The yahya abdul-mateen ii morpheus is a teaser for the upcoming Marvel film, Avengers: Infinity War. In the teaser, we see a resurrected version of Yahya Abdul-Mateen’s character, Morpheus.
Matrix Resurrections’ Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s as-yet-unnamed persona is shown in a new teaser from The Matrix Resurrections. The Matrix 4 was originally announced in August 2019, with the actual title just recently revealed. It is a sequel to the famous Matrix trilogy by filmmaking duo the Wachowskis. The film will be released on December 22, 2021, and will be shown in cinemas and on HBO Max at the same time.
Lana Wachowski directed, co-wrote, and produced The Matrix Resurrections, although nothing is known about it thus far. Keanu Reeves, who has seen his fame soar since taking on the role of Neo in The Matrix with the John Wick flicks, will return to the series, as will his original co-star and Trinity actress Carrie-Anne Moss. Jada Pinkett Smith is also expected to reprise her role as Niobe, the character she played in the previous two films, Reloaded and Revolutions. Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman, HBO’s Watchmen), Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter), Priyanka Chopra, and Christina Ricci are among the remainder of the cast members. Many people are curious about their roles since none of them have been revealed yet.
A series of stills published via The Matrix teaser site (WhatIsTheMatrix) and uploaded on Imgur by user portman87 give a glimpse at Abdul-mysterious Mateen’s persona ahead of the official trailer release. When you visit the teaser site, you’ll see clickable red and blue pills, each of which unlocks a new piece of teaser video. Abdul-character Mateen’s is seen gazing at a mirror and reaching out to touch it, only to discover that the glass ripples like water when touched. In a dojo, he is also shown to be fighting Reeves’ Neo one-on-one.
The notion that Abdul-Mateen is portraying a younger Morpheus, Neo’s guide in the original trilogy made famous by Laurence Fishburne, is supported by these early pictures. The part was not recast, leaving it up to interpretation, and the teaser video replicates elements of the character’s iconography. When Neo took Morpheus’ red pill, he saw a rippling mirror, and with Abdul-Mateen witnessing it this time, it’s conceivable that The Matrix Resurrections may examine how Morpheus discovers his world is a simulation. Furthermore, the battle between Abdul-Mateen and Reeves’ characters in a dojo recreates a scenario from the first film, posing the issue of whether an older Neo is the one who frees and trains a younger Morpheus, only to have him repay the favor later.
These seem to be strong hints, but when the official trailer comes tomorrow, fans will be hoping for a more definite explanation. However, rather than releasing the first trailer cold, The Matrix Resurrections marketing team deserves respect for coming up with a creative method to create anticipation. Fans of the series can only hope that the film lives up to the hype when it debuts in December.
