Keanu Reeves has been in talks to join the highly lucrative Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, 46, while promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home in London confirmed that Reeves, 54, was on their radar.

'We talk to him for almost every film we make,' Feige laughed while talking to Comicbook.com for an article Wednesday.

'We talk to Keanu Reeves about. I don't know when, if, or ever he'll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it,' Feige added.

The studio boss compared Reeves to actor Jake Gyllenhaal, 38, who joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home. 

Feige said they talked 'multiple times' with Gyllenhaal before finding the right role for him as Mysterio.

Marvel Studios was hopeful that Reeves would be cast in an upcoming project when the right role emerges.
