Spring boarding off a conversation in another thread, I Am Legend was brought up where Will Smith died in the end…oh spoiler alert? I thought it ended well, with the cure going on to help the remaining human race. I don’t remember the alternate ending …but I was pleased with the outcome of the original.
My personal favorite at this time is Avengers End Game. Yeah, it sucked when Ironman died, but it was a great personal sacrifice ending.
The Director’s cut recognized the mutants as a different offshoot of humans who had gotten used to their mutation and were trying to live their lives.
They were only attacking Will Smith because he was experimenting on them.
The female he captured at the end was the mate of the leader of the mutants. In the alternate ending Smirh returned her to him, smashed his laboratory and went off to the colony in Vermont with the woman and child.
