Some of the previews are narrated by Yahya Abd al-Mateen II, who has long been speculated as a new version of Morpheus. It turns out that his narration and visuals mention the character originally played by Laurence Fishburne.

“This is the time to show us what is real. Now, what you think is… but that could not be further from the truth. It may be the first day of the rest of your life, but if you wish, you will have to fight,” as says part of the narrative.
The text is similar to what Morpheus says to Neo when he meets him in the Matrix trilogy. In addition, the narration appears after the Internet user chooses the red pill, the same pill that is given to those who awaken from the imagination created by the machines.
With that said, it looks like Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, from The Legend of Candyman, really appears as the likable character.
Keanu Reeves is back as a villain Matrix 4
The scenes also bring Keanu Reeves back as a fresh-faced neo. Appearance, as noted by many fans, is the same as that of John Wick.
But besides that, the movie’s villain – or at least one of them – has been revealed. Jonathan Groff, from the movie Frozen and Mindhunter, appears as a potential agent for the machines that wanted to let humans dream into the Matrix in the trilogy.
Between scenes, a Groff character appears with his mouth shriveled, a reference to the trilogy, and he also narrates who chooses the blue pill – to those who choose to stay in the Matrix’s fantasy.
With that said, the actor appears to be taking on the role of Agent Smith, the great villain in the original Matrix trilogy.
The return of the Trinity and the new allies
Location Matrix 4, or The Matrix Resurrections, also quickly shows the return of Trinity, once again played by Carrie Anne-Moss. She came back to see Neo again.
At the same time, the appearance of Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist) was revealed. With short blue hair, the character appears to be an ally of the humans in the story.
The images also reveal a possible view of the real Earth from the Matrix universe, in a scene that appears to contain a spacecraft.
