Feige said they really want Keanu Reeves in a Marvel movie.  So who would be your pick for his character?  I actually think with his build, he could pull off a pretty good Cyclops in an MCU X-Men.

The rumor's Adam Warlock. I could see it work.

Yeah. Adam Warlock was my first thought.

Personally, I'd cast him as either Moon Knight, Jack of Hearts, or Aaron Stack/Machine Man. Mmmaybe Werewold by Night?

Adam Warlock would work for me. But, man...some people have suggested he 'd be perfect as Namor and even Reed Richards. WTF?!  

He's got the look for Namor, but I don't think he's right for that role.

My take on some suggestions and a few of my own.

Cyclops? No way.  Too old.  Cyclops/Scott Summers (IMO) must be an actor in his mid to late teens.  The X-Men on screen need to GROW as the MCU tells their tales.  A 40+ year old Cyclops doesnít make sense if you want these stories told with the kind of patience they deserve.

Adam Warlock?  No way.  Too old.  James Gunn himself said his take on Warlock is that he was created to be the perfect specimen for his people so he doubts he would cast an older actor (as people were suggesting Matthew McConaughey way back when).

Namor?  Ummmm....naaaahhhh.....maaaayyyybeeee.....except there are so many actors (less known and better suited) who makes more sense.  I was once the hardest advocate for the Rock as Namor...but the passing years are killing that notion.   

Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze - 
NOW weíre talking!  Johnny Blaze exists in the MCU (thanks to Agents Of SHIELD).  The motorcycle riding version of Ghost Rider could be done right for once....within the occult area of the MCU established by Dr. Strange and AOS.

Moon Knight - 
Yep.  Keanu would make a great Marc Spector.  THIS is my hope.

Taskmaster - 
Hmmmm....ok.

Silver Surfer - 
As a mo-cap actor?  Ok.  Iím curious.

Reed Richards - 
I havenít seen Keanu with a conservative haircut in years.  Iím curious....but cautious.

Mostly cool because then Morpheus and Neo would have both played the Surfer in movies....

Considering Keanu Reeves' age and current action movie-star status, personally I'd be leaning more toward Kraven the Hunter.

Ooohhh, that's not bad. 

To be perfectly honest, I'd even accept him as The Punisher on the big screen after seeing the John Wick movies. Minimal dialogue, intriguing villain, lots of violence and shooting.

Though I wonder if he's tired of stuff like that.

Forbush Man!!

Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to John Wick 3 hitting Blu-Ray and DVD and seeing him in Bill & Ted 3 next year than I would ever be seeing him in a Marvel movie.

My top 3 picks:

3.  Dracula, in a full-on TOMB OF DRACULA movie!

2.  Machine Man... good call, Ronald!

1.  Wonder Man... make it so, Marvel.

************************

Not set on who Keanu could play, but I thought Jason O'Mara from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would have made an excellent Wonder Man:

Wonder Man already exists in the MCU.  Ok...Simon Williams already exists in the MCU.

And he is played by Nathan Fillion....
