Apparently, fans of ‘I’m the Legend‘ (I Am Legend) have to thank Michael B. Jordan by the movie sequel.
The astro Will Smithwho played scientist Robert Neville in the original film, revealed to ET that he was convinced by B. Jordan to return.
“The idea came and came from Michael B Jordan. I still can’t talk about it. But it’s a really, really cool idea and he was part of creating that concept. It was one of those movies that I was going to leave alone, and then I heard the idea and jumped at the chance.”, he stated.
The sequence will mark the first time Jordan35, e Smith53, work together on a project.
The announcement left fans confused as his character Neville dies in the original ending. The movie has an alternate ending in which the character survivesbut the first film opted for the more tragic ending that he kills himself.
So how are you going to bring him back for the sequel?
On the internet, several moviegoers were confused by the return of Will. Check out:
I Am Legend has two endings. One where he kills himself with the grenade and another where he gives his wife away for vampires and stays alive.

And I just found out now that I am Legend has an alternate ending.
I liked Michael B. Jordan in the sequel, but I like the better-known ending.
Will Smith could come back as a souvenir, I don’t know.

Plot details, of course, are being kept under wraps.
The Oscar Winner Akiva Goldsmanwhich adapted the 1954 novel by Richard Matheson for the original 2007 film, will also return to write the sequel.
In the plot of the original, a terrible incurable virus, created by man, decimated the population of New York. Robert Neville (Smith) is a brilliant scientist who, without knowing how, became immune to the virus. For 3 years he has been traveling the city sending radio messages, hoping to find any survivors. Robert is always accompanied by mutated victims of the virus, who wait for the right moment to attack him. At the same time, he carries out tests with his own blood, seeking to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus.
Released in 2007, ‘I’m the Legend‘ raised $586 million around the world, from a budget of US$ 160 million.
