It's been 17 years since the last Matrix movie released, and looks like there won't be another for at least two more years.
After delaying highly-anticipated titles including The Batman, Wonder Woman 1984 and Christopher Nolan's Tenet, Warner Bros. Studios has announced that the fourth part of the science-fiction franchise has been pushed from May 21, 2021 to April 1, 2022.
Here's why Reeves returned for the fourth 'Matrix' movie
Talking about why he returned for Matrix 4, Reeves recently said, "Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me."
He added, "That's the only reason to do it. To work with her again is just amazing...It's been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from."
Matrix 4's original release date of May 21, 2021 has now been given to Godzilla vs. Kong. The movie was earlier planned for a November release.
Other major titles that have been delayed by Warner Bros. include Nolan's spy thriller Tenet (now releasing on July 31), Robert Pattinson-starrer The Batman (October 1, 2021), and Wonder Woman 1984 (October 2, 2020).
