With Warner Bros. now at work on a fourth Matrix movie, there’s word on a first new addition to the fourth offering in this genre favourite franchise.

Via Deadline, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is being lined up for a lead role in the picture – with certain speculation even suggesting that he could be playing a younger version of Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus.

Abdul-Mateen II is likely best known for his turn as the nefarious Black Mantra in Aquaman, not to mention his appearances in Us and Black Mirror.

Already confirmed to be returning for this new Matrix effort are Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and writer/director Lana Wachowski.

The current plan is for the film to start production early next year.
