Keanu Reeves voices Batman in DC League of Super-Pets, but a live-action version of the Dark Knight has always been his dream role.
DC League of Super Pets is playing now and it’s a great fun family outing for anyone looking to hit the movies. The film also features Batmanplayed by none other than Keanu Reeves, and it looks like the actor has had a Batman role on his wishlist for some time.
DC League of Super Pets is an animated film set in the iconic world of DC superheroes. The film features members of the Justice League like Superman and Batman along with each of their fellow friends. Those familiar with the Krypto animated series won’t be surprised to see that the members of the Justice League each have their own pet.
With a star-studded cast, this movie is a fun treat for those hoping to take their kids to the movies and introduce them to the words of DC Comics heroes. While Keanu could play Batman in this movie, the actor always wanted to play the caped crusader in a live-action movie. The actor is known for playing roles in projects such as The matrix, Cyberpunk 2077and the John Wick series, to name a few. It would be very fitting to see the actor in another version of the character down the road. “It was always a dream, but [Robert] Pattinson has Batman right now and he’s doing great, so maybe later…maybe when they need an older Batman,” Reeves told In addition.
Following the release this year of The Batman, it’s only fitting that DC is going the exact opposite route by having a much lighter film, as it demonstrates their versatility. If Keanu had the chance to play Batman in a live-action movie, it’s safe to say he’d do a solid job. He has the voice, the build, and the aesthetic to play the brooding superhero. Based on its performance in the John Wick movies, it’s very easy to see what he would do if he ever put on the cape and cowl.
For now, fans will have to settle for seeing him on the animated side of DC, but of course anything is possible down the road. Fans are currently in a world where they have three different versions of live action ofBatmanand lately, the world of comic book movie making is almost as dramatic as the stories themselves.
