Reeve wrapped up principal photography on his Matrix sequel, which is simply titled Matrix, in November.

On January 16, Warner Bros. confirmed the movie’s title, which led to fans accusing the studio of playing into recent trends by lazily copying the original film’s title.

Although Reeve’s work on the movie is likely finished, action scenes are still being filmed.

Earlier this month, stunt performers wearing all-black attire that appeared to be standing in for him and his costar Carrie-Anne Moss were seen leaping from a San Francisco skyscraper while attached to wires.

The original Matrix trilogy was written and directed by sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowski, but only Lana is returning to direct the fourth film, which she cowrote with Cloud Atlas novelist David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon.

Reeves fans got a treat back in August when he revisited another cult-classic film series for the sequel Bill & Ted Face The Music.

He and his costar Alex Winter, 55, starred in the long-gestating project as aging versions of their title characters who are tasked with writing a song so great that it unites all of humanity and prevents all of space and time from being destroyed.

Around the time the film was released, the film studio Lionsgate confirmed that Reeves would be back as the assassin John Wick for fourth and fifth installments of his popular series, which would be shot back-to-back.

Epic: He also reprised his role in the sequel Bill & Ted Face The Music over the summer, in which he and his costar Alex Winter have to write a song to unite humanity before space and time are destroyed
