    I swear I've seen this story before. So probably less a revelation than a reiteration.
    IIRC they've offered him parts (plural!) before but he seems to be holding out for something major (or just finds more interesting.) There may have even been a hint somewhere that they wanted him for Adam Warlock (take that with a huge grain of salt!)

    I seem to recall that he was up for the role of Doctor Strange.

    Meh. Am I the only person who's completely unenthused by Keanu Reeves? Granted I haven't watched any of the John Wick films (I have no interest in them) but have they really rehabilitated his image to the point that everyone wants him now (producers and viewers alike)?

    I meant his style of acting, or lack thereof, as illustrated with Neo in particular.

    On a different note, Kevin Feige hints that the Black Widow prequel might reveal the future of the MCU in phase 4 and compares it to Better Call Saul, aka the best prequel ever (my opinion, not his):

    “There’s a method to the madness,” Feige told io9 while promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home. “There’s always a method and doing things in an unexpected way is something we find fun. There are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn’t necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before.”

    It seems Feige is suggesting if a Black Widow prequel is coming (which it totally is, come on now), it would be the latter: a film that teaches audiences things they didn’t know before. Maybe she interacted with the Skrulls like Captain Marvel and Nick Fury? Maybe she unlocked a whole other plot that she never got to finish?

    “I look at Better Call Saul as a wonderful example of a prequel that almost completely stands on its own apart from Breaking Bad because it informs you about so many things you didn’t know about before,” Feige continues. “So time will tell which way we’ve gone with a supposed Black Widow movie.” Feige lightly chuckled after that last phrase.​

    My secret fanboy hope is that the Black Widow movie is the middle movie in a backdoor Nick Fury and Coulson trilogy.

    Reeves was offered the role of Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel, he turned it down for John Wick 3.

    Reeves as Reed Richards....just no. To date, the other three film versions of the character turned him into something completely stripped of what made him compelling (in the 60s, anyway), to the point where he's just "some guy that's the leader" and nothing more. It will take a strong, seasoned actor to pull that off.

    I don't see that at all. Reeves isn't the kind of actor who projects an air of superintelligence.

    I do not like that "supposed Black Widow movie" phrasing.

    Set photos have already leaked of them filming it.

    Feige probably just phrased it like that because it hasn't been officially announced yet.

    And it'll undoubtedly be officially announced at Comic Con (along with other films).
