Say what you will about Netflix’s now defunct Iron Fist series but I enjoyed both seasons and even with its flaws, the second season was one of the best and the biggest bright spot was Jessica Henwick who really came into her own in the sophomore season and unfortunately, we will probably not get to see her again in the role of Colleen Wing who is a fierce ally to Fanny Rand.
There is some good news on the horizon if it pans out as Deadline is reporting that Henwick is in talks to join the highly anticipated Matrix 4. The news comes on the heels of yesterday’s report that stated Neil Patrick Harris joined the film and that Jada Pinkett Smith was in talks to return as Niobe.
Word has it that Henwick had one hell of an audition and Director Lana Wachowski is looking to put a female version of Neo in the new installment and that Henwick is on the lead for it.
Henwick is one busy actress as she also will be in the sci-fi horror thriller Underwater with Kristen Stewart as well as Godzilla Vs Kong which I’m excited about.
If the deal works out, Henwick will join franchise regulars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss and also Aquaman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II who may be playing a young Morpheus.
Of course, besides casting news, we know nothing about the fourth film and have only rumors and speculation to go with but it does make it exciting still. The ending of the last film certainly makes it extremely interesting to see where they go from there and hopefully Reeves and Miss will have larger roles and not just extended cameos. Henwick will certainly provide some pop in the action set pieces.
This project is certainly interesting and I speak for everyone when I say I cannot wait time see some first footage next year as production is set to start early 2020. Get ready to jack back in folks because The Matrix is coming back online.
Check out Henwick in action from Iron Fist and hopefully she’ll get her female Neo on in the next installment!
