As the date of release of The Matrix 4 is gearing up for the final cast, Neo and a younger Morpheus could have their roles switched in that hasn’t dampened fan enthusiasm for a modern sequel although. Following the age-old rumours, the announcement of a fourth movie in 2019 has prompted movie fans to dive straight into the depths of their closets to dig out the forgotten full-length leather coats.
The Merovingian will have a role in the new film, but more intriguingly, Yahya Abdul Mateen II will appear in the cast playing a young Morpheus! The idea of an older Neo and Trinity in The Matrix 4 alongside a more spry duplication of Morpheus raises a host of questions and possibilities as a whole.
Scrapping The Legacy: Neo
Recent photos from initial sets of the movie appear to confirm Neo’s recurring presence within the Matrix’s digital reality. Reeves dressed in everyday clothes has been spotted to stand on a regular street, a far cry of transformation from The Matrix Revolutions. The legacy versions playing out the same cycle over and over, with each reincarnation of the One to maintain the status quo, has got a good jolt from Neo in this regard.
The Branching Mystification
Whether the enemy is man or machine, it’s tenable that Sati would resurrect the people who saved the world last time, Neo and Trinity, either as Matrix programs or by transcending her powers into reality. If Morpheus had died by that time, the question arises why would he be resurrected as a younger man, while Neo and Trinity remained the same age. This enigma suggests that if Mateen is playing a younger Morpheus, the character will be restored from an earlier version of the Matrix.
If Keanu Reeves‘ Neo and Yahya Abdul-Mateen’s Morpheus find themselves in the same cycle of the Matrix, it naturally follows that Neo is going to be the more “awake” of the two despite going through the painful and soggy process. And this is where the switching of places comes into play where the future Resistance leader would still be plugged-in.
Their meeting in the new film might as well explain why Fishburne’s Morpheus held such unwavering faith in Neo, replacing his journey from a rebellious, angry younger man to the reliable and stoic commander that Neo knows he will become.
