As great as Agent Smith was as the antithesis of the One, the rogue computer program has had his day. He's assimilated the entire population of the Matrix, played God and actually kills Neo (albeit, after he realises he needs to die to destroy Smith). One can only hope that Hugo Weaving's excellent portrayal of the out-of-control metaphor for a computer virus goes down in cinema history as one of the greatest villains ever, but that won't happen if the Wachowski siblings decide to 'resurrect' the character if they pen a new series. It would be much more interesting to see the machine or program responsible for the creation of the Agents come to the forefront. We know the men in black were created as silent overseers of the human race within the Matrix itself, but who created them and who did they take orders from? Depending on how back a prequel film would be set, we could even be privy to the process of how the first program for the Agents was written. Most importantly of all though, do Agents actually have individual personalities and agendas? Smith is seen to have some rather human-like emotions when he's interrogating a captured Morpheus which suggests that they do. However, at what point Smith's function as a virus is established is unclear so he could be the exception.
