This is a topic no Hitman fan wants to discuss but its a must. Another user on the forum brought up a very good point. David Bateson is getting old. So is Agent 47. There will come a time when bateson retires and stop lending his voice and perhaps that is when our bald killer clone should hang up his suit per se and call it quits as well. Mr.47, Tobias Reiper, Whitebread, (death of a showman lol) he goes by many names but what makes him well… Him?
Hes a cold and calculated killer with much history behind him. Many games and stories have been told. But there comes a point when you can’t exactly tell anything NEW with his character in terms of emotions and whatnot without having long time fans scratching their heads and discussing wether “47 would do that”.
I mean we are at the perfect time to introduce a new clone to be a protagonist. The HITMAN 3 story could go anywhere. But after that? Im personally intrigued with the idea of 47s DNA being stolen and used against him in a smart way. Sergei had control of Mr. 17 and he attempted to attack 47 directly. What a stupid waste of man at equal talents of 47. Sergei shouldve went after the ICA with Agent 17.
Anyways a new younger clone could take over as the new Tobias Reiper and I would be perfectly ok with that. Executed properly though? I wouldnt just be ok with it. I’d be very happy.
