Matrix Resurrections: images show the new Morpheus, explained by the actor

Matrix Resurrections

Matrix Resurrections, or the fourth installment of the Wachowski film series, will see the return of a fundamental character like Morpheus, but this will be present in a different version, played by actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II who explained something about his role to Entertainment Weekly, in a special with some new images from the film.

We remember, in fact, that the unforgettable original Morpheus was played by Laurence Fishburne but we don't know exactly what it brings with it, in terms of effects on the story, this change of actor with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who tried to shed some light on the matter without being able to go into much detail: "Laurence has already done what had to be done," Abdul-Mateen told Entertainment Weekly , "I think what emerges from the script is a new narrative and some new opportunities that have made room for a new Morpheus in the Matrix universe."

Some speculations have led to think that Morpheus is present in a different version in Matrix 4 due to his demise in The Matrix Online game, but the question does not seem to be related to the choice made in the film. "I play a character who is definitely aware of the history of the Matrix and Morpheus," said Abdul-Mateen, "This character is on a journey of self-discovery, there are many elements that affect the growth and definition of one's path in this story and Morpheus is part of it ", explained the actor.

" It is definitely a different version of the character ", he reiterated, but without going into further detail. For the rest, we know that Keanu Reeves will return in the role of Neo, Carrie Anne-Moss in the role of Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith in that of Niobe, Lambert Wilson in the Merovingian and Daniel Bernhardt in the role of Agent Johnson, while among the novelties there will be Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff and Priyanka Chopra, as well as Jessica Henwick visible in the new images but whose role is not yet known.

We saw the first trailer last month, while in the past few hours the official synopsis shedding light on the plot.

Official The Matrix Resurrections Synopsis Sheds More Light On the Plot

The synopsis for The Matrix Resurrections has shed a bit more light on the upcoming film's plot, including that this new version of the Matrix will be 'stronger, more secure and more dangerous than ever before.'

The synopsis was shared on WB's awards page, where it offers up a 'For Your Consideration' section for The Matrix Resurrections' cast and crew in anticipation of the upcoming awards season.

'In a world of two realities—everyday life and what lies behind it—Thomas Anderson will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. Choice, while an illusion, is still the only way in or out of the Matrix, which is stronger, more secure and more dangerous than ever before,' the synopsis reads.

The Matrix Resurrections is set to be released in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22, 2021, and the first trailer was released for this fourth Matrix film last month following a promotional website that featured 180,000 possible teaser videos for the film comprised of various clips stitched together.

In our breakdown of the film's official trailer, we took a look at how Neo and Trinity were still alive and, perhaps most importantly, what was up with that rubber ducky?!
