Somewhere in the middle.Where does I, robot rank?
The problem with doing that with MIB is it was such a buddy cop flick. Tommy Lee Jones probably one of the best straight man in a comedy duo. It's why despite the ending he was immediately brought back for MIB2.After reading your post Master Zik you think Will's franchise should've been Independence Day, MIB, or if he had taken the Matrix could that have been his home? Or maybe he's okay riding the 4th and 5th position. Being #1 is a lot of pressure and he already did that at the height of Hollywood in the 90s. Also he kinda seemed like the center of the suicide squad movie.

The problem with Independence Day is it was a one off. Will was also in this kinda lane where he wasn't doing sequels like that. He'd move from a comedy to action to sci-fi and not look back. ID wasnt made with a sequel in mind and if it was it was always gonna be years later. You can't just have the same aliens keep coming back to invade Unless you switch up the format and make it more of a war action flick.
His best chance was The Matrix. I would've liked to see him take that for 3 movies. Most likely a Matrix 4 (and 5 & 6) would've been made much sooner than it is now with Keanu.
With the movies he did make, I'd probably say I, Robot. He could've turned that in to a franchise. It technically is still a buddy cop flick but its with a faceless drab looking robot so Will is the clear #1 star in that. Also I Am Legend if you change the ending or do a bunch of prequels.
SS was centered on him a bit but it was never his movie.
When it came to pure entertainment and more on the fictional side Will's best chance was with a sci-fi franchise or straight up action/action _____ movie. 2000s and 2010s had Will doing a bit more serious dramatic movies though and then filler comedy stuff.
He probably thought he had something with Gemini Man.
Still on that drunken bender I see.Typed all that
His movies are trash
20 years later I don't know if he's making that statement.
I agree. Some of the scenes look like some greater value Will's fighting washed Will.Yeah they faked a deep fake, the CGI in Gemini Man was awful.
