2003's Matrix Revolutions was supposed to be the end for the Matrix as a franchise. 

For some reason, we're getting Resurrections later this year, and while we don't know why yet, we do know the reason behind Keanu Reeves' return. 

Reeves revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that there are "filmmakers who you wanted to say yes to"

In a separate EW interview, Resurrections star Jessica Henwick also revealed that she turned down an MCU role for the fourth Matrix film. 

So far, HBO Max and Warner Bros. have done a great job keeping a tight lid over the story for the fourth Matrix film.

Matrix: Resurrections will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on December 22.
