Playing the role of Batman is a dream for many Hollywood actors and Keanu Reeves is one of them. At the premiere of DC’s League of Super-Pets, Keanu Reeves told Extra that playing The Dark Knight in a live-action Batman project was always his dream.
While speaking to Extra’s Rachel Lindsay, Keanu Reeves was asked about whether he’d be open to playing a live-action Batman, rather than doing the voice for Batman as he does in DC League of Super-Pets.
I love Batman as a character and I love him in the comic books, in the films, so to get the opportunity to voice — to play — Batman was awesome. … It’s always been a dream, but [Robert] Pattinson’s got Batman right now and he’s doing awesome. Maybe down the road, maybe when they need an older Batman…
Reeves also spoke about his experience as Batman’s voice on the DC League of Super-Pets, saying that it was awesome to work with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart for the project.
I have a small part in this film, a bit of a cameo, But even at that — just to be part of a project that Johnson and Kevin Hart are part of is awesome, and I got to play Batman.
