I am Legend 2: Michael B. Jordan x Will Smith – What we know so far

There’s something about Will Smith and his fantastic movies. Be it an alien-whacking Independence Day film or The Pursuit of Happiness. The man has done it all – from gun blazing to heart-tearing. Also, face slapping but that’s another deal of another day. Yes, fellas, here’s everything we know about I am Legend 2. And we are having a Michael B. Jordan x Will Smith happenin’.

Will Smith still be on the backlash after the big slap?

It is notable that following Smith’s controversial incident of slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars, several of his projects were either halted or canceled. The slam did not grant him a positive response. And the fans that were disillusioned by his behavior with his buddy comedian can hope to find solace with this announcement.

I am Legend has been the legend

  1. I am Legend was definitely one of the most intriguing post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie. The entire tone of it was set around the protagonist and his beloved German Shephard. Based on the 1954 novel as its source material, also titled I Am Legend, by Richard Matheson.
  2. The writer knew their tinge when they threw in the human-pet bonding along with the apocalyptic scenario.

In my head, it was one of the good movies I remember from the time I used to stay glued faced to the TV.  And I definitely remember googling “When will I AM Legend 2 come out?” (if it ever even will). The 2007 me will be proud. So proud.

Michael B. Jordan in I am Legend 2?

Set decades after the original movie, “I Am Legend 2” featuring Michael B. Jordan and Will Smith in the cast, was announced last year as a sequel to the 2007 post-apocalyptic film. Smith will reprise his role as Dr. Robert Neville, with Jordan joining the cast.

Although as of now, there is no proper confirmation on how Jordan’s character will be fitting into the storyline.

On the side news – Keanu Reeves

Well, things also look good for Keanu Reeves fans. As the DC hailed Constantine film is also scheduled for a sequel. It seems this finally is the year of golden sequels of underrated amazing films.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Akiva Goldsman discussed his new first-look agreement with Warner Bros. and provided a positive update on the progress of two projects: I Am Legend 2, starring Smith and Jordan.

“This will start a few decades later than the first I’m obsessed with The Last of Us, where we see the world just post-apocalypse but also after a 20-30-year lapse.” Said Goldsman.

Goldsman, the writer and producer, stated that the two films are currently being fast-tracked. Additionally, he divulged some important plot details, including that the I Am Legend sequel will be set decades after the first movie and will draw inspiration from The Last of Us.

How will it fit with the original film’s ending?

We all were confused by the leaked alternate ending of I Am Legend back then in Youtube. That has been a major topic for anyone discussing I am Legend 2 ever since 2007.

Goldsman revealed some significant details about the timeline and plot of I Am Legend 2. The sequel will be set decades after the first movie and, as many had speculated, it will follow the alternate ending of I Am Legend, in which Neville survives.

The original ending had seen Neville sacrificing himself to save the cure, whereas the alternate ending was closer to the novel. That’s about the majority of important everything we know about I am legend 2. If we left anything, feel free to comment down below.
