It might not be so farfetched. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com on Wednesday he’s been trying to find the right part for the John Wick actor, 54. “We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige said, laughing. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about. 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.” This isn’t the first time Reeves has been linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Keanu director Peter Atencio revealed that the filmmakers had contacted Reeves ' management about Reeves appearing in the film, who declined on his behalf. In 2010, an image of Reeves became an internet meme after photos of him, seemingly depressed while sitting on a park bench eating alone

That ’ s not entirely accurate

Keanu Reeves might have been named the internet’s newest boyfriend, but the Toy Story 4 actor missed the memo.

“I’ve been what?” he said when asked how he felt about the web’s obsession with him.

“That’s, uh, that’s wacky,” the actor said. “Well, the positivity’s great.”

Reeves continued to praise the recent projects that fans have latched onto, like John Wick 3 and the Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe, in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself.

Watch Keanu Reeves Squirm As He's Complimented

Watch Keanu Reeves Squirm As He's Complimented Keanu Reeves just reacted to a compliment in the most Keanu Reeves way. In an interview with Geek Bomb, the “John Wick 3” star was told he’s been described as the “nicest guy in the world,” and a bashful Reeves didn’t exactly soak up the compliment. “Oh, that’s ridiculous,” the actor shot back, avoiding eye contact with the interviewer while squirming in his seat. “Anyway, it’s nice to hear but it’s not true. It’s nice to hear.” Reeves did,

We like Keanu , but what about the people who have worked with him ? It seems we all agree that he is a unique person. I hope you enjoy watching this little

Keanu Reeves is a talented actor and has starred in the movies Bill and Ted' s Excellent Adventure, Bill and Ted' s Bogus Journey, Speed and The Matrix and its sequels. The wacky time-travel movie became something of a cultural phenomenon, and audiences would forever confuse Reeves ' s real-life

“The character’s so full of life,” he added. “He’s a showman, he’s a daredevil. So when he’s on the bike, I was just — like, he keeps doing poses, you know, and he can’t stop. They put it into the film, so it was nice.”

While Reeves said his on-screen, toy persona “looks absolutely not like me, at all,” he did say that some of his physicality made it into the character.

“They took some of the physicality that I was talking about for the character, and doing the poses,” he added. “I think it’s really remarkable how Pixar and the directors kind of do the physical comedy, the emotion, and so for me I was rally happy with what they did with Duke Caboom.”

But Reeves’ character isn’t all silly poses and daredevil antics. Without giving away spoilers, Reeves said that there’s something that happens in the movie to give Duke some “regret.”

“I can’t do all of the things that the commercial says, so he’s disappointed. And so I kind of let my kid down, and so I’m carrying that regret,” he said. “Part of the journey for my character is that I get to, I don’t know, be heroic, maybe.”

Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21.
