Will Smith May Not Return for MEN IN BLACK 4

The third installment of the "Men in Black" series was a big success, so it comes as no surprise that the studio wants to continue with the franchise. They may however, have to produce it without their leading man, Will Smith.

When promoting his newest sci-fi film "After Earth", he was asked about his interest in a fourth adventure as Agent J. Smith stated, "I think three is enough for me. Three of anything is enough for me. We’ll look at it and we’ll consider it, but it feels like that it might be time to let someone else do that."

I can certainly respect an actor wanting a trilogy to remain a trilogy and to not keep milking the cow, but what does that mean for the franchise? Would it be as successful or even feel like the same film without the charming leading man? Part of the fun is his chemistry with the less-charming Tommy Lee Jones and they already explored time travel by incorporating Josh Brolin in the last film as the younger Lee. So what other plot twist could they create here in order to not have Smith included and still feel like the same series?

"After Earth" was not as successful as Sony might have hoped, which could perhaps be due to people wanting to see a Will Smith movie, instead of seeing a Jaden Smith movie. This may also prove to be the case with "Men in Black", since he no doubt shines in that role.

Do you think they should still make a "Men in Black 4" if Smith does not sign on? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
