Iron Man has spawned a slew of legendary actors and actresses, including Benecio Del Toro, Jeff Bridges, Jeff Goldblum, Glenn Close, and Jude Law, but Keanu Reeves remains on the periphery.
He was asked if he would be interested in participating in a future episode of the Esquire video series ‘Explain This.’
He let out an audible gasp
I believe that there are some truly exceptional directors and visionaries at work in the MCU, and they’re accomplishing something that no one else has. Working on a project of this magnitude would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Lana Wachowski, director of this year’s fourth Matrix film Resurrections, previously explained how she came up with the concept of resurrecting Neo (Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss).
“My brain has always reached into my imagination,” while she was grieving for her parents, she explained. “And one night, I was crying and couldn’t sleep, and suddenly my brain exploded this whole story.”
My mother and father had vanished, but I found myself suddenly in the company of Neo and Trinity, two of the most significant people in my life. It was comforting to have these characters reintroduced into my life.
This, I believe, is the function of art and storytelling. Nothing is more significant to us than their physical presence in our lives. I was completely objective when it came to myself. However, having them back in my life was extremely reassuring.”

Neo’s return to the role after such a long absence was the most surreal moment for the actor. “I’ve never had the opportunity to reprise a role 15, 16, or 17 years later, and that is the subject of the film. Thus, the concept of a past, memory, fiction, reality, and truth are all entwined….”
Even though there is little information available, it indicates that time and memory will play a significant role in the story. We’re even more excited about the film’s plot now that the Resurrections trailer shows Neo and Trinity not recognizing one another.
When it comes to the infamous red or blue pill, John Wick’s real-life counterpart is less assured than his fictional counterpart.
