“Wanted” is a story about a normal guy named Wesley (James McAvoy, “Atonement”) who is recruited by a secret band of assassins. Angela Jolie’s character, Fox, trains Wesley and transforms him from a zero to a hero. “Wanted” is loosely based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones. In my opinion it is not a question of how but will Angelina Jolie come back to reprise her role of Fox for the sequel of “Wanted”?


At the end of the movie “Wanted”, Jolie’s character takes a bullet to the head which makes it a little difficult to resurrect her character. According to MTV, “Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov has already come up with a way for Jolie’s character to come back which has to do the “recovery room” featured in the movie. The recovery room contains baths of wax where people go and soak in these baths in order to recover from their injuries. I must say, if this is method of bringing Jolie’s character back – then that wax bath must have some serious healing powers in order to have someone recover from a gunshot to the head.

Jolie’s character was definitely one of the more complex characters in the movie, and when she died at the end of the movie, it was a bit of a let down but it made sense in terms of how the story unfolded. Now if Jolie signs on for “Wanted 2”, what will be the reason for her character to come back? It is kind of a paradox for her character to come back, so hopefully the reason to bring her character back is relevant to the plot and enticing enough for her to believe to sign on for the sequel.
