Just Throwin' It Out
Just throwing this out there, Keanu Reeves should be Ghost Rider in the MCU.— Samuel David (@SamuelDPhoto) March 26, 2020
A little context here, President at Marvel Studios said publicly that they talk to Keanu Reeves about EVERY Marvel movie to see if he’s interested. Ghost Rider is a name that has been set to appear in the coming slate of movies, it seems inevitable at this point.— Chris Salts (@ChrisSalts) March 26, 2020
