This is how they describe the character that Marvel is looking for and that fits perfectly with Keanu Reeves:
Marc Spector was a former boxer, mercenary and CIA agent. He is betrayed by his boss, Raoul Bushman, after they find a mysterious archaeological site, which Bushman planned to loot by his own selfish means. Near death, Spector comes into contact with Khonshu, an Egyptian moon god, who offers him another chance to live, in exchange for becoming his avatar in this world. Spector accepts the deal and is reborn with superhuman powers. He then returns to the US and accumulates immense wealth after investing his earnings as a mercenary and becomes the crime fighter known as Moon Knight. "

"Spector also created multiple identities, including the alias of millionaire Steven Grant to divert people from his mercenary history and Jake Lockley, a discreet taxi driver who helps him be more aware of the streets and criminal elements."
"We are looking for an actor between 40 and 50 years old charismatic with a brooding air and who is capable of using martial arts and firearms." All roads lead to Keanu Reeves.
The film studio has had meetings with the actor for some time.
There has been a lot of speculation with what kind of character he could play Keanu reeves in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it seems that the best fit is Moon Knight. For those who think that the actor is not used to the rhythm of television, it must be remembered that Marvel shoots his series as if they were long films of 6, 8 or 10 hours. They have done so with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier or Loki. Therefore Keanu Reeves would not find much difference with shooting John Wick or The Matrix. Precisely his next two premieres.
We must also remember that both series and movies will be connected, therefore, we could get to see Keanu reeves in the cinema playing the Moon Knight if in the end the deal is closed.
