If the first three Matrix movies made you hero-worship Neo (and Keanu Reeves) thanks to the over-the-top action scenes, you are in for far more with Matrix 4. Just follow the rabbit and explore what Neo and the Architect would be up to at the ending of Matrix 4.
Keanu Reeves is coming back as Neo in Matrix 4 to die (again) and take the Architect along with him in the ending. While not much is known about the fourth edition of the 90s movie series that defied all laws, most signs point that the movie might be a prequel.
Plugging back in time
It is common knowledge now at Keanu Reeves will be taking center stage in The Matrix 4. This gives a confirmation of sorts that his character, Neo, will be alive for the movie. Either the writers will pull some physics strings to undo his “apparent” death in The Matrix Revolution. Or the writers are simply going to place Neo back in time. The second possibility sounds more convincing.
Either way, we will find out how deep the rabbit hole goes.
And it is even supported by quotes from Lana Wachowski. Lana is coming back to co-write and direct The Matrix 4; the fourth in the franchise that she and her sister crafted. “Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”
The ideas that Lana and Lily explored 20 years ago might be the perfect recipe for a prequel.
Neo is alive but will die in Matrix 4 ending, so will the Architect
Whether the writes of The Matrix 4 chose to do a prequel or a sequel, Neo is surely going to be alive. In case it is the latter, the writers would have to force their way into logic. There is a possibility where Neo comes back and fights The Architect who has been one of the constant antagonists of The Matrix universe.
In the process, Neo and the architect can both die until the ending of The Matrix 4. A scuffle of the two powerful characters will most probably lead to that possibility. So when Neo dies this time, he is taking the Architect along with him.
But if The Matrix 4 wins the fans’ heart despite its ending making Neo and the Architect meet their fates, be ready for a Matrix 5. And let’s face it, there is no Matrix without Keanu Reeves who just refuses to age.
Either way, The Matrix will always be a prison for your mind. It will keep you hooked until the very end! Keep coming back to DKODING for more such interesting stories. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
