We’re excited for the new Independence Day movie. But we admit that we are going to miss Will Smith. He is Independence Day. At least he is to us. Yes, we know that he is not going to be in this movie and we’ve accepted that.
Hey – at least we’re getting Liam Hemsworth in this movie.
Will Smith finally commented on his characters fate.
“I was working on Suicide Squad during that time,” Will told Yahoo. “[Independence Day director] Roland [Emmerich] and I had talked about it. The trailer looks really cool. I’m going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out…It was terrible when I found out my character died.”
We’re sad that Will Smith won’t be in the movie, but we’re looking forward to seeing just how they spin the story.
