While we have known for over a year now that Will Smith would not reprise his role in the sequel to Independence Day, Independence Day: Resurgence; the untimely death for his character was a shock to the entire community.

In the ID4 universe, Cpt. Steven Hiller is killed when he testflights a hybrid F-22 Raptor combined with alien technology in ID4 Year 2007. By that time, he was promoted to Colonel and was revered as the world's savior. 

As stated in a recent interview, Smith states "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 can agree on one that, that is we are all sad about the death of Will Smith's character. Maybe not in the fashion that everybody would've liked to see Smith's character die, the deed is done.

More about Independence Day: Resurgence (movie)

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day: Resurgence's release date is June 24th, 2016.
