The film Matrix Resurrections is eagerly awaited by fans of the license, and this, while the sequels of the first film were not always at the level of what they expected. Despite everything, the saga is still as cult as ever, and the enthusiasm that has accompanied the release of the trailer testifies to it. Today we invite you to learn about a very popular new theory, which makes Neil Patrick Harris the new big bad of the saga.
The film Matrix Resurrections was directed solely by Lana Wachowski, and despite a few theories on the subject, the majority of the plot is still quite a mystery. We already know that Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as Neo, and that Carrie-Anne Moss will also take over her role as Trinity.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Neil Patrick Harris et Jessica Henwick have joined the cast, and there are currently other rumors that Lambert Wilson will star again the role of the Merovingian, or that Jada Pinkett Smith could play the role of Niobe. If several new recruits have joined the cast, one actor is in particular a lot of talk at this very moment, and this is Neil Patrick Harris.
Neil Patrick Harris as the film’s big bad?
According to many fans, it’s entirely possible that Neil Patrick Harris plays the villain of this new movie. We know, from the words of Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith), that the film Matrix Resurrections sought, unsuccessfully, to bring back the original Agent Smith. This appearance could have been a cameo, a supporting character, or the main villain, but it isn’t. Without Weaving on board, Matrix Resurrections will surely seek to replace Smith with another agent, and it would be very interesting, for that, to write an antagonist completely opposed to Smith. This brings us precisely to the as Neil Patrick Harris.
The latter plays the role of a therapist in Matrix Resurrections, as we can see in the movie trailer. His job is to convince Thomas, aka Neo, that memories of a Machine War and a simulated prison are a pure invention of his brain. The therapist thus provides Neo with numerous blue pills intended to dispel his suspicions. At the moment, Harris may be just a therapeutic program designed by Machines, but the character might be more important than you think. First clue to this: in Harris’ office, we notice a jar of blue pills, and the glasses Harris wears are tinted blue. However, in Matrix, it exists humans who know the truth, but who believe that humanity is better inside the Matrix. The therapist could therefore be a human who seeks to maintain the status quo between man and machines, and who wants to delete Neo’s memories.
In addition, Harris has already proven to us in the past that he would be quite capable of playing the role of an exemplary villain. As Count Olaf in The Disastrous Adventures of the Baudelaire Orphans, the actor has indeed distinguished himself, and he could quite use the same acting and the same qualities to become an iconic villain of the saga Matrix.
