Will Smith Talks 'Independence Day 2' & Fate of His Character

Will Smith has broken his silence regarding the upcoming movie Independence Day: Resurgence.

The 47-year-old actor, who won’t be appearing in the sequel, reveals how he first reacted when he heard his character Steve Hiller – SPOILER ALERT! – had died.

“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.”

In case you missed it, watch the first trailer for ID2!
