A popular theory about The Matrix and John Wick has been officially debunked because of coronavirus.

Ever since it was announced that the fourth instalments of each franchise would be released in cinemas on the same day, fans have been wondering whether this was an intentional move.

The theory goes that both The Matrix 4 and John Wick: Chapter 4 would serve as two parts of one story that reveals Keanu Reeves’ hitman has actually been Neo (also played by Reeves) the entire time, trapped in a Matrix-style simulation.


However, because of the many film delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, John Wick: Chapter 4‘s release date has moved from 21 May 2021 to 27 May 2022.

Director Chad Stahelski previously said: “I mean, Matrix was only four weeks in when this all happened. So, Keanu’s gotta go finish his commitment up on The Matrix, which is a big deal and which I think will probably take him until the end of the year. Then we have to go into our prep mode and then we’ll start.”

As Stahelski mentioned, The Matrix 4 has also had its production shut down, but director Lana Wachowski is yet to comment on a change to its release scheduling.

Should the new John Wick film change release dates, it would certainly put an end to any high-concept theories relating to a crossover between the two films.

It seems like this particular theory was too good to be true, even if it seemed entirely plausible (read more on it here).

Earlier this year, the world’s first glimpse at Reeve and Carrie-Ann Moss in character as Neo and Trinity since 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions surfaced on the internet, showing a completely different look for Reeves’ character.
