Keanu Reeves delights fans with “the character you want to play again”!



Keanu Reeves reveals his thoughts on John Constantine, who played in 2005.



“Constantine”, one of the most popular works by Keanu Reeves


Keanu Reeves, who has played various characters in works of various genres such as the movies “The Matrix”, “John Wick”, and “Il Mare”, seems to have a character who wants to play again.


In an interview with Esquire in the US, Keanu said this.


“I love playing Constantine. John Constantine. I’ve played a lot of John (a character named). How many John have I played so far? I don’t know. I think there are more than 10 people. Anyway, I’d be happy if I had the opportunity to play Constantine again. “


Constantine, the character of DC Comics


“Constantine” released in 2005 is a work in which Keanu played the hero of DC Comics, John Constantine. In addition to Keanu, Tilda Swinton and Rachel Weisz have also appeared, and they are still very popular.


John Constantine was then played by Matt Ryan in the Arrowverse, where DC Comics characters share the same worldview, mainly in drama works. In addition, a drama of the dark hero team “Justice League Dark” centered on Constantine and a drama depicting young Constantine are being produced, and at the moment Keanu and the 2005 version of the production team are making a sequel to Constantine. It’s difficult to make.


However, the fact that Keanu himself wants to play Keanu’s Constantine, which is enthusiastically popular with fans, tickles the fans’ hearts that he may be seen again someday.

In particular, Keanu played Neo / Thomas Anderson in the Matrix series for the first time in 20 years in 2021, and Ted in the Bill and Ted series for the first time in 30 years in 2020. It’s been 16 years since Constantine was released, but I feel that there is still a lot of potential.


By the way, Keanu who has played “John” in “John Wick” series, “Heart Blue”, “Secret Party”, etc., but in “Speed”, “Babys in Toyland”, “Feeling Minnesota” He plays a character named “Jack”, and not only John but also Jack plays several times.


In an interview with Esquire, Keanu expressed his positive feelings about joining the MCU, which has been expected for many years, but it may be faster to join Arrowverse and DCEU.
