The Matrix 4 Finds New Lead In An Aquaman Star”

Warner Bros. announced in August that a fourth "Matrix" film is officially in the works, with Reeves and Moss returning and Wachowski on board to write and direct. Warner Bros.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who portrayed the character Manta in Aquaman as well as the father of Lupita Nyong'o's character in the Jordan Peele movie Us, has reportedly been tapped for the secret lead role.

Lana Wachowski's The Matrix 4 is teeing up to bring the franchise back in a huge way. The actor will join Matrix franchise stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the upcoming film.

Variety first reported the news of Abdul-Mateen II's casting. While there have been rumors of a young Morpheus being involved in the story somehow, reporter Justin Kroll said he couldn't get confirmation on that.

In addition to Aquaman, Abdul-Mateen notably appeared recently in the "Striking Vipers" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror with Anthony Mackie, as well as Jordan Peele's horror film Us.

Laurence Fishburne played the role of Morpheus in The Matrix and the two sequels that followed. However, it's unknown if Abdul-Mateen is up for that role or a different character in the film.

Plot details are now being kept under wraps for the sequel, which jumps off of the premise that the reality in which all humans live is actually a computer simulation controlled by an alien race harvesting the energy of mankind.

Warner Bros. has not set a release date for this fourth Matrix film, but production is anticipated to begin in early 2020. Hopefully his exposure from The Matrix 4 will catapult him into more major roles.

All three previous Matrix films, which were written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, have collectively earned more than $1.6 billion.
