Matrix 4 Casting News: Agent Johnson Will Return

Another returning cast member has now been added to the roster of The Matrix 4, with actor and stuntman Daniel Bernhardt now set to reprise the role of the villainous computer program Agent Johnson in the upcoming sequel.


Bernhardt also provided the voice for Agent Johnson in the video game Enter the Matrix and has featured in several other high-profile action flicks including Atomic Blonde and John Wick. Bernhardt last played the character in 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded, in which he and a few of his cohorts took on Keanu Reeves’ digital messiah, Neo, and were promptly taught why that is a bad idea. The return of Agent Johnson is a surprising one considering that the version of the Matrix that he existed in was rebooted at the end of the trilogy’s final installment, The Matrix Revolutions. This could mean that other familiar faces from the previous movies will also be included when audiences once again plug in.


The Matrix 4 is currently scheduled to be released on April 1, 2022.
