Keanu Reeves and Norman Reedus have both had their names at the top of fan-casting lists to play Ghost Rider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years now, with the majority of the fandom debating as to which actor is more fitting for the part.
However, now fans of The Matrix and Daryl Dixon stars reckon the two may actually be set to work together on a project, which was all due to a new post made by Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima.
This all sparked when Kojima took to Instagram on August 19th to post a few images of Norman Reedus with Keanu Reeves without even captioning the post, not even an emoji.
See below for the original post.
Will Keanu Reeves Be In Death Stranding 2?
The images seem to be from the upcoming sixth season of AMC’s real-world series Ride, in which Reeves has been confirmed to be starring in alongside The Walking Dead’s Reedus.
However, despite the pairing between the two being the ultimate gift to geeks worldwide, Kojima posting with no context naturally sparked speculation within the Death Stranding fan community.
It’s safe to say that every gamer in the world knows that Reeves is a character in CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 as Johnny Silverhand – this alone broke the internet.
Kojima and Reedus’ Death Stranding 2 is one of the most anticipated games out there, with the first seeing its fair share of celebrity cameos, fans are now convinced that Kojima plans to get Reeves involved for the second instalment of the series.
Even if this wasn’t Kojima’s intention, it seems now that the tides have been set, the song has been sung, and the fans have spoken – will the Death Stranding 2 team get Reeves involved?
Extreme secrecy surrounds huge games such as this one, meaning that Reeves could already be involved, or at the very least in early talks to join Reedus’ Sam Porter Bridges for a quick cameo or maybe even a larger role – we’ll just have to wait for further updates, stay tuned.
Death Stranding 2 does not yet have a release date set.
