After a long break, Keanu Reeves finally returns to his cult role as Neo. But not only actors from the originals are in Matrix 4 with it. The newest face on the side of Neo should recognize many from Aquaman. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II recently appeared in the superhero movie and lands next in the Matrix. Here you can find all the latest information about the fourth part of the famous sci-fi series.
For almost two months, we now know that the work is on Matrix 4. The creator Lana Wachowski continues the saga of the Chosen Neo after a long break. Even Carrie-Anne Moss is back as Trinity at the start. But also the newest matrix generation will be illuminated in the sequel. Therefore, there are now young talents like Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Lana Wachowski has chosen him as one of the main characters.
Abdul-Mateen is currently one of the rising Hollywood stars. Only in the last two years he became really present in the cinemas. First starred in the fluffy Netflix series The Get Down. Recently he was able to get a bigger role in Aquaman. Soon we will see him in the new Watchmen series and in the remake of the horror shocker Candyman.
There is still very vague detail about his appearance in Matrix 4. The entire script of the sequel is kept strictly under wraps. But of course there is a lot of speculation among fans and critics. For some time there have been rumors that a young Morpheus should play the central role. According to some sources, this is played by Abdul-Mateen, but others contradict this theory. Maybe it could also be a son or nephew of Morpheus instead.
It is still unclear when Matrix 4 will be released in theaters. Filming will begin in the course of next year. But anyone who knows the Matrix films also knows how costly post-production is likely to be. The theatrical release of Matrix 4 could probably take place at the earliest in 2021 or even only in 2022.
