Daniel Bernhardt will reprise his role as Agent Johnson in The Matrix 4 alongside Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
It seems the agents aren’t done with Neo and Trinity in The Matrix 4, since Daniel Bernhardt is returning to the franchise to reprise the role of Agent Johnson in the sequel from Lana Wachowski. Bernhardt joins newcomers Abdul Yahya-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris in the film, although it’s not yet clear what capacity we’ll see Agent Johnson return in. Harris recently revealed that The Matrix 4 has moved on from the original trilogy, so it’ll be interesting to see how that affects the returning heroes and villains.
Daniel Bernhardt was last seen in The Matrix Reloaded and fought Neo with vicious speed. Fans will also have seen him in Atomic Blonde and the John Wick series. The Matrix 4 recently resumed production after a lengthy delay due to the ongoing pandemic and many fans are intrigued to see where the franchise is heading. But after Hugo Weaving revealed that he won’t return as Agent Smith for The Matrix 4, it’s easy to assume that Daniel Bernhardt’s Agent Johnson might fill the role intended for Weaving.
