He’s the hero we all deserve, but not the one we need right now.

One day, he would like to play the Caped Crusader in a live-action movie.

The actor walked the red carpet for his new movie, DC’s League of Super-Pets. The story of DC’s greatest superhero’s pets is told in the film, with Kevin Hart playing Batman’s dog, Ace.




It is the first time an actor has ever played Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight.

As he walked the red carpet for the movie’s premiere on Saturday, he spoke with several reporters about his love of Batman and whether or not he would play the superhero in a live-action movie.

Speaking to Extra, he said: “I love Batman as a character – and I love him in the comic books and in the films. So to get the opportunity to voice– to play Batman, was awesome.”

He was asked if he would ever consider playing Batman in a live-action role. “It’s been a dream, but [Robert] Pattinson’s got Batman right now – he’s doing awesome. So, maybe down the road – maybe when they need an older Batman.”

In a separate interview with PEOPLE, he said that he never came close to playing Batman, despite his love for the superhero.

“I really love Batman, as a kid – comic books – I was reading Batman, Dark Knight,” Reeves told AP.  “There’s been so many incarnations of the character and it’s a character I’ve always wanted to play.

And after expressing his desire to perhaps one day play an older version of Bruce Wayne on the big screen, it wasn’t long before Twitter users voiced their support for the idea.

“I absolutely adore Robert Pattinson as batman but if Keanu Reeves had the opportunity to play as him – yo, that would be so f****** dope,” wrote one Twitter user.

A second added: “Love to see Keanu Reeves as an alternative Batman.”

“I would most definitely take a Keanu Reeves Batman movie,” tweeted a third.

There are several actors who will play the Caped Crusader.

The sequel to The Batman is said to be a sequel to Robert Pattinson’s role.

Ben and Michael are reprising their Batmans in the upcoming DC movie, The Flash. Bruce Wayne will be played by Michael Keaton in the upcoming Batgirl movie.

Let’s hope that one day, we get to see him live his dream.
