Do you ever wonder what big Hollywood stars might have dreamt of when they were kids, before they knew they were going to become celebrities?

During a recent stop at Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hollywood legend Keanu Reeves dug into the mind of his childhood self to answer a question about what little Keanu might have had on his vision board back in the day.

While discussing the possibility of Reeves one day playing a Marvel character, Kimmel asked him what his 10-year-old self would have wanted to play.

And for Reeves there was no question.

Reeves told Kimmel:

"Ten-year-old Reeves? I think he would probably want to be Ghost Rider.”

Kimmel brought the topic up because the powers that be in the MCU are said to be dying to get Reeves signed on to one of their future films.

And though Reeves was a bit cagey about it, he definitely seems like he's part of the fandom.

He told Kimmel:

“It’s really cool, I think the way that the Marvel films have developed and what they are is really spectacular. It would be great to be a part of that.”

If the Ghost Rider thing were to ever happen, he'd be in good company.

Nicolas Cage played the character in two films back in 2007 and 2012. And The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus is rumored to be playing the role in an upcoming film.

On Twitter, Reeves' hint he's keen to join the MCU was met with enthusiasm.











He may not have ever joined the MCU specifically, but Reeves is no stranger to the super hero and comic book genre. He played the titular role in the 2005 DC Comics film Constantine, which has become a cult favorite over the years.
