the matrix 4 5 keanu reeves neo Keanu Reeves Talks Matrix 4 & 5, Bill and Ted 3? [Updated]

The Matrix was an industry changing film on several levels, from ground-breaking visual effects to an entirely new way of shooting action sequences, all mixed together with an extra dose of “cool.” It quickly earned itself a pair of sequels in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions which unfortunately, didn’t quite live up to the stature of the original film about Neo, Morpheus and the rest of the human resistance.

While the Wachowskis brought some cool characters and arguably the best soundtrack and fight sequences with Reloaded, it laid a curious path for the trilogy conclusion, Revolution, which was all kinds of bad – for fans and critics alike. The trilogy seemingly saw the end of Keanu Reeves’ messianic character, Neo, but many expected he would rise again and according to Keanu Reeves, that’s actually the plan.

Ain’t It Cool News loyalist “El Nino” sent in info about Reeves speaking at “London school of performing Arts university”  - which I think means the London International School Of Performing Arts – as a keynote speaker. During the presentation, Keanu apparently provided updates on The Matrix 4 & 5 (both in 3D), Bill and Ted 3 as well as a modern adaptation of Robin Hood.

Before we get into the report, my problem with this is that no one else has reported directly about the event, not even the school which is not named correctly in the email sent to AICN. My immediate reaction is to believe it’s false as not one of the reporting sites has verified it. I sent the school a message about the Reeves guest appearance and to Warner Bros. about the news below and will update when I hear back, but here are the key points from the email for you to chew on in the meantime:

[UPDATE: The Senior Administrator for the London International School of Performing Arts informed me that Keanu Reeves made no appearance there, assuming that's the correct school. We're waiting on WB for more info.]

[UPDATE 2: Keanu's rep and the studio confirmed that this is entirely fabricated. The only somewhat true part is about the future Robin Hood script, which we knew about already, but it didn't cost anywhere near as much as $5 million.]

  • He’s currently on a 6-month workout regiment, training for a 3D Rated-R Samurai action film (47 Ronin).
  • He’s committed to Bill and Ted 3.
  • Wachowskis told him over holidays that they finished script treatments for Matrix 4 and 5 which would bring Neo back.
  • Wachowskis have consulted with James Cameron for advice on shooting them in 3D – They’re looking to again bring something entirely new for audiences visually.
  • Talk will resume about The Matrix sequels after Wachowskis finish working on Cloud Atlas.
  • Wachowskis sold the rights to the most expensive script ever ($5 million) to Warner Bros. for a future-based version of Robin Hood that will star Will Smith.

It all sounds good to me (whether true or not is yet to be seen), especially another new franchise for Will Smith. I miss him.

As hesitant as I am about a return to The Matrix, I know I’d be there opening night to see it. However, they’re setting what may be an impossible bar to reach if they hope to revolutionize the industry again. With them possibly shooting another two sequels back-to-back, I fear it may be another milking of the cash cow and a case of quantity over quality. That being said, Reeves promised he’s dedicated to the fans on this one and would only deliver another installment “worth of the title” of The Matrix.

What do you think of these rumored updates from Keanu Reeves?

  1. Any Matrix sequels will have to have a digital Neo. Unless they resurrect him as heavier and 15 years older. Anyone see The Day the Earth Stood Still?
    He looked terrible!

    • I guess the look went hand-in-hand with the movie. 8-D

  2. I Think it will be cool if the matrix was revamed in a new series. if you compare neo to anyone in the Revaloution he is like the Jesusof that world and if thats true he will come back. only problem whats the plot going to be?

    • I hear that a lot, Neo being reference as Christ. But I see it a different way; I see this saga as Arthur, not Jesus. At the end, Neo (Arthur) fights Smith (Muldred) and is injured by Smith but eventually triumphs by giving his own life. In the Arthur tale, he is taken away on a barge (just like in The Matrix) and will eventually return. The code could be Excalibur and the Oracle the great wizard.

  3. Matrix 4 and 5 huh? I want to say No Thanks, but secretly hope that they’d pull a rabbit from a hat. The only negative is that everyone is much older and the training they endured for the trilogy (especialy 1 and 2) would be super tough now.

