Keanu Reeves to Star in New Netflix Comic Book


Keanu Reeves‘ The best and most popular films have mostly taken place in the action genre, with the Hollywood star directing some true classics over the past few decades, including point break, speed, The Matrix and John Wickbut he doesn’t mind dipping his toes in other bodies of water every now and then.

In fact, Reeves has also acted in a number of science fiction projects, and he has has even explained why he is interested in the genrebut there is hardly any type of film in which he has not appeared. Admittedly, the comic book world is one he hasn’t visited too often in the cinema, but calls for him were getting louder and louder will eventually fit into the MCU or DCEUand while that may indeed happen soon, it seems like he’s first making his talents available to another cinematic universe based on a comic book – the BRZRKR Universe.

Yes, based on the series he co-wrote and co-created, Netflix plans to bring the actor’s work to life via a live-action film and an anime series, with Reeves starring and producing in both projects. Billed as a “brutal epic saga of an immortal warrior’s 80,000-year struggle through the ages,” the comic follows a man “known only as ‘B’ (Reeves) who is half-mortal, half-god, cursed and cursed.” Forced to force violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity. But after wandering the earth for centuries, B may finally have found sanctuary – he works for the US government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for everyone else. In return, B is granted what he desires – the truth about his endless, blood-soaked existence… and how to end it.”

Apparently the plan is for the movie to come first and the anime to follow after that to flesh things out further BRZRKR Universe. No further casting has been announced as of yet, but with Reeves so heavily involved, rest assured that more A-list talent will be entering the franchise. Especially when it’s housed on Netflix, where it’s guaranteed to reach a huge audience.

In fact, the streaming giant has been on the hunt for cinematic universes for a while now, and is slowly building a few of its own. That BRZRKR Universe will fit in well with their current collection and you can be sure that several spinoffs, sequels, prequels, etc. are already being hatched behind the scenes.
