Due to the corona pandemic, the release date of the long-awaited fourth Matrix film has been suspended for a whole year to April 2022. Warner Bros. announced.

In March it was already announced that the filming of the fourth part of the film had been stopped. At that time, however, it was still unclear what consequences it would have on the release date of the film.

The filming of the movie, about rebels fighting a self-thinking computer system, started last February.

The film reunites director Lana Wachowski with lead actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who play Neo and Trinity respectively. New cast members include Yahya Abdul-Mateen II ( Aquaman ), Jonathan Groff ( Mindhunter ), Jessica Henwick ( Game of Thrones ) and Neil Patrick Harris. In addition, Jada-Pinket Smith returns to play Niobe.

The Matrix isn’t the only Warner Bros. movie to have its release date rescheduled. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet was shifted by two weeks to July 31, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 is now out two months later on October 2, 2020, and Godzilla vs. Kong would initially premiere on Thanksgiving weekend in November, but has been moved to May 21, 2021,
