The Childhood Experience That Inspired Keanu Reeves’ BRZRKR

During his San Diego Comic-Con panel on “BRZRKR,” Keanu Reeves discussed his love of comics as a child. “I was that kid coming back with bags of comic books,” he said, “and it was always a good day” (per The Hollywood reporter). He added that as an adult, working on “BRZRKR” has been “some of the best creative days of my life.” In a 2020 interview with USA Today, Reeves explained a little more about how he fell in love with the medium: “You get into ‘Ghost Rider’ and you start reading Frank Miller’s ‘Dark Knight,’ and your mind is blown.” 

Spending so much time reading comics certainly helped prepare reeves to write one. It’s clear that “BRZRKR” was created by a devoted comics fan, as it features a complex protagonist, action-packed scenes, and a storyline with potential for expansion. Reeves has also said that watching anime helped inspire him to make “BRZRKR.” “When I worked with the Wachowskis on ‘The Matrix,’ they were like, ‘You need to watch these,'” he said at his Comic-Con panel (per The Hollywood reporter). “So it was ‘Akira,’ ‘Ghost in the Shell,’ and that’s pretty much the start of it.” 

In addition to his own childhood, Reeves also draws inspiration from today’s children. “A couple of my friends have some kids who can just spit anime,” he said at the “BRZRKR” Comic-Con panel, “and I’m like, ‘That sounds amazing.'”
