Keanu Reeves Have Always Wanted the Wolverine Role
The role of Wolverine went to Hugh Jackman, and he starred in the film four times over. But secretly, Keanu Reeves wants to do the role. He said that he loved the steel claws Wolverine has and his spunky, hot-headed character.
Before the first ever X-men movie was released, there were rumors that Keanu would do Cyclops. But then, when the focus on the film shifted from the X-men leader Cyclops to Wolverine, Keanu has to back out.
Unfortunately, he wasn't offered the Wolverine role. It was given to Hugh Jackman and the rest was history. Up to this day, Keanu still wants the role and he'd take it whenever available. Keanu would have to do with his animation-inspired roles like Cowboy Bepop for the time being.
