Keanu Reeves Turned Down A Position In The MCU To Make ‘John Wick 3’
Keanu Reeves has been round for lengthy sufficient that you simply’d assume Marvel would have sucked them into their orbit sooner or later. Alas, the celebrities have by no means aligned.

And he would have gotten away with it have been it not for that meddling John Wick.
The position was Yon-Rogg, alien mentor to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers. The half finally went to Jude Regulation, however solely as a result of Reeves was already scheduled to threepeat the position that’s come to outline 2010’s Keanu: that of the world class murderer who comes out of retirement after some thugs kill his canine.
