Seen recently in the new “Candyman”, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will be, on December 22, with the poster of “Matrix 4”, where he seems to take again the role of Morpheus. But the main person specifies that it will be a different character.
On December 22, Matrix 4 (or Matrix Resurrections) will be in our theaters. Lana Wachowski gets back behind the camera without her sister Lilly, as Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprise their respective roles as Neo and Trinity.
Of the magical trio of the first trilogy, only Laurence Fishburne is missing, and everything suggests, in the trailer unveiled there is little, that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II succeeds him in the guise of Morpheus.
Which will not be exactly the case, according to the principal concerned: “It will really be a different iteration of the character”, explains the actor seen recently in Candyman at Entertainment Weekly. “I play a character who knows the history of the Matrix as well as that of Morpheus. He is on a journey of self-discovery.”
“There is a lot of talk in our history about growing up and making your own way. And Morpheus is not exempt. Viewers will come to understand that there are many rules in the Matrix. Age. , appearance and things that we think are real can be manipulated. The Matrix is where anything is possible. “
Words that go in the direction of certain theories born after the trailer. And in particular the one who wants Yahya Abdul-Mateen II to play a character who passes himself off as Morpheus in order to awaken something in the memory of Neo, who has become Thomas Anderson again. Or to trap him on behalf of the machines.
The actor also seems to confirm the metatextual aspect glimpsed in the first images. Which suggested that this fourth episode would be as much a sequel as a film on the Matrix, when a scene from the first part was projected. Despite the details provided by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, the feature film should not fail to intrigue until its release on December 22.
