It’s great for Will Smith’s return to the post-apocalyptic sci-fi franchise that I Am Legend 2 will change the ending of the first movie, which was controversial. The ending of I Am Legend is one of the most talked-about changes from the book to the movie.
The 2007 movie I Am Legend is based on the same-named book by Richard Matheson. At first, it tells the story of the book pretty accurately.
Both the book and the movie are about Dr. Robert Neville, who is the only person left alive after a mysterious disease turned most of the people in a city into vampire-like monsters called Darkseekers. But the end of the movie version of I Am Legend is very different from the book.
In the movie version of I Am Legend, which I Am Legend 2 will change, Neville sacrifices himself by blowing up a building full of Darkseekers so that another human survivor can take an experimental cure for the disease to a secret human commune.
The book, on the other hand, ends with Neville finding out that he is a mythical monster among the Darkseekers, who are not the mindless killers he thought they would be, but instead are thinking, feeling beings.
The title of the book comes from Neville’s discovery that he is a scary legend to creatures who live in fear of him.
When it was announced that Will Smith will be in I Am Legend 2, the explosive, much-criticized ending of the first movie had to be changed. Even though Will Smith’s slap at the Oscars hurt I Am Legend 2, the sequel is still being made.
According to I Am Legend 2 producer Akiva Goldsman, the movie will “trace back to the original Matheson book and the alternate ending instead of the ending that was shown in the first movie.”
This means that Smith can play a different role as an older survivor, and the sequel can be very different from the first one if it stays true to the original ending of the book.
The Timeline of I Am Legend 2 Cleverly Sets It Apart From the First Film.
Goldsman doesn’t say how far in the future I Am Legend 2 takes place, but he makes it sound like a lot of time has passed since the first movie. Goldsman says that the action of the sequel will begin “a few decades after the first.”
This means that it has been a long time since Neville killed the Darkseeker in the first movie. This will set I Am Legend 2 apart from the first movie, whose “gung-ho” killings completely misunderstood what the title “I Am Legend” meant by leaving out Neville’s important realization at the end of the story.
Neville, who is played by Will Smith in the movie I Am Legend, is not much more than a typical action hero. He has a few interesting scenes that show how lonely the character is, such as the memorable scene where he tries to talk to a lifeless mannequin.
Neville is a man of science, but that doesn’t stop him from using violence to solve problems, like when he killed the Darkseekers without mercy or when he blew himself up in the end.
