The original film of the Matrix series, called The Matrix (1999) became an instant hit when it hit the screens and over the years since then, it has acquired a cult status. The two sequels that followed, namely The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions (both in 2003), were sheer disappointments.
However, director Lana Wachowski now has the difficult task of carrying the legendary franchise forward. Matrix 4 is definitely happening and some fan theories have already gone so far as to suggest that this entry to the series will feature time-travel.
Is the Time Travel Theory Possible?
Well, it definitely is! Laurence Fishburne is not returning as Morpheus in The Matrix 4. However, some fan theories suggest, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, famous for Aquaman, might end up playing a young Morpheus. In that case, Neo and Trinity might have to travel back and forth in time in order to find the right version of Morpheus, all within the Matrix system.
This seems a plausible theory. If it is true, then fans of the franchise will experience the thrill of time-travel in this action-thriller movie. However, no official statement regarding the plot is yet available. Thus, the speculations of fans are what we have to report as of now.
Lilly Wachowski will not be involved in this project. Lana Wachowski co-wrote the film and is set to direct it. A bit of filming was begun in February 2020 but had to be stopped in March 2020 due to the global pandemic situation. It is scheduled to be released in 2022 after its schedule got pushed back due to the pandemic.
