Nearly 30 years have passed since Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. Yet the titular duo is back in Bill and Ted Face the Music. Apparently, it’s never too late for Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves to slip back into the roles that first made them famous back in 1989. But in a recent interview, Reeves admits he’s missed his chance to play his favorite Marvel superhero.

Keanu Reeves has played several iconic heroes on the big screen

Since his breakout role as Ted “Theodore” Logan in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Reeves has played a ton of action heroes. Point Break, Speed, and The Matrix made him one of the most bankable leading men of the 1990s. Then, Reeves enjoyed a career resurgence with the unexpected success of 2014’s John Wick and its sequels.

At 55 years old, Reeves finds himself back in his action star heyday. Two more John Wick sequels are in the works. And he’s returning as Neo in 2022’s The Matrix 4. But with one actor after another finding their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, could Reeves find himself joining the MCU sometime soon?

The ‘John Wick’ star always wanted to play this Marvel superhero

On a recent appearance on the SiriusXM show Radio Andy, Reeves was asked whether he had any roles he would have loved to play in the past. And it didn’t take long for the Bill and Ted Face the Music star to admit he’d love to time-travel back to take on a certain Marvel mutant.

“I always wanted to play Wolverine. … Frank Miller’s Wolverine? For sure,” Reeves said, clarifying which version of the Marvel Comics character he would prefer. Frank Miller notably collaborated with Chris Claremont to give Wolverine his very first spinoff comic in the 1980s.

Reeves’ Bill and Ted co-star Alex Winter jumped in, explaining that it’s “not too late” for Reeves to take on Wolverine. But Reeves seems to have made peace with the fact that he never got the chance to fulfill his Marvel superhero dream. Instead, Hugh Jackman delivered an iconic turn.

Is it really too late for Reeves to play Wolverine in a Marvel movie?

Reeves claims he’s “good with [not playing Wolverine] now.” But is all hope really lost for him to play Wolverine? After all, the MCU is currently without one and will almost certainly need to introduce him at some point. And rumors continue to swirl that Marvel Studios is actively pursuing Reeves. Still, perhaps Reeves isn’t interested in another long-term franchise commitment.

Even so, the actor would be perfect as a Wolverine from another timeline, a future version of the character, or even the lead in a standalone spinoff. With John Wick putting him back on top, Reeves is almost an inevitable addition to a current superhero franchise. But will Marvel finally find him the right role, or will DC persuade him to return as John Constantine?

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