  4. wa 4 and 5? no thankk u

  5. Matrix 4 & 5, Well, 2 was worth the wait, it took us beyond the Matrix and into Zion. It established the conflict between Smith and Neo that gave the movie a great edge. Now 3 was full of promise and the premise was better that the other two. The final fight scene between Smith and Neo blew me way. I said t myself if the are going to make a Superman the producers better be watching this. The third movie left you empty the end of the war was just dull and the faith of Neo and Trinity more of a cliffhanger to another movie than the final chapter. I will be looking forward to this new chapter, a lot is expected from it by fans.

  6. Bill and Ted 3, Please Keanu just have a Cameo in this, some of us do think you are more that what most say are, even produce it but stay out of it.

  7. A lot of people were dissappointed with the sequels but I would have sat straight thru Reloaded and Revolutions if I could have. If the Wachowski’s want to make 2 more films they need to learn from their mistakes. First they need to make sure the details of the story make sense. Lets break it down into specifics. Why did Agent Smith come back? He makes a great villain, sure, but we saw him destroyed in the first film. Does this mean they will bring him back again? They better have a whopper of an explanation if they do! Did the keymaster provide keys for all of the “Ones” before Neo to get to the Architect? How could he if Merv had been imprisoning him? If the “One” before Neo met the Architect what happened to him? It’s likely he didn’t have a love interest like Trinity so he didn’t have the same choice of 2 doors to walk thru. If he knocked the Matrix down where is he now? What happened to all the “Ones” before Neo? I thought there was only 1 predecessor to Neo? Where’s the explanations for all these story points?

    Why are there so many contradictions in Reloaded? Did the Wachowski’s write this sequel and forget everything contained in The Matrix? We’re told by the Architect that Zion has fallen 5x’s before? Why doesn’t Morpheus, or The Oracle or Merv know this; especially since Merv claims to have met Neo’s predecessor? Wouldn’t Merv have met many, if not all, of Neo’s predecessors? Better yet why don’t the people of Zion know this and why do they keep going back to the same place to be defeated? Did the machines kill all of the inhabitants each time? That seems unlikely if the previous “Ones” chose to knock down the Matrix. If there were no survivors each time how did they find Zion over and over again? There should have been survivors going back 5 generations that would have learned from the previous attempts to defeat the machines. It sems to me it’s all sloppy writing. The Wachowski Bros. were so excited to make the freeway fight the centerpiece of Revolutions they forgot the simple rules of continuity: cause and effect. I hope in the time since they last made a Matrix film they have worked it all out.

    • Well, firstly it isn’t true that there are sequels en route. That’s been debunked.

      As to your questions, some were addressed in the films.

      “Did the keymaster provide keys for all of the “Ones” before Neo to get to the Architect? How could he if Merv had been imprisoning him?”

      - Yeah, it seems so. Getting past the Merovingian is one of the challenges the Ones had to face and overcome in order to reach the Source, and the Architect.

      “If the “One” before Neo met the Architect what happened to him? It’s likely he didn’t have a love interest like Trinity so he didn’t have the same choice of 2 doors to walk thru.”

      - He did what all previous Ones did, he restarted Zion. He’ll still have had 2 doors, because the choice part is stressed as key. But without Trinity in the equation he won’t have chosen to return to the Matrix via door 2, if to do so would mean he thought every human on earth would die *including* those friends. (He’s also told Zion is going to be destroyed whatever he does, so nobody he knows can be saved, either way.) Neo cared more about Trinity than everyone else put together. The Architect commented that all Ones were created by the machines to have a passionate attachment to other people. Previously, that had been generalized into an attachment to humanity. For Neo, that intense attachment became very specific indeed: Trinity.

      “If he knocked the Matrix down where is he now? What happened to all the “Ones” before Neo? I thought there was only 1 predecessor to Neo? Where’s the explanations for all these story points?”

      - The previous Ones *didn’t* knock the Matrix down because they were never intended to do any such thing. The whole business of the Ones was created by the machines, to divert the humans who sensed something was amiss into a harmless, controllable form of rebellion. They created Zion, they set up the myth of the return of the One meaning freedom and the end of the war, and then they hauled each new One in and made him restart the cycle and reboot the Matrix by so doing.

