During his San Diego Comic-Con panel on BRZRKR, Keanu Reeves talked about his childhood love of comics. “I was the kid who came back with comic book bags,” he said, “and it was always a good day” (according to The Hollywood reporter). He added that as an adult, working on “BRZRKR” was “one of the best creative days of my life.” In a 2020 interview USA Today, Reeves went into a bit more detail about how he fell in love with the medium: “You get into Ghost Rider and you start reading Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight and your brain explodes.”

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

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