In a meeting with Esquire, he was given some information about his possible signing in the UCM. "Isn't it bigger than the universe? It's practically similar to a multiverse", mentioned the protagonist of "John Wick".
"It would be an honor. There are some truly amazing and visionary directors, and they are accomplishing something that no one has ever done. It is extraordinary in that sense, in terms of scale, aspiration and production. It would be extraordinary to be a part of it," he added.

The interest comes from both parties, since Kevin Feige recently admitted that he has maintained contact with the actor to incorporate him into his production house:
"We contact him for almost every movie we make." "I have no idea when, or on the other hand, he will join the UCM at some point, however, we have to find the correct method to do so," Feige concluded.
In addition, Feige made a comparison of Keanu Reeves with Jake Gyllenhaal, showing that they chatted with the star at some events until the ideal job for him appeared: Mysterio.
