If you've been secretly waiting to bring out your black trench coat in anticipation of Matrix 4, we have news for you: the film has a release date! The downside to the news? It's pretty far away.

Though the fourth instalment in the franchise still doesn't have a title, Warner Bros. announced on Dec. 11 that the film will arrive in theatres on May 21, 2021. The movie is taking the release date of the previously announced Akira, a manga adaptation that has Taika Waititi signed on to direct. Waititi is also signed up to direct Thor: Love and Thunder, putting Akira on the back burner for now.

It was first announced that Matrix 4 was in development back in August, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss signed on to reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively. Several more have joined the growing cast since then, including Jada Pinkett Smith, Watchmen's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Frozen II's Jonathan Groff. The premise of the movie is still a mystery, but Lana Wachowski is returning to write and direct, so we don't doubt that the fate of the universe is in safe hands!
