According to the official description, the experience is "a high-energy and fast-moving time travel tour of some of the sets and locations from Bill & Ted Face the Music, experienced from the vantage point of the famous Bill & Ted Phone Booth".

And while Reeves has certainly had a long and storied career spanning more than three decades, there is one role he wish he landed: Wolverine.

On a recent appearance on the SiriusXM show Radio Andy, Reeves was asked if he had any roles he would have loved to play in the past.

Reeves said, "I always wanted to play Wolverine".

It's impossible to now imagine anybody other than Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine in 20th Century Fox's series of X-Men movies, but back in the late '90s, another actor was dying to get the part: Keanu Reeves. It's not too late for Keanu to play Wolverine.

Stahelski explained that the decision to go with a more outlandish body count stemmed from a desire to create "a surreal action movie so it wasn't so grounded and gray, just something different".

Reeves added with a laugh, 'It is too late, ' though he added, 'I'm good with it now'. Frank Miller notably collaborated with Chris Claremont to give Wolverine his very first spin-off comic in the 1980s.

Keanu will also be seen in the upcoming science-fiction-comedy, Bill & Ted Face the Music, with his co-star Alex Winter.

Jackman landed the role in 2000 and played the mutant character for nearly two decades before his final movie as Logan/Wolverine in 2017. "Did you really want to play Wolverine?"

The actor had been filming the sequel in San Francisco in March, but was shut down for months due to COVID-19.

Bill and Ted Face the Music will be released in the US on demand and in cinemas from 28 August, with the United Kingdom release due on 23 September.

Star: Reeves and Winter starred as the title characters in 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and the 1991 sequel Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.
