Although there has been much fan speculation already, it hasn't been confirmed until today who Johann Urb will play in Resident Evil: Retribution. It was known that his character is the "leader of a resistance group that unites with Jovovich's Alice to fight Umbrella." Today, however, Milla Jovovich used her Twitter account to confirm that Urb is, in fact, Leon Kennedy. "Looks just like him BTW!!" she writes. We agree. What do you think?
In the games, Leon Kennedy was part of the Raccoon City Police before certain events propelled him to be part of an underground anti-Umbrella organization.
