu would be perfect for the role, so he can show up in secret wars as the beyonder and you with the avengers and other heroes.

It's nothing personal, but I'm just not sure what he would add to the MCU. When I think of Reeves, I think of Speed, The Matrix, John Wick, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Constantine, etc., but I don't think of a Marvel superhero or villain. Like I said, nothing personal, I'm just not sure if it's a good fit.
