Matrix 4

Matrix 4 Release Date:

Matrix 4 will be released in May 2021. What should you know about this sequel with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss?

At the end of summer 2019, a new film in the Matrix saga was made official. This announcement followed several months of rumours, which even evoked the affront of a reboot.

Good news, therefore, Matrix 4 will remain in the same universe as the rest of this cult SF saga.


It will be written and directed by Lana Wachowski in person (here too, we are reassured), with two co-writers. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will also be there.

This sequel is now all the more imminent when a date has been announced: the film will be released in theatres on May 21, 2021.

As if there was a big spell in the matrix, John Wick 4 will land on the big screen on the same date.

The two films putting Keanu Reeves at the top of the poster will, therefore, face each other at the box office.

That said, we mainly put all our cinematographic hopes on matrix 4. At a time when cyberpunk is experiencing a resurgence in popularity,

Lana Wachowski has all the cards in for a new masterpiece which, like the very first opus, will be a milestone in pop culture.

What do we know about this long-awaited sequel? It will take more than one to lift the veil on the most important scriptwriting elements.

Filming will start in early 2020, we will not see any trailer before the end of the year or even 2021.

Many elements regarding the casting and the production of the film are however already there and the scriptwriting possibilities are already exciting. , We take stock.


As mentioned, Lana Wachowski is back in both directing and writing, alongside Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Jada Pinkett Smith also returns as Niobe. We can note the arrival of Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff and Jessica Henwick.

A riddle of the cast is the absence of Laurence Fishburn, the mentor of Neo, the one who gave him the choice between the red pill and the blue pill.

Rumours on the web have suggested for some time that a young version may well appear, and the addition to the cast of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta in Aquaman) has only made this assumption.


The movie’s timeline is not clear anyway. If the official code name is Matrix 4, it simply means that the work will be in the same universe as the previous ones ... not that it will necessarily be the direct, immediate result of the third opus.

A kind of virtual journey into the past is widely conceivable and could justify a young Morpheus alongside the real Neo and Trinity.

But with the matrix, everything is possible: nested or simulated worlds, different programs, a game sometimes difficult to unravel between illusions and realities.

The present itself of Neo and Trinity is a "problem" to try to discern the scenario of this new opus. At the end of the trilogy, the shock duo is, apparently, dead - Trinity in a crash, and Neo sacrificing himself in the heart of the matrix.

Only ... it's not that simple and the final replicas of the film leave a huge opening. As peace finally returns, the Oracle says that a new war is inevitable in the future. Sati, the program embodied by a child, asks her if we will see Neo again. The Oracle responds that, yes, it is a possibility.

The return of the character is all the more likely and logical on the narrative level that the Wachowski gave him from the beginning a figure of the messiah.

He is the Chosen One. Links with Jesus' journey have often been noted by fans of the saga, especially since his death is similar to crucifixion.

What would a messiah be without a spectacular resurrection? Finally, let us recall that the architect revealed to Neo that there were, in the past, other versions of him, five other elected officials. Nothing prevents the engineering of a new ... different or resuscitated.

These openings and so many others in the narrative of the trilogy prove that Lana Wachowski and her co-writers have more than enough to justify the return of flagship characters and the absence of them, in a scenario that can quite to fit into the logic of the past trilogy.

To finish this recap, note that a fifth opus would already be in the cards, under the pen of Zac Penn, the latter confirming in passing that neither of the two films is a reboot and that everything is in the original universe of the matrix. In short, that is good news, for now.
