Without any given title the fourth Matrix film (also known as The Matrix 4) is an upcoming American film that is based in the genre of science fiction action and apart from this it is the fourth installment in The Matrix franchise. The series featured Carrie-Ann Moss, Keanu Reeves, Hugo Weaving, and Laurence Fishburne, who portrayed the devilish "Agent Smith." The plot of The Matrix is that our "actual " world is not real, but a fake simulation we are forced to "reside" in. In the original world, mankind loses a war to progressive machinery with practical artificial intelligence.

Talking of February 1, 2021, there has been no official story synopsis been released. And due to the actual film trilogy shutdown on an authoritative ending (in 2003's The Matrix Revolutions), it is really anybody’s prediction that what the next story of Neo and the Matrix will be all about. Nevertheless, it can be quickly thinkable that The Matrix 4 is a sequel to the originals instead of not being a reboot of the first movie. However, the Matrix's real concepts in philosophical and religious topics, but not limited to Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Hinduism, shifted itself to an actual and figurative, portraying of death and rebirth. Merging with the series' tech science-fiction universe, we might actually refer to The Matrix 4 as a "remake."

The Wachowskis themselves are trans women, having brought out forward and changed in the years after the release of the film.
