Young Morpheus Shows Up In The Matrix Resurrections Trailer. Here’s What He’s Up To

The Matrix trailer dropped recently and it was basically a public release of the Cinemacon footage but we think there is a lot to be dissected in the trailer. For instance, the characters seen in the trailer are considerably older. Both Trinity and Neo have aged considerably and have not been de-aged for the movie, the characters seen in the trailer are considerably older. Both Trinity and Neo have aged considerably and have not been de-aged for the movie with the help of CGI, which is a strange young Morpheus shows up in The Matrix Resurrections trailer and we know this because Yahya Abdul-Mateen II confirmed his role as Morpheus in an Instagram post following the trailer’s release.

This post came after fans had been speculating for months that the person featured in the Cinemacon footage was in fact Morpheus. Now after the confirmation, we can be sure that this is the same character and he seems to be the only one who knows what is going on in the matrix. After all the things that happened in the Matrix trilogy, Neo and Trinity have seemed to have forgotten what they were and where they are. However, interestingly Morpheus seems to be younger and more powerful than ever. There are several scenes in the trailer that mark just how powerful Morpheus has gotten from the previous iteration of the character. While in the last movies he was able to accomplish long jumps another feat of parkour now he can push back even Neo.

The trailer starts with Neo being treated in therapy by none other than Neil Patrick Harris. It seems that Neo no longer remembers his exploits like the one. He only remembers that something does not feel right about the world. This new millennial spin on the Matrix world has us wondering whether the imposter syndrome of Neo stems from the culture itself. We may not know how things have developed inside the Matrix but we are very familiar with the world that Neo is in. Well, at least with the world that it is modeled after. We wonder what the movie has in store for us. To talk about Young Morpheus in the trailer we thought it was very interesting how the character was portrayed.


We got an image of the original training scene from The Matrix along with some looks into the machine-human farm. Every time we see that place it makes our skin crawl. It is absolutely insane to see the quality of CGI in the trailer. The people behind the scenes have outdone themselves to give us an overhauled yet familiar machine world. We can only imagine what lies in store for the rest of the movie. Part of the trailer involves Morpheus offering the red pill to Neo after he has been taking the blue pill from a pill bottle. It seems that the director is rehashing the trope from the original movie. Although, we cannot know if the pills have more or less significance than the original movie. Another thing to note is that Morpheus already knows that Neo has powers so although he is younger he still retains all his memories.


The Plan

It seems that Morpheus is trying to awaken the dormant powers that Neo has forgot about. This brings us to a whole other part of the trailer. It seems that Neo is not the only one with Matrix altering powers in this new movie. Trinity also pulls off some of the more amazing risks although they both seem to be lost in the Matrix world. Where they have previously accepted the truth now they follow blindly the dream that the machines have built for them.


It will be interesting to see what the movie brings to the table with all these new inclusions. A Younger Morpheus in the trailer with the powers of The One will be a game-changer for the franchise and we cannot wait for the release of the movie.
