Keanu Reeves: The actor, who is currently promoting The Matrix Resurrections, has commented that he would rather not see a crossover with his characters. Keanu Reeves, the famous actor of such well-known sagas as The Matrix or John Wick, has assured in a recent interview that he does not want to see the two most iconic characters of him, Neo and John Wick, participating in a crossover with the series of Mortal Kombat fighting video games. He has commented this way in full promotion of his next film, The Matrix Resurrections, after the question of the Esquire medium (via Screen Rant) about a possible franchise crossover.
Guest characters in Mortal Kombat
And as fans of NetherRealm Studios’ fighting games will know, the latest installments of Mortal Kombat have featured all kinds of guest characters from other sagas or franchises, each more surprising and unexpected. Something that is also common to the other great IP of the developer studio, Injustice. And it is that among the teams of fighters of the different installments of such a mythical fighting saga, names such as Terminator, Rambo, Robocop, Alien, Freddy Krueger or Spawn, among many others. But, would it be possible to see two such iconic characters as Neo from The Matrix or John Wick from his homonymous films?
Keanu Reeves hopes that no, they never use his characters for a new installment of Mortal Kombat. “If it were up to me, this collaboration would never happen. Mortal Kombat is amazing in many ways. But I think, you know, Neo … John Wick … they are something different, “says the actor, refusing to participate in something like that, at least as far as his person is concerned.
And we remember that both Neo and John Wick are characters owned by Warner Bros., which also owns the Mortal Kombat license, so if the company wanted, there would not be many problems to include them as hypothetical guest characters.
For now, we can enjoy the return of Neo on the big screen this coming December with the premiere of The Matrix Resurrections, while John Wick 4 will do the same in mid-2022.
