Will Robert Neville Come Back in ‘I Am Legend 2’?
Smith says his character Robert Neville dies in the original film’s ending, an alternative ending on the DVD reveals his survival. The sequel will unfold in that alternate world.
Smith said, “I have a call with Michael B. Jordan tomorrow. The script just came in. I’m probably giving away too much information. Smith added, “We’re going with the mythology of the DVD version where my character lived; I can’t tell you anymore, but Michael B. Jordan is in, and we’re doing it.”
