Can Keanu Reeves become MCU’s new Wolverine?

Published

on

A new fan art portrays Keanu Reeves as one of the most-loved characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the wolverine. We last saw Reeves as Duke Camboom, the action figure in Toy Story 4. He also did a cameo recently in the romantic comedy, ‘Always Be My Maybe’, where he played the amplified version of the actor Keanu Reeves. We also saw him in John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum, the third film in the action thriller series and a globally hit franchise. That film made a worldwide box office collection of 326 million dollars, against the 75 million budget of the film, becoming the highest-grossing sequel of the franchise. It also turned out to be the highest selling home release by Lionsgate in the last half-decade.

Hugh Jackman last played MCU’s Wolverine for the final time in 2017 in ‘Logan’, directed by James Mangold. Jackman debuted as live-action Wolverine in the film X-Men in the year 2000. He then played the same fan-favorite character in eight succeeding films, X-2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, and X-Men: First Class, a prequel in which Wolverine did a surprise cameo. After Logan gave closure to Jackman’s Wolverine, many fans have shared their fantasies of seeing others in the role of Wolverine. This fan-casted list of Wolverine includes many names besides Reeves, like Richard Madden, Oscar Isaac, and Jon Bernthal.

The credits for this impeccable fan-art goes to artist Pablo Ruiz, who posted the picture his Instagram page alongside the caption: “Who is YOUR favorite X Men? Keanu Reeves as Wolverine. I have long wanted to see Keanu Reeves as Wolverine, so I decided to do it. Many would not like the idea of ​​someone replacing Hugh Jackman but we will have to get used to it if we want to see Wolverine on the big screen again if he does not reprise the character.” The fan-art instantly went viral on various social media platforms.

Nevertheless, it is difficult to entertain a possibility where someone else carries off Wolverine with all its complexities, emotions and his troubled past, as good as Hugh Jackman. But as Ruiz rightly made the point clear that if we want to see Wolverine again then we need to start maneuvering for alternatives if Jackman is done with Wolverine forever. In such a scenario Keanu Reeves does have many perks that can have him cast as MCU’s next Wolverine.
