Smith originally joined the franchise in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. She even had a leading role in the PlayStation 2 title Enter the Matrix. There are currently no details as to how large a role Niobe will play in the upcoming film, but many are speculating how she could return to the franchise given the ending of the trilogy, similar to returning stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Many even believe this collection of returning characters will shepherd the franchise off to newcomer and lead star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is speculated to have some sort of relation to Lawrence Fishburne’s Morpheus.
In other entertainment news, Scarlett Johansson and more are pushing for an all-female Marvel movie.
