Keanu Reeves is one of the most loved and sought-after stars in Hollywood. With the success of your own franchise, John Wick, as well as the next premiere of the fourth installment of MatrixKeanu doesn’t really need to explore other movie sagas to stay on top.
However, fans long for him to soon be part of one of the superhero cinematic universes that have captivated us for years.
In June 2019, Kevin Feige, Marvel’s chief creative officer, revealed who have talked with Keanu frequently – and by frequently we mean almost every movie the studio has produced – to weigh what will be the right project for the actor to join the MCU.
For a long time, no offer had been attractive enough for Keanu … until now. The actor finally decided to say “Yes” to superhero movies but to the surprise of many he will not make his debut in the MCU, but in the universe inspired by DC comics, the other giant of superhero adaptations of cinema.
Keanu Reeves is really no stranger to the content of DC Comics on the big screen, since in 2005 he starred in the film of Constantine, which is based on the comic Hellblazer. However, his new bet points to a film where the characteristic superhero capes are an important part of the characters’ costumes.
On May 20, 2022 we will have the opportunity to see, or rather hear, Keanu in a superhero movie with DC League of Super-Pets, an animated production based on the comic of the same name (Legion of Super-Pets, in Spanish), where we will have the opportunity to learn about the adventures of Krypto, who is known mainly for being Superman’s dog, and other pets with superpowers.
Krypto, the star of the film, will not be played by Keanu Reeves, but by another great star of the blockbusters, Dwayne Johnson, who just shared the first teaser of the film where the participation of Reeves was revealed.
At the moment, it is unknown which character Keanu will lend his voice to, among the super pet options are Streaky the Supercat, Comet the Super-Horse (both of Supergirl’s pets) or Beppo the Super-Monkey (a monkey originating from the same planet Superman, Krypton).
However, what we do know is that Keanu will share credits with Kevin Hart, who will play Ace the Bat-Hound, Batman and Robin’s furry companion, and other actors who, like Keanu, have yet to reveal their character as Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer and the Mexican Diego Luna.
DC League of Super-Pets Perhaps it is not the superhero production in which many expected to finally see Keanu Reeves, since it is not a live-action.
However, we know that the actor has a very good experience giving voice to animated characters as happened with Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4 and Johnny Silverhand in the video game Cyberpunk 2077, so there is a lot of excitement to know who he will play in this animated DC movie.
