John Wick star Keanu Reeves has expressed interest in playing Ghost Rider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

On Wednesday night, Keanu Reeves dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new graphic novel series BRZRKR. While there, Reeves was asked which Marvel character he would like to play if given the opportunity. The John Wick star revealed that he has his sights set on Ghost Rider.

“10-year-old Reeves would want to — I think he’d probably want to be Ghost Rider,” Reeves admitted.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige has made it no secret that he has met Keanu Reeves about several roles in the world of the Avengers. The two have yet to find the right one but that didn’t stop Reeves from praising the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I think the way that the Marvel films have developed and what they are is really spectacular and it would be great to be a part of that,” Reeves added.

Keanu Reeves has some competition for the role

However, Keanu Reeves isn’t the only Hollywood A-lister who wants to play Ghost Rider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Earlier this year, Ryan Gosling made it clear that he’s also interested in the role. A few weeks after his comments, Kevin Feige seemed eager to find a place for the actor in the MCU.

The Johnny Blaze version of Ghost Rider has been featured in two movies starring Nicolas Cage, but both of them were met with bad reviews from critics and audiences. Meanwhile, Ghost Rider has also made an appearance on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC, with Gabriel Luna playing the Robbie Reyes incarnation of the iconic comic book character.
