In addition to Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Wachowski came back to star as Trinity and Neo, respectively, in the spite of their seeming demise at the conclusion of Revolutions. Apart from Trinity and Neo, many other famous characters came back from before Matrix movies for The Matrix Resurrections, mostly played by their original actors.

Most, in particular, included Jada Pinkett-Smith as an elderly version of Niobe, the present leader of the human city of Io, The Matrix that replaced Zion after Neo apparently brought a conclusion to the war between machines and humans. Sadly, two major came back characters were recast with new actors, those being Agent Smith (with Jonathan Groff replacing Hugo Weaving), and Morpheus (with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II replacing the actor Laurence Fishburne).

This really makes the 2nd time Weaving did not reprise a big role in a hit and blockbuster franchise, as he rejected to come back as Red Skull in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame after originating the part in Captain America: The First Avenger. While that matter proved to be rather bitter, as Weaving did not like his experience working with Marvel, that is thankfully not the case for his failure to come up in The Matrix Resurrections.

Rather than, the absence of Weaving comes down to a Hollywood staple: scheduling disputes. As Weaving informed Collider in the year 2020, when it came time to make The Matrix Resurrections, co-writer and director Lana Wachowski very much needed him to reprise his role as Agent Smith. After the first bit of hesitation, Weaving agreed to do just that. Though the actor was busy doing a stage play at that time.

The 2 sides entered into negotiations to attempt to make The Matrix Resurrections schedule work out so that Weaving is able to do both projects, but as per Weaving, Wachowski proved unwilling to book the dates Weaving wanted. Weaving does not come up to hold the decision against Wachowski on a personal level, but it is apparently disappointing that things concluded the way they did.
