At first glance, casting Keanu Reeves as a blustering Canadian motorcycle stuntman toy in Toy Story 4 would seem like a piece of stunt casting — an easy character gag that wouldn’t require Reeves (himself a Canadian motorcycle enthusiast with a taste for danger) to stretch his acting chops too much. And that’s how Duke Caboom was envisioned by the creative team behind Toy Story 4: a one-gimmick side character.
But when producers Mark Nielsen and Jonas Rivera, and director Josh Cooley sat down with Reeves to discuss working in Toy Story 4, Reeves’ enthusiasm and passion for a little stuntman toy helped turn Duke Caboom from a side gag into a fully-formed character. /Film sat down with Nielsen, Rivera, and Cooley (the full interview will run soon) to find out how Reeves took part in the creative process for Duke Caboom.

I just want what’s best for Keanu Reeves, and so does Kevin Feige. The Marvel Studios president was recently asked if Reeves would ever pop up somewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and according to Feige, there’s nothing he’d like more. But he has to find the “right way to do it” first.
In addition to the possibility of Keanu Reeves in the MCU, Feige also commented on the prospects of a Venom/Spider-Man crossover movie sometime in the future. That probably won’t involve Keanu Reeves, though – so do you really care?

After long years of rumors and failed talks, the Bill and Ted 3 production begins. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are bringing back the band in Bill & Ted Face the Music, which kicked off production with a gratitude and nostalgia-filled post from Winter, who praised writer Ed Solomon, the writer of the original Bill & Ted movies, for being the rock that holds the bodacious family together.
And speaking of family, Solomon also teased a few comparison shots of young Reeves and Winter with their daughters played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, who show an uncanny resemblance to the excellent duo.

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: Keanu Reeves never needed a comeback and the underrated Street Kings proves it.)
Keanu Reeves has been in the public consciousness since the mid-80s, and while he’s had his ups and downs success-wise, he’s currently enjoying the biggest popularity wave of his career. That’s no small thing as he’s been in a whopping 64 movies since his debut in 1986’s Youngblood with a filmography that includes critical darlings (River’s Edge, 1986; My Own Private Idaho, 1991) and box-office hits (Speed, 1994; The Matrix, 1999). As an example of how quickly his tides can turn, Reeves made three movies in 2018, but while you might have caught Destination Wedding – and you’re a fool who hates love if you haven’t – you probably haven’t even heard of Siberia or Replicas. Just one year later, though, and Reeves is a global sensation again thanks to John Wick: Chapter 3, Always Be My Maybe, and the upcoming Toy Story 4.
This past weekend even saw him take the stage at E3 to help announce his role in a new video game called Cyberpunk 2077.
So, yeah, I’m thinking Keanu Reeves is back, and with this newly invigorated interest in all things Keanu, I’m hoping people take the time to dig into his extensive and varied filmography to seek out some gems they may have missed along the way. Man of Tai Chi (2013) is a fun flick with terrific fight action, The Replacements (2000) is a sweetly satisfying underdog sports tale, and The Night Before (1988) sees him sell Lori Loughlin to a pimp. How are you not already heading to the video store?!
If I could only pick one of his past films for people to rediscover, though, it would be David Ayer’s Street Kings (2008). Yes, the same Street Kings currently sitting at 36% on Rotten Tomatoes alongside an underwhelming 58% audience score.
