The Matrix 4 is moving forward with Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss returning, but it seems Warner Bros. might not be bringing back Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus for the fourth film in the franchise.
Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss are set to reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity respectively, but whether or not Laurence Fishburne will return as Morpheus remains a mystery as the actor was noticeably left out of the studio’s announcement. And now we might know why.
According to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, Warner Bros. may be looking to cast a young version of Morpheus in the film which could allude to where in the timeline the fourth Matrix will take place.
If you’ve asked yourself, “Where’s Morbius,” sources have told me this may point to where and when the film is set as I’ve heard execs are looking a variety of actors to possibly play “young Morbius.” Stay tuned on that front… https://t.co/5s3zTJiMey
