‘Avengers: Endgame’ Directors Say Keanu Reeves Playing Moon Knight is ‘A Good Call’

July 31, 2019
It’s no secret that Marvel has been looking for ways to bring fan-favorite actor Keanu Reeves into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, it has always been unclear as to what role the “John Wick” actor would play.
Recently, “Avengers: Endgame” co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo have suggested that the character of the Moon Knight would be a fitting role for Reeves to portray in the MCU.

While speaking to Kevin Smith for IMDB at the San Diego Comic-Con, the Russo brothers were asked regarding who Reeves should play in the MCU. Joe Russo appeared to be baffled by this question and proceeded to answer that “it’s limitless,” Screen Rant reported.
However, Smith throws out the idea that maybe the Canadian actor, who is also part Chinese-Hawaiian, could play the Moon Knight, a superhero whose real name is Marc Spector that becomes the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
After hearing the idea, the co-directors immediately went on board and called it “a good call.”
It is still unclear, though, who the 54-year-old actor will play in the MCU.
