The Matrix is a beloved, classic sci-fi movie but its sequels, Reloaded and Revolutions, are mostly remembered as being disappointments. However, the latter still wrapped up the trilogy in style, and while there were occasional rumblings about a reboot (led by Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan), that was where we thought the story had ended.
Last December, Warner Bros. released The Matrix Resurrections, bringing back a number of key cast members, including Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. After finding a way to resurrect Neo and Trinity, the very meta movie also saw Morpheus make his return, though he was played by Aquaman's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II this time around.
Recently, Fishburne was asked (via SFFGazette.com) if he watched The Matrix Resurrections, and it doesn't sound like he was overly impressed.
"Yes, I did. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...and it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be," the actor said, drawing laughs. "I thought Carrie-Anne and Keanu really did their thing and, yeah, that's what I thought."
Pushed on whether he regrets missing out, Fishburne deadpanned, "No, not really."
