Will Smith returning for an Independence Day sequel seemed like a real no-brainer: director Roland Emmerich’s original film, released in 1996, established Smith as a legitimate blockbuster star and helped earn him the nickname Mr. July.

With all these major players, it stands to reason that the film should have a fairly major villain to match. Over the last several months, we’ve learned a lot about the film, but there’s one thing that hasn’t been revealed, and that’s the identity of the film’s big bad. That might have just changed.
