“I’m sorry to have to tell you that I know nothing about this sequel except that I’ve heard it’s happening.”

After sharing the news, she also talked about a curious rumor she heard, suggesting that Reeves might portray Gabriel in the upcoming film:

“Unless they’re very late in calling me, I don’t think Gabriel will be flapping his/her wings. I did hear a rumor, I don’t know if you heard it, that Keanu was going to play Gabriel. Which would be beautiful.”

The possibility of seeing Reeves’ as Gabriel in the sequel opens up the path for new narratives. Will the actor play Gabriel alone, or will he have a dual role as Constantine and Gabriel?
