Keanu Reeves is back in The Matrix, and he’s brought along a friend. John Wick director Chad Stahelski appeared as Agent Smith in the latest film. Keanu tweeted his congratulations to Chad on his work and that they were “all good.”
The “Matrix Resurrections” is a movie that features a clever cameo from John Wick director Chad Stahelski. The Matrix movies are one of the most iconic franchises in film history, and it’s great to see them return with this new installment.
The Matrix Resurrections is now available to see in cinemas and on HBO Max. The film has received mixed reviews, with a critics score of 67 percent after 221 reviews and a 66 percent audience score after 1,000+ reviews. “A fine sequel inspired by nostalgia and romanticism,” he said, giving the film a 4 out of 5 rating. The film has a number of easter eggs, including one that was hidden in plain sight. Chad Stahelski, who directed Matrix star Keanu Reeves in all of the John Wick films, plays Trinity’s (Carrie-Anne Moss) husband Chad in the film. That isn’t his only tie to The Matrix, however. In the original 1999 film, he was also Reeves’ stunt double.
“Did anybody notice that Chad, portrayed by Chad Stahelski, aka Neo’s stunt double in the original Matrix and the director of the John Wick movies, is Trinity’s husband in #TheMatrixResurrections?” tweeted @TheJonathanSim. A snapshot of Stahelski may be seen below:

Both The Matrix Resurrections and John Wick: Chapter 4 were scheduled to enter theaters on the same day in May before the epidemic. The Matrix 4 has been pushed back to this week, while John Wick 4 has been pushed out to next year. Reeves appears in both films, but there is one actor who appears in just one of them: Laurence Fishburne. Many people recognize Fishburne from his role as Morpheus in The Matrix, and fans were overjoyed when he reunited with Reeves in the John Wick sequels. While he is likely to feature in John Wick 4, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II takes up the character of Morpheus in the forthcoming film.
Fishburne was questioned about The Matrix Resurrections during an interview with Jake Hamilton earlier this year. When asked why he wasn’t in the picture, Fishburne stated, “I’m not involved, and you’ll have to go to Lana Wachowski, and she’ll answer that question for you.”
We may not see Fishburne as Morpheus again, but we are looking forward to seeing him as John Wick’s Bowery King. A badly wounded Wick was transported to the Bowery King for protection in the last scenes of John Wick: Chapter 3, setting up the next film. According to Collider, Fishburne recently said that their connection would be more intense than before.
While promoting his latest film The Ice Road, Fishburne said, “I should be going to Berlin within the next couple of months or so.” “I had a look at the script. It’s just fantastic. It’s set in the same setting as the previous three films, but it’s darker. In terms of the assassin’s code, it goes much deeper. And his interaction with one guy in particular, whom I believe Mr. Watanabe is portraying, is the heart and soul of the story.”
The Matrix Resurrections is now available to see in cinemas and on HBO Max. The release date for John Wick: Chapter 4 is set for May 27, 2022.
