The Matrix: Resurrections Star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Still Won't Say Who He's Playing

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is set to play a big role in The Matrix: Resurrections. In a recent interview with Variety, The Matrix: Resurrections star talks about playing in a familiar world and trying to add a new perspective. Also comparing the experience to working on the Candyman reboot.

“It’s not very different. They both are classics that people love. They come with high expectations of excellence, and audiences cannot cannot wait to see them. And it’s nice to be a part of that. Of course, they also come with the opportunity to, to add your own spin to moments and characters. And we’re looking forward to doing that with the “Matrix” in the same way that we did it with “Candyman.” It’s all an opportunity to tell new fresh stories and to change the narrative and to add a new perspective on it.”

However Abdul Mateen II was tightlipped when asked about the character he is playing in The Matrix: Resurrections?

“In “The Matrix?”  Yeah, I think you’re breaking up a little bit. All of a sudden, I can’t hear you so well.”

As you can see form the related link above, a trailer for The Matrix: Resurrections is expected any time. Now we have various descriptions out there from those who saw the trailer first at CinemaCon, it seems a matter of time. As you will see from that link, it shows Abdul-Meteen II in a scene where formerly you’d have expected to see Lawrence Fishburne in the original. Further adding to the rumors that somehow Abdul-Meteen II is playing a young version of Morpheus, whilst both Trinity and Neo have aged. The Matrix was always wacked, so who knows what the heck is going on here?