      - Neo says to the Architect that “nobody knows” in Zion about all the previous Ones, which makes perfect sense, when you think about it. If the One is just another system of control, then the 23 people each one frees from the Matrix to rebuild the new Zion will know nothing about how he got to be there, and the entire population of Zion is wiped out completely at the end of each cycle, ready for the new One to create a new Zion. The only human ever to know the truth will be the One alive at that time, and in the circumstances it seems unlikely that they’d be telling anyone else. And each One dies a long time before the new One arrives. So the population of each new Zion will believe what they are told – that this One freed the first of them (true) that another One will appear one day (true) but not that they’re all just part of a pressure valve for the Matrix, that siphons off the rebellious and channels their energies into fighting the system in a manner carefully set up and controlled by the machines themselves. Zion is a machine-created system of control, as Neo explains to Morpheus.

      “We’re told by the Architect that Zion has fallen 5x’s before? Why doesn’t Morpheus, or The Oracle or Merv know this; especially since Merv claims to have met Neo’s predecessor?”

      - Merv does know this: hence why he says “I have survived your predecessors and I will survive you.” Predecessors, plural.

      - The Oracle also knows full well, as Neo finds out when with the Architect. In fact she doesn’t just know, the entire thing was her idea in the first place. The Architect says the “solution”, by which he means the system of the Ones, was stumbled upon by the Oracle herself. She is, after all, a program herself, as she admits to Neo.

      - Morpheus doesn’t know, because he is just a Zion resident, and none of them do. So there’s nobody to tell him. The Oracle’s hardly about to.

      “Wouldn’t Merv have met many, if not all, of Neo’s predecessors?”

      - Very probably, and he implies as much when he says he has “survived your predecessors.”

      “Better yet why don’t the people of Zion know this and why do they keep going back to the same place to be defeated? Did the machines kill all of the inhabitants each time? That seems unlikely if the previous “Ones” chose to knock down the Matrix.”

      - Well, firstly we don’t know that Zion is always in the same place. All we know is that the machines decide where Zion will be and get the new One to start to populate it. The previous Ones didn’t choose to knock down the Matrix. “Knocking down the Matrix” is never on the table at all. That part of the Prophcy is a lie, as Neo tells Morpheus. “The One was never meant to end anything – it was all just another system of control.” The Architect comments that Neo’s reactions are very different to all previous Ones, who knew that unless they did as the Architect said and chose Door One, everyone in the Matrix would die when the Matrix crashed, and as Zion was being destroyed too that would mean human extinction. Neo choosing to risk all that just to try to save his girlfriend is kind of a curveball.

      “If there were no survivors each time how did they find Zion over and over again? There should have been survivors going back 5 generations that would have learned from the previous attempts to defeat the machines.”

      - Because the machines would select where Zion was and take the One there, and because there were never any survivors, as the Architect states.

      “It sems to me it’s all sloppy writing. The Wachowski Bros. were so excited to make the freeway fight the centerpiece of Revolutions they forgot the simple rules of continuity: cause and effect. I hope in the time since they last made a Matrix film they have worked it all out.”

      - I agree there were a shedload of issues with the movies – how Neo went from being able to alter the Matrix around him and delete Agents at will, to just being really, really good at kung-fu, and able to fly, is a shocker; also his going from a determination to “show these people what you don’t want them to see” to not having a clue what his role is jars somewhat. And the pacing is dire, which means people checked out of concentrating on the plot points (as your post shows – when very bright people aren’t keeping up with the plot, the storytelling is failing, and badly). The “Neo having powers in the real world” may be explicable because he has a lot of machine hardware in his head, and all his powers are machine-related, but it messed horribly with people’s suspension of disbelief, and just didn’t work for most of the audience in consequence. Lots of issues, I completely agree. But the actual plot itself is on the whole pretty good, I think. It’s just very poorly realized indeed.

      • @perfect_storm, You waste too much time defending the Wachowski Bros. The real answer is they should have paid attention to the story in the first film rather than be distracted by more chase scenes in the sequel. Any explanation to cover their mistakes is just double-talk. It’s a sign of bad writing. Everything you typed should have been in the film if it were true. None of it was explained because they didn’t have the explanations. It is the film-makers obligation to get the story straight. We shouldn’t have to hash it out on a internet comments section.

        The continuity could have been saved in Matrix:Reloaded by changing a few words or lines. Merv could have said “predecessor”, (singular not plural). Neo, Morpheus and Trinity don’t seem to perplexed by Merv’s mention of “predecessors”. It seems to go over their heads with no reaction at all. It should have hit them like a ton of bricks. I didn’t completely catch it myself because of Merv’s accent. They don’t mention it in the elevator when they leave or ask Persephone about it either.

