Keanu Reeves Wants to Play Wolverine, BossLogic Imagines How He'd Look

Imagine if you will, an X-Men film featuring Keanu Reeves as Wolverine. Just think about it for a few moments- he's Canadian, looks pretty good with facial hair…uh…yeah that's all we got too.

In a recent interview with during the press tour for Replicas (which also stars Alice Eve), the question of superheroes came up, as it does.

ScreenGeek: 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.

Keanu Reeves: No it wasn't that I couldn't take it, it was cast.

ScreenGeek: Yeah, they had everyone they needed for those roles. Now those positions are opening up –

Alice Eve: We have John Wick though! What can he do; he can't be a cheater! You can't cheat on John!

Keanu Reeves: Of the two, I'd love to play Wolverine.


We can't really blame him for choosing Logan over Bruce, and thankfully BossLogic took the time to create a new art piece teasing what Reeves-as-Wolverine might look like:
