The first Matrix had a big influence from comics. Reloaded was as much a Graphic Novel as anything (insane action x never-ending nerdy explanations, dialogues before and during fights) and Revolutions was…horrible.
Yeah, they should try to remake it. D.C. Comics should try to incorporate the Neo story into a futuristic saga and just put him into the superhero thing, where he belongs.
I love the original Matrix, but I’m not against the idea of trying again with it. The only thing is: you can end up like the Terminator franchise (from wich the Matrix took a lot of things, by the way).