        The Keymaker could have explained this was only the second time he helped someone reach the Architect.

        Eliminate the line where the Architect reveals Zion fell 5 previous times.

        Also Neo should have also questioned Morpheus about his predecessor after meeting the architect. You have to ask why hasn’t the subject come up before between the two characters? Morpheus does not seem to speak of the previous “One” as a legend he heard abut but as someone he actually met. When he mentions him I think everyone watching were sure he met and knew the Previous “One”. Having met him conflicts with the revised timeline the Wachowski Bros. present in the sequels. This would make it very difficult to say such a long time has elapsed between Neo and his predecessor and the fall of the previous Zion when it seems Morpheus has met the man.

        It defies all reason that the people who reconstruct Zion would keep it’s previous downfall(s) a secret one time; let alone 5x’s. It’s the script-writer’s perogative to create some of their own internal logic in a story but it seems unlikely it would happen that way. I would certainly tell the next group: here’s how we lost-now learn to overcome it next time and win. Secrets like that can’t be kept, (except it seems in Sci-Fi movies). The audience on the whole didn’t buy it.

        @790, Your points are valid. The Villains in a film do not usually tell the truth-or the whole truth; they lie when explaining things to the hero. That would be a good answer but I think my suggestions are much simpler and perhaps take less explaining.

        • When I say: Also Neo should have also questioned Morpheus about his predecessor after meeting the architect. You have to ask why hasn’t the subject come up before between the two characters?

          I meant to type:Also Neo should have also questioned Morpheus about the death of his predecessor…

        • Honestly, I disagree. I think there are huge problems with the films, and massive plotholes, and I agree the sequels are inconsistent with the first movie, but I think your points are mistaken.

          Firstly, when the Merovingian says “I have survived your predecessors” there’s no reason to assume he means previous Ones. It could just be people who have challenged him before. You’re operating with an assumed knowledge problem yourself there. How could the characters in question, as written, begin to believe that there had been a succession of Ones from that one line? They’re all true believers in the Prophecy as told to them, and anyway, it’s unrealistic to think they might instantly twig such a massive and complicated conspiracy from one, oblique, throwaway line. It’s such a shocker of a reveal when it does come that a lot of the audience missed it even then. The whole idea totally stands the first movie on its head. Actually, in theory it’s one of the things I like. It was such an interesting idea – a genuinely shocking twist. Unfortunately the execution failed pretty badly.

          Secondly, assuming the he will know anything about the previous events is just that – an assumption. He’s got to be part of the system, given his role, whereas the Merovongian isn’t – he’s a rogue program. Which means the Keymaker can be rebooted at will, as the system requires. He’s designed for that purpose, as he says himself. He doesn’t need to have a memory of past events at all. To assume he does, when that screws up the plot, is pointless.

          Thirdly, Neo has it confirmed to him by the Architect that nobody told him about the five previous Ones because nobody knew, so why would he bother to challenge Morpheus? The person he challenges, quite correctly, is the Oracle, who was in on it. The only survivor able to tell anyone in Zion was that generation’s One, who wasn’t going to. And sure, you could have had a scene where Neo explains all this to Morpheus, Trinity and Link, but it would have been redundant. (Which would, admittedly, have had much in common with much of the Reloaded script.)

          790 has an issue when arguing that the Architect tried to convince Neo he was a program, because in fact the Architect insists Neo is human about 5 times in that one scene. His parting shot is that Neo is hopeful, which he then says is “the quintessential human delusion.” As a theory, it doesn’t actually work with the script at all. There’s also an interesting point about the series – allegedly, nobody really lies. They don’t always give the full story, they don’t always know what’s going on themselves, but they don’t lie either. That was apparently a deliberate choice by the Wachowskis – according to Keanu Reeves, anyway. He said as much in interviews when asked if the Oracle had lied to Neo.

          My big continuity issue is much simpler: how can a guy who could supposedly “remake the Matrix as he saw fit,” be shown six months later with nothing other than superior fighting skills, the ability to fly, and relatively minor telekenetic powers? It’s also inconsistent if you compare what he said at the very end of M1 (“I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see…” etc) with what he’s allegedly done by the start of M2 (just freed a few more people than they were in the habit of doing before he rocked up). Then there’s the fact that once you give him powers in the real world, you screw irrevocably with the internal logic of the movie universe and destroy the suspension of disbelief. I understand that the Wachowskis had an explanation for that – that he’d been to the source, and afterwards had some kind of wireless connection to the machines – but it doesn’t alter the fact that that didn’t work on screen for almost everyone who saw it. I think a lot of the sequels’ plot points only make sense if you’ve read the shooting scripts (the directions clarify a great deal), which is a serious, serious indictment of them, as far as I’m concerned. A script that makes no coherent sense on screen is a bad one.

          The other reason the second two are nowhere near as good as the first is pacing. There’s no sense that the films are building to a climax, they just meander, and too many scenes are self-indulgent and don’t serve the primary story. It’s especially strange when the pacing and scripting was so tight and sharp with M1. I can only assume they were given complete trust by the studio after the first was such a smash hit, and not pushed into rethinks and rewrites, as they had been the first time. Rather as very successful authors get less and less effective editing as their careers grow.

          • Sorry, the “he” at the start of the second point is the Keymaker.

          • perfect storm,

            AWESOME comment, thanks.

            Vic

            • Neo mast not have diet!But I will love,love to see more Matrix only if Neo comes back!!!!!!!!

    • John, maybe you should watch the sequels again. Concentrate this time though. The previous “Ones” never destroyed The Matrix, their code was reinserted. Every person from Zion was killed and the “One” then frees a dozen or so ppl from The Matrix and helps rebuild the city before his death. His Code/Life exists in 2 parts. Humanity’s original savior and after his death and resurrection, humanity’s prophesied savior. As for The Oricle and Merv, they’re part of that revolving circle of life and “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

  8. @John Michals, I’m going to try and answer your Matrix 2 & 3 questions…
    ^
    Agent Smith’s program was destroyed by Neo’s spiritual energy. I never had a problem with Smith becoming a “rouge virus” after that. Who knows what advanced Virtual Reality hardware can spawn? It also led to a deeper connection between the two characters. A connection that won over most fans.
    ^
    I thought it was pretty obvious that the Architect was was exagerating/lying about Zion falling 5x. When Neo saved Trinity it was pretty obvious the Architect wasn’t the all knowing god he pretended to be. It was a bluff, and after that Neo became even more powerful. What’s the problem there?
    ^
    The Merovingian would never reveal the truth to Neo, as he hated the Oracle and couldn’t care less about Neos crusade. Loved that character.

    You want sloppy writing, check out a Adam Sandler film. :)

    • Problem with that is, Neo challenges the Oracle on why she never told him about the previous Ones, about Zion, and then adds for good measure, “why didn’t you tell me the truth?” and she answers that it wasn’t time for him to know. He asked who decided that, and then answers his own question – “me.”

      She confirms that it’s true.

    • Ok, Adam Sandler line, awesome…

  9. martix 4and 5 wow is going asome

  10. @perfect_storm, says,,,
    ^
    “The whole business of the Ones was created by the machines, to divert the humans who sensed something was amiss into a harmless, controllable form of rebellion.”

    Close, it was a way to divert Neo into believing he was nothing more then a program. Both the Oracle and the Architect played off this lie for their own gains.

    I thought this was well known,,, ?

    • It’s an interesting theory, but it isn’t one that’s well-supported by the script, that I can see (“although the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human”). It sounds more like a fandom theory than canonical fact, unless it’s from the online game, which tbh nobody paid much attention to. It’s definitely not well known as a theory, much less widely accepted as fact, in any of the sites I used to visit.

      You could argue that the mention of “created” implies he’s a program, sure, but given the humans ever connected to the Matrix *were* created, and that the only argument for Neo’s powers in the real world (other than the matrix-within-a-matrix or his being a magical messiah) are that he has a connection with the machines, it seems to me that that statement is reasonably well-supported, too.

    • I thought the Ones were created because of the programming of the Matrix. According to the Architect, his “heavenly precision” of code created an byproduct due to the calculations. This byproduct was the code that the Ones carried. The previous Ones always chose to save the people of Zion but Neo chose to save Trinity instead. In previous incarnations, the machines destroyed Zion and the Ones always rebuilt it and started again. This is why the Architect said they have become so precise in destroying it.

  11. i barely watched the 3rd matrix..{i was intent on seeing it after falling in love with the first 2 but was disappointed}..Now why on earth would i want to see a 4th or 5th Matrix…Me thinks not!

