Talking on the premiere of his new movie, Netflix’s The College for Good and Evil, on Tuesday (18 October), Fisburne instructed Variety: “It wasn’t as unhealthy as I assumed it will be. And it wasn’t pretty much as good as I hoped it will be. However I assumed Carrie-Anne and Keanu actually did their factor. Yeah, that’s what I assumed.”
In response to being requested if he “missed out”, he mentioned: “No, probably not.”
Fisburne beforehand addressed his absence from the challenge, which was written and directed by Lana Wachowski, in a New YorkMagazine interview, through which he acknowledged: “I want them effectively. I hope it’s nice.”
He added that whereas it’s “nice” that Morpheus is “most likely the position that I’ll be greatest remembered for”, it’s “not the one factor I’ll be remembered for, which is healthier”.
The Matrix Resurrections was the primary within the franchise since 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions.
Fishburne’s new movie, The College for Good and Evil, is accessible to stream on Netflix now.
