It’s official, “Aquaman” star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will star as one of the lead roles in the upcoming “Matrix” franchise.

Abdul-Mateen emerged as the frontrunner to join Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who will be reprising their roles in the film. Director Lana Wachowski had met with actors for the secret role over the last week.

In August, Warner Bros. announced a fourth “Matrix” movie is officially in the works, with Reeves and Moss making a comeback and Wachowski on board to write and direct again.
