Young Morpheus seems to be coming to the new Matrix movie, according to recent reports.
After years of asking and even clamoring for a while, Warner Bros. is finally going to dive into the 'Matrix' universe again. The last movie was released almost two decades ago, and since then, people wanted to know what became of the precarious peace between the humans and the machines.
The ending was almost complete as well as ambiguous in the way the final words were spoken and made it all seem like there are more stories to be explored in the unending world of 'Matrix.' So, it was a shame when the third 'Matrix' movie was not well received, and the studio pulled the plug on a possible continuation of the series.

At the time, the story of 'Matrix' seemed stale and repetitive, with no groundbreaking achievement being made like the bullet time system in the first film. It all felt redundant and repetitive, which resulted in the general fans losing interest and Warner Bros. seeing the writing on the wall, the third movie was the last one to be successful.
Well, the world of Hollywood is in constant flux, one day, the tide is drying up, and the next day there is a flood. When it comes to 'The Matrix,' a perfect storm played its hand in the movie, getting a green light. Keanu Reeves saw the kind of resurgence no other actor before was able to muster up, and this resulted in the adoring fans flocking to every move the actor made.
