Smith’s involvement has raised some questions, considering the fate of his character in the original movie. In the theatrical release, Dr. Robert Neville sacrifices himself in a grenade explosion, which effectively kills the alpha male of the infected humans and saves the cure. However, in the alternate ending, Neville discovers that the alpha male was simply trying to recover his mate. Neville must then confront the fact that his work has turned him into the legendary villain in the eyes of the infected.

Alternate ending to the first movie to set up Will Smith’s return

According to Goldsman, the alternate ending will be treated as canon for the new movie. This means that Smith’s character is still alive and able to return. The new movie will take place several decades later than the original and will be inspired by the success of The Last of Us, a popular video game. The story will explore how the earth has reclaimed the world as man steps away from being the primary tenant.

Goldsman stated, “That will be especially visual in New York. I don’t know if they’ll climb up to the Empire State Building, but the possibilities are endless.” Fans can look forward to a more faithful adaptation of the Richard Matheson novel on which the movie is based, exploring the idea that man’s time as the dominant species on the planet has come to an end.
