EDIT: 24 The Movie has been postponed for now. 24 Season 9 Live Another Day will air in 2014/15.
Tony Alemida (Carlos Bernard) is many 24 fan’s favourite character. Helping Jack stop terrorist threats since Season 1 we’ve seen his character develop from a loyal side kick to a vigilante hell bent on getting revenge for the death of his wife Michelle Dessler. Since 24 The Movie was confirmed a lot of fans have hoped that Tony can make an appearance.
What happened to Tony at end of season 7?
In Season 7 Tony was found to be very much alive, despite Christopher Henderson seemingly killing him, and is working under cover with Bill and Chloe. In a double twist though Tony kills FBI agent Larry Moss and plans to use Jack’s infected body to harvest a virus. All along though, Tony’s real motives are to get close to [and kill] Alan Wilson, the man responsible for Michelle’s death (and David Palmer’s).
As Tony gets close to revenge though he is shot and arrested by Jack and Renee.
Will Tony be in the movie?
Tony killed an FBI agent in Season 7 and did some other nasty stuff off between seasons 5 and 7 so if he does make an appearance he’ll probably be doing so from the inside of a cell. 24 has a history of letting villains make bargains where they are exonerated for past or future crimes so it’s possibly that Tony is a free man, though doubtful.
A movie version of 24 will most probably want to appeal to new fans as well as old ones so bringing back previous characters, other than Jack, may not be on top of a script writers priorities.
