Keanu Reeves’ stance on Mortal Kombat 1 fans’ Dream DLC


Keanu Reeves, the iconic actor known for his roles as John Wick and Neo, has undoubtedly made a profound impact on the world of entertainment. Yet, when it comes to the fervent desires of Mortal Kombat 1 fans, his response takes an unexpected twist.

Mortal Kombat 1 enthusiasts are no strangers to surreal crossover experiences. This beloved franchise has a history of welcoming Hollywood icons into its brutal arena. From Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator T-800 to Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo, the MK series has seen it all.

Now, a new desire burns within the hearts of fans. Fans want Keanu Reeves gracing the game as either John Wick or Neo. These characters are renowned for their martial arts prowess and gun-slinging action. It seem like perfect fit for the relentless combat of Mortal Kombat 1.

Ed Boon wanted Keanu Reeves to play Kenshi

Ed Boon, the creative force behind Mortal Kombat 1, isn’t immune to this longing either. He, too, envisions Keanu Reeves as a guest character, living out their brutal fantasies within the game. In Boon’s dream Mortal Kombat 1, famous actors embody every character, but Keanu Reeves as Kenshi remains an unfulfilled aspiration.

Keanu Reeves, in a surprising twist, has shown reluctance toward the idea of seeing John Wick or Neo in Mortal Kombat 1. When asked about the possibility in a 2021 interview with Esquire, Reeves firmly stated his reservations. He sees the uniqueness of Mortal Kombat’s universe. Reeves believes that John Wick and Neo have their distinct paths to follow.

While Reeves might not be on board with this particular crossover, his presence in the gaming world isn’t entirely absent. Players can still enjoy his portrayal in Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty.
