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.
