With everyone who was christened the original trinity in the Matrix Trilogy making a return for the fourth installation of the movie making a comeback – ie Neo and Trinity, one would have expected Morpheus to be one of the calls to make a return. Alas, it seems not to be so. The Moses of Zion has not been called back to reprise his role.
In an interview with New York Magazine, the actor Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus, said:
I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great… [Morpheus] is probably the role that I’ll be best remembered for, which is great; it’s not the only thing I’ll be remembered for, which is better.
The cast includes Jessica Henwick, Yahya Abdul Mateen II (who has been rumored to be playing a young Morpheus) as well as Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity. Even
Ms. Entanglement Jada Pinkett Smith is set to reprise her role.
