    Will said Val Kilmer would have been Morpheus if he took the role

    Facts :russ:

    Whole movie would've been different too because Keanu is never dialog heavy in his films. Whereas Will talks nonstop in his movies. Even i am legend he was yammering the whole and it was just him and a dog.

    I think it would've been as successful to be honest
    imagine having blade and then matrix would've been amazing for black films :wow:

    It would've been just as successful, and perhaps given his action movie career a longer stretch.

    I'd have been more worried about Will trying to pull off that robotic look Keanu had. Will was terrible in After Earth playing the same kind of character

    It's definitely a different movie

    But we probably wouldn't have got Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus

    As in life, things worked out as it should.

    And if Will played Neo it would have been a shyt show. And a corny ghostwritten song to go with it.

    I would prefer "Whoa" than a needless laugh.