  12. People the stoey line for 2 and 3 has holes as big as the gran canyon yet we enjoyed 2 and lets be honest we were upset with 3 because of its eternal paradox ending which took us no where.3 Like I said before it seemed like a cliffhanger and not an ending. If they don’t make others it would be a waste of a perfect follow up to story that never really concluded.

  13. hmm Matrix 4 and 5 sounds cool to me. I liked the whole matrix trilogy but its going to be very hard to top the previous matrix films. If this is true i am looking forward to it in the future and the futuristic robin hood film staring will smith since he is my favorite actor but bill and ted 3 just sounds lame to me.

  14. Is Keeanu going to do Constantine 2?

    • now that i would like to see…{loved Constantine}

    • I trice that! (conan)

      Constantine was god awesome, it was like an Exorcist comedy lol! It also was one of the few movies that got me up after the matrix. I would love to see them step it up a notch.

  15. If anyone’s read any of the Vampire Huntress Saga, I think Will Smith should have a hand in bring the series into a film franchise. Its disgusting the way vampires are portrayed in film and tv 2day wit their “Shiny Chest” and crap. If you haven’t read any of the books, you need to rectify that immediately. Think of Blade, Book Of Eli and Belly all in one.

    • @ctheO.N.E,

      Thanks for that big time. I’m kinda sexist when it comes to my my books, but Minority characters are so far and few between in Sci Fi, so i’ll give this series a peep.
      Here’s one for you. Google “We’re Alive” podcast.

      Respect!

  16. Matrix 4 and 5? I think a remake of the Matrix sequels would be better, especially Matrix 3. Yes, I do realize the story does continue after Matrix 3 in the form of Enter the Matrix (who played that game anyway?), but let’s make Matrix 3 the solid ending it was supposed to be before moving on.

    Also, a late 40′s Keanu Reeves reprising Ted? Yuck.

  17. My comment on “rumor” updates….thats just it…they are “rumors” I read on several sites that the Matrix one was totally fake 100%….and from the IMDB site it doesn’t show Weeves future films…it does show the 47 Ronin film on his list of upcoming films. So ya…rumors are rumors end of story

    • Fan9000,

      I guess you didn’t take the time to read our entire article – we debunked this above.

      Vic

  18. MATRIX 4 & 5 would be fine, great even so long as they don’t try to re-boot without rebooting it and they really woudl be better of NOT trying to comtinue ths story with Neo. As much as I like the character and even the actor I know the best thing is to let 3 stand as the end of the Neo character.

    A much better approach would be a pre-quel focusing in on teh earlydays of the Morpheus chacacter. The prequel could show that when awaken Morpheus trns out to be teh first person to bend the rules of teh Matrix. Up till that time the humans have basically just monitored the Matrix and ocassionaly ventured in to get info but none have dared to even engage non-agents while in the Matrix. The arrival of Morpeus changes all that and starts them down teh path to resitence of the machines.

    Also instead of having undefeatable agents (since this would be early on) I’d rather see defeatble agents of teh system where the machines themsleves don’t realize its OK for tehir own guys to bend the rules.

  19. i think matrix 4 and 5 would be awesome since the first 3 movies blew me away it would be good to make more matrix movies they could call the 4th one enter the matrix and set it back in the early days of the matrix and the 5th one path of neo and set it as the last of the matrix saga where neo’s not dead just had all the energy taken out of him in that last fight and he turn the matrix into heaven a place where there’s no more runing no more fighting just peace that would be so cool i think they did leave the last movie wide open so it would be cool to see another 2 movies so they can wrap it all up

  20. Without Trinity? What the f@#k??? No thanks! I am a big fan but i think is going to be tiring enough.

  21. i want to ask everyone….something from m2,why did trinity jump out the window being followed by an agent…obviously she had to escape the agent..but even if she did manage to escape him and avoid getting shot…she would have crashed into the ground anyway so either way she would have died…and please don’t tell me that neo and trinity had a telepathic convo about it(which is also 1 of neo’s superpowers in matrix) :P…she could have rather taken a leap onto rooftops like she did in the first part..btw perfect storm your answers are really sensible

  22. the matrix is the best movies of all time so mi gente shut up pleas and all of us going to see a sucess from this production if they do it….

  23. O yes im there

    • The matrix is a lie, and your life is a trap or is it the other way around? lol I love the movies, despite being crazy as and confusing as hell!

  24. The Matrix IV & V… As excited as i am to hear this news (my brother was the first to inform me about this possibility) I love The Matrix Franchise, but it just won’t be the same without Carrie Ann Moss/Trinity :( I love her character as well as Neo.She is the one who first introduces us to the realm of The Matrix, in that Kick-Ass opening scene.A superwoman dressed in black.I remember how i couldn’t help but notice how similar she looked to Ursa from Superman II :D and when she touched the telephone glass and disappeared she resembled Christopher Reeve as well. How can they make sequels to The Matrix without Trinity? She and Neo were a Dynamic Duo as well, they were soulmates.Will he have a new love interestin the sequels? That would be like Romeo romantically falling in love with someone other than Julliet!! Wherever they want the story to go, they have a ‘Tall Order’

    I wrote a prequel/reboot of The Matrix.A ‘show don’t tell’ story about “The Life of the First One” I loved the story Morpheus told Neo about him.When i heard it, i was intrigued, fascinated and yearned to know more: so i fleshed out the story and made it into a 2-Part Film Screenplay…

    Perhaps i should try to pitch it to Warner Bros ;)

  25. What’s with all this ilogical thinking, I all so see this stupidity on youtube. Neo didn’t die , did you see him death, just bringing him on a table that doesen’t meen his death, and what if his blined they can always fix that with the new tehnology. And did any of you imagine that the real world culd be a nother matrix, just making people belive they escaped from the matrix.

    • If you read the script, the Wachowskis write a direction: “Neo dies”. Unless you imagine that know better than they do… he’s dead.

  26. Nice comments. i like perfect_storm’s explanations. Actually I was trying my self to figure out the architect’s comments, and i was unsure about neo’s choice regarding the doors. Perfect_storm cleared that really well.

    But when the Merovingian sais that he survived Neo’s predecessors is after Morpheus and Trinity left with the keymaker so they don’t know. The movies are confusing and require some thinking and in many cases a lot of thinking.

    All three are remarkable and outstanding. I remember that difficult books required rereads and quite a bit of contemplation. The Bible is constantly being studied interpreted and reinterpreted. Coming to lesser books we perhaps have met some that were quite hard to understand, just like the Matrix movies. So the movies need some studying, and debates. Just as you would comment on a piece of literature you need to comment and understand these movies.

    Anyway, the movies are really good and need revisions, they’re not your average every day chicken soup, they need a lot of digestion.

    I can’t wait fo 4 and 5 if they r coming out soon.

  27. By perfectstorm: My big continuity issue is much simpler: how can a guy who could supposedly “remake the Matrix as he saw fit,” be shown six months later with nothing other than superior fighting skills, the ability to fly, and relatively minor telekenetic powers? It’s also inconsistent if you compare what he said at the very end of M1 (“I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see…” etc) with what he’s allegedly done by the start of M2 (just freed a few more people than they were in the habit of doing before he rocked up). Then there’s the fact that once you give him powers in the real world, you screw irrevocably with the internal logic of the movie universe and destroy the suspension of disbelief. I understand that the Wachowskis had an explanation for that – that he’d been to the source, and afterwards had some kind of wireless connection to the machines – but it doesn’t alter the fact that that didn’t work on screen for almost everyone who saw it. I think a lot of the sequels’ plot points only make sense if you’ve read the shooting scripts (the directions clarify a great deal), which is a serious, serious indictment of them, as far as I’m concerned. A script that makes no coherent sense on screen is a bad one.

    perfect storm, i agree with mostly everything you have pointed out,

    I dont understand why you mention the above statement.
    I mean in Neo’s mind and everyone elses he is the first to defeat an agent. he’s flying high!(no pun intended) he’s making threats and he should! plus his discovery of his own abilities is a process, at one point he didn’t know he could stop bullets…at another point in time, he could. he didn’t know he could make the matrix as he saw fit…Smith was doing that.

    you mention the wierdness of Neo being able to control machines in the ‘real world’. as crazy as that was the first time I saw it. I just wonder why you dont mention the wierdness of Smith coming into the real world as, whats his name, Bane.
    just a theory here, perhaps smith coming into the real world allows Neo do to some crazy stuff in the real world…there were both comatose at the end of reloaded… anyway
