A new actor will be descending down the rabbit hole and joining Matrix 4. According to Variety, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman, Us) is said to be joining the upcoming film. Abdul-Mateen II will be joining returning actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss.

So what do we know about Abdul-Mateen II’s character in the film? Sadly, it’s not much. However according to source, director Lana Wachowski met with some actors for a “secret role” and Abdul-Mateen II came out on top. What we do know is that he has taken one of the lead roles for the film so we’re going to be seeing a lot of him! While there’s a rumor circulating that a young Morpheus is in the film, it’s currently unfounded and not tied to the actor in any way. We’ll just have to wait and see if that comes true.

While Lana is currently the only Wachowski returning, she’ll be joined by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell helping with the script. The film is still in very early days so we have no plot nor do we even have a release date. So we’ll be continuing to watch for more news! 

What do you think of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II joining the film? Are you excited? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more sci-fi news.
