Keanu Reeves Wants to Take Over Wolverine From Hugh Jackman

It looks like Keanu Reeves would gladly take over where Hugh Jackman left off!

While doing an interview with Screen Geek, Keanu was asked about wanting to do a superhero film.

“A few years ago you were asked you if you’d do a comic book film. You said you wanted to do Wolverine but you couldn’t take it. You wanted to do Batman, but you couldn’t take it,” the interviewer said. “Now those positions are opening up…”

Keanu responded, “Of the two, I’d love to play Wolverine.”

Hugh has spoken extensively about leaving Wolverine behind after portraying the character for years.

    While I think Keanu may be a good Wolverine, it’s waaayyyyy too early to give the character a new face. Hugh Jackman has made a lasting impression and it would be disrespectful to switch actors so quickly.

    I agree. And the work Jackman did with Wolverine, in terms of iconicity, is the same that Harrison Ford did with Indiana Jones and Han Solo, no one can accept other actors except him playing those two characters.
