Aquaman Star To Lead The Matrix 4 Alongside Keanu Reeves

  • Published: 11 October 2019
  • This Aquaman actor had better get his hands on a shiny leather jacket and a latex jumpsuit he's going to need 'em for The Matrix 4.

    The announcement of a new addition to the Matrix franchise, directed and co-written by series originator Lana Wachowski, essentially blindsided the film world in August 2019. Even more exciting than the confirmation that Wachowski was set to helm The Matrix 4 was news that original stars Carrie-Ann Moss and Keanu Reeves would return to their iconic roles as Trinity and Neo. Little news regarding The Matrix 4 came out in the time since those announcements, but now, it appears a new-to-the-franchise face will join Moss' Trinity and Reeves' Neo in their fight against the Matrix.

    That face belongs to Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen, who played the villainous David Kane — better known as Black Manta — in the Jason Momoa-led superhero flick.

    Variety was the first to break the news that Abdul-Mateen is circling a role in The Matrix 4. If the outlet's reporting proves accurate, Abdul-Mateen's role won't merely be as a supporting player to his iconic co-stars. Wachowski and The Matrix 4 producers have reportedly spent some time in recent weeks meeting with several actors over what's being called a "secret role" in the upcoming film. While the exact nature of the character remains a secret, we know that it's being referred to as a lead role, and that Abdul-Mateen has emerged from the recent casting talks as the frontrunner to land the part.

    Though it's unclear who Abdul-Mateen will play in the The Matrix 4, news of his potential casting in the film should be met with cheers from fans of the Matrix franchise and of the actor himself, who has become one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood in recent years. Abdul-Mateen is likely best known for his turn as Manta in last year's unexpected blockbuster Aquaman, but he's also delivered more-than-memorable performances on Baz Luhrmann's musical series The Get Down, in the Hugh Jackman-led circus musical The Greatest Showman, and on Hulu's breakout series The Handmaid's Tale. Keep watching the video to see more about the Aquaman star to lead The Matrix 4 alongside Keanu Reeves!

      One of the directors had a sex change. This may seem odd but I wonder if the sister isn't making this movie because she's now depressed. I heard 80 percent of people that actually go through with the operations go into a deep depression years after the procedure and another pretty high percentage of them commit suicide. I'm not trying to sound like he is depressed but I wonder how the relationship is now with the brothers.

          How is this gonna work?

          If its a sequal then itll ruin matrix 3 & matrix online stories, but if its a prequal, then what does Neo have to do with the Story, since he wasnt yet a target in the story...

          Meaning, I am confused where this will take place in the Story, oO

          Could this be a Sequal to matrix Online? If so, Morpheus cant be younger, then... oO

          What do you guys think?

                  the new..... ONE.....(original should have been W.S. (will Smith) keanu is passing the torch(is my belief). PS can new matrix movies stomp MCU?? if you had to choose..... and if you never seen matrix movies you can't comment. who would rule the box office that day.. M4 (Matrix4) or AP4 (Avengers Phase 4)? please use old movies for "leg standing" (proof)

                    Let me be plain and blunt, he will play Morpheus's son. Sometimes the simple answer is the correct one.

That will be logical machine thinking because the wars with the humans as it was explained are cyclical. He is after all an anti virus or could be used as a false prophet , he is a tool to balance the equation for many eventual scenarios
