If you haven’t heard about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you probably live under a rock.

The Marvel Universe has hundreds of cast members, from Robert Downey Jr playing Iron-Man to Vin Diesel playing a tree. If you thought that Marvel couldn’t reel any other A-List Actor, you’re wrong. The head of Marvel Studios says there’s still one star they’re dying to reel in: Keanu Reeves! “We talk to him for almost every film we make,” studio president Kevin Feige told on Wednesday. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about [every project]. 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 went on to compare Reeves to Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal, who the studio talked to “multiple times” until the role of Mysterio finally seemed like the perfect fit. “They’re hoping a similar situation will occur with Revees,” the website notes, “and that he will join the wide world of Marvel when the right role presents itself.”

Meanwhile, Complex notes that Reeves was recently rumored to have turned down a role in Captain Marvel.
