It seems John Wick star and beloved actor Keanu Reeves is interested in reprising a certain role.
No, it’s not Neo, nor is he interested in making Speed 3 either. And we already know he’s soon to return as Theodore Logan in Bill & Ted Face the Music.
He did mention he’d enjoy being in a Western on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Perhaps that serves as a clue?
Actually, Reeves seems the most interested in returning to the world of DC Comics as the warlock antihero John Constantine.
Reprising his DC Role
Though the 2005 film adaptation wasn’t exactly well received, Reeves said he’d “love” to return to the world of Constantine.
“I’ve always wanted to play John Constantine again,” he told Variety in a podcast interview. “I just love that world, too, and I love that character. I just had a blast playing a character and [playing] in that world.”
Though fans of the 2014-2015 TV series may object, it certainly wouldn’t be the worst idea.
DC Comics in Need of Quality Cinematic Content
DC and Warner Bros. have been struggling to produce films capable of rivaling those of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Considering these circumstances, and the success of the John Wick franchise, surely, they might want to consider the proposal.
With Keanu’s resurgence as a seriously hot name in Hollywood, why shouldn’t they give him another crack at the character?
As clearly evidenced by John Wick 3’s massive opening, a Constantine sequel with Reeve’s name attached could be absolutely huge.
Of course, it’s currently unclear how truly feasible this might be, so don’t go holding your breath.
