Birth.Movies.Death wrote: "According to two independent sources we've spoken with, one idea that's gained a lot of support is a prequel film starring Michael B. Jordan as a young Morpheus. Our understanding is that a Morpheus film has long been a concept favored by the folks at Warner Bros. The studio has established a writer's room (a sure-fire sign that WB is gunning for multiple films/franchises), and our further understanding is that this Morpheus idea is one of several being kicked around."

Morpheus, the captain of the Nebuchadnezzar, was played by Laurence Fishburne. Though, a lot of back stories related to Morpheus including his early relationship with Niobe and his visit to The Oracle were touched upon in the series, the prequel could plunge deep into his past.

Earlier, a number of websites reported that it could be a reboot, like WB's recent project – Kong: Skull Island. But Zak Penn cleared the air on Twitter saying it will not be a reboot.
