According to reports, Keanu Reeves turned down the role of Yon-Rogg in the upcoming Captain Marvel film.

During an interview with Charles Murphy on The Hashtag Show podcast, Reeves reveals he was cast to play the role, but due to his contract obligations, was forced to decline to continue his role as John Wick in the third installment of the series, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. As a result, English actor Jude Law was cast as Yon-Ragg instead. Maybe fans can expect to see Keanu Reeves in other superhero roles later down the line since Marvel and Reeves have both expressed interest in working with each other and Reeves has played the role of Constantine in 2005.

In the meantime, Captain Marvel goes “higher, further, faster” in new Super Bowl LIII TV spot.
