It seems the comic writer behind such titles like Venom and Guardians of the Galaxy thinks that fans should want Keanu Reeves in Marvel Studios’ next film Shang-Chi.
The writer in question was Donny Cates who is behind such Marvel titles as the ongoing Venom series, Guardians of the Galaxy and many more. In a recently deleted Tweet, he stated that fans would want him in the upcoming Marvel Studio’ film after spending four hours in a room with the breaking story. He did not, however, go into any details as to why.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
