"Then you are meant for one more thing: Deletion."
~ Johnson to The Keymaker.

Agent Johnson is a supporting antagonist in The Matrix franchise, appearing as the central antagonist of the 2003 film The Matrix Reloaded and a minor antagonist of the 2021 sequel The Matrix Resurrections.

He is a high-ranking member of the Agents who becomes its newly leader after Agent Smith, its previous leader, became a corrupt virus.

He was portrayed by Daniel Bernhardt, who also portrayed Kirill in John Wick and Sven Olsen in Lethal Weapon.



Johnson was required to defeat Neo so he can prevent the One from reaching the Architect. Johnson is also the upgraded successor of Smith, and was determined to keep the Matrix under control along with his two cohorts Agent Jackson and Agent Thompson respectively.

Highway Attack

Johnson ordered his two allies to attack the Resistance in the highway and kill the Keymaker, even attempting to fight against the Twins sent by The Merovingian to capture the Keymaker. His plan failed since Neo rescued them.

Nuclear Power Plant

Johnson and his allies encountered Neo one last time at the power plant and blew it up.

Final Moments

Johnson was killed by Niobe and Ghost at a sparking computer server.


Johnson is less rogue than his earlier counterpart and is willing to stop Neo.

~ Johnson



  • It has been recently announced that Agent Johnson will be returning for the fourth Matrix film, with Daniel Bernhardt reprising his role. However, how Johnson will exactly return is unknown as of yet given his apparent death when Agent Smith seemingly destroys or absorbs him.
