Keanu Reeves Responds to "Doctor Strange" Rumors

Keanu Reeves Responds to "Doctor Strange" RumorsSubmit Comment
Marvel was in talks with Joaquin Phoenix to play the title role in its "Doctor Strange" film, but the actor eventually dropped out due to a concern of signing a long-term contract. It seems that this concern is something on every actor's mind, including Keanu Reeves, who has been rumored as Phoenix's replacement.

In a new interview, Reeves spoke about the rumor. "From a practical standpoint the idea of a long-time contract is sort of 'errr,' because you want to make sure the material is up to a certain level. Like the good or great level," he explained. "I like the idea. I go to those kinds of movies. I grew up on them and comics and graphic novels. [But] I didn't know Doctor Strange as a character, I didn't read that as a kid. Iím gonna have to read it."

"Doctor Strange" will be directed by Scott Derrickson, who worked with Reeves on "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

Well, that was...mindblowingly ineffectual. To what rumor did he respond? Seems he was bloviating about the movie in general and not to any particular rumor...but hey, making up news and article titles is fun, right?

You would think B List actors would be excited about a long term contract with a major movie studio on a hot streak

Its called job security,ya honkies

Reeves tends to bend characters to his own likeness rather than bending his likeness to the character. So yeah, I don't think he'll fit for the role.

Keep making flops Reeves.

He starred in Constatine. That didn't do well. Now he's going to be Doc Strange ?

I predict deja vu.

With a 100 million dollar budget
Constantine earned nearly $30 million at the North American box office on its opening weekend, making it the second highest earning movie for that weekend.
It eventually earned $75,976,178 at the North American box office and a total of $230,884,728 around the world.

Constantine is one of my FAVORITE comic book movies EVER

You know why? 'cause I didn't know it was a comic book movie.

The source material it's quite different yeah... But hell, it was a fun, scary (sorta) and Stormare as the devil was AWESOOOOOME.

Oh and LaBeouff dies in a horrible and swift way, Sooo... that's ok too.

Keanu Reeves could be a decent Dr. Strange and with him stuck in b-movies as of late then I think it would behoove him to sign a long-term contract with Marvel for 6 films.

"Omg! I can't f*cking wait to see JOHN WICK!" - Said by no one ever.

@Deaft0ne
Interestingly enough John Wick has gotten great reviews. It's only out of 10 but that's still good given the percentage.

Yup, again with all these wannabe directors/actors who bitch and moan but will still watch the movie (paying for it or not). Shut up. You're gonna watch it one way or another. Little crying bitches/minks.....
