Jonathan Groff is presenting a newincarnation of Agent Smith, a Neos perpetual adversary who was played by Hugo Weaving in the firstMatrix trilogy. In his EPK interview, Groff talks about finding the character, and how his fighting style for the character contrasts with Keanus'' style as Neo.
It''s brutalistic and strong its strong, heavy punches, but the Keanus style is more smooth and fluid. So, they wanted to see how aggressive and effective they were... so we spent a lot on posture and hitting hard when you hit, flowing through and then hitting hard when youre hitting. It can make me kind of robotic.
These interviews include other interesting details, as well as Jada Pinkett Smith says that the old Niobe we see in the new trailer is 90 years old, and now the leader of a new human city named IO. Here are a few more images ofThe Matrix Resurrections:
