Keanu Reeves’ latest appearance in shaggy hair stirred Matrix fans with ideas about what Matrix 4 could be all about. The latest chatter is nothing short of enlightening.
While most people have been assuming (without a speck of doubt) ‘The Matrix’ 4 will be a sequel, a new perspective claims it might actually be a prequel to the trilogy! All this has been derived from Keanu Reeves’ latest appearance filming around Matrix 4’s film set in San Francisco. Shaggy haired and bearded, Keanu Reeves is no longer his young-iconic-Neo-self that we got used to in the Matrix trilogy. His latest look has charged fans’ minds with various interpretations about what could be the plot of Matrix 4.
- Keanu Reeves new look is not in sync with Neo
- Are we looking at another Matrix Reboot?
- Matrix 4 to be a prequel?
Keanu Reeves is not in sync with Neo
He is way older than his black glasses and black trench coat self, but still, the actor fans would prefer to see in the Matrix. After the Matrix trilogy ended in Neo and Trinity’s death, the only obvious plot was a Matrix Reboot. But being the obvious choice of events that unfold, it would be a concept that no producer would prefer to invest in. Now, with Keanu Reeves’ latest look on the sets of the upcoming film, various theories are being hatched.
Even though the cast and crew of Matrix 4 are not putting in any extra effort to conceal the filming, no major information about the movie’s plot is leaked as of now. But with the available bread crumbs, people are threading a possible plot for the Matrix 4. The foremost hint among these is Keanu Reeves’ look. It has made people re-think and question the basics.
What if Keanu Reeves is no longer portraying Neo?
So what exactly will be the 55-year-old actor’s role then? If he will not be playing Neo, this means Keanu would be seen as Mr. Anderson. Anderson is Neo’s version from the quasi-real human world that we saw at the very start of the first Matrix movie. He was groomed into thinking that his destiny was to be ‘The One’ who would destroy the machine in the Matrix.
Matrix 4 will be a prequel
If the upcoming movie, Matrix 4, will be a prequel to the trilogy, it could easily fit in a middle-aged Mr. Anderson (Keanu Reeves). The movie could, in fact, be completely based out of the Matrix itself. Instead of the Neo and Trinity we know, this movie could delve into the lives of Neo and Trinity in a world before the ‘humans vs machines’ war.
Moreover, such a storyline could conceal the middle-aged actors and give a logical reason as to how Neo and Trinity are still alive.
