We are still almost two and half years away from Avatar 2, the sequel to the highest grossing film of all-time directed by James Cameron. That’ll be a decade after the first movie but the train to Pandora isn’t stopping anytime soon as there are three more sequels besides Avatar 2 upcoming. We’re getting more news now as Cameron confirmed in an interview with Empire, that Stephen Lang will return for ALL of the sequels reprising his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch.
“The interesting conceit of the Avatar sequels is it’s pretty much the same characters. There are new characters and a lot of new settings and creatures, so I’m taking characters you know and putting them in unfamiliar places and moving them on this greater journey. But it’s not a whole bunch of new characters every time. There’s not a new villain every time, which is interesting. Same guy. Same motherfucker through all four movies. He is so good and he just gets better. I know Stephen Lang is gonna knock this out of the park.”
It’s reassuring that we’ll see new settings and characters for the movies but I’m also glad that Lang will be returning as I thought he was brilliant in the original movie from 2009. I think this is such an ambitious thing for Cameron to do to have 4 more Avatar movies from 2020-2025 but as we’ve learned before, it’s hard to bet against the director of the two highest-grossing movies of all-time.
What do you guys think about hearing that Stephen Lang will return for all of the Avatar sequels? Do you even want to see more from Pandora? Let us know in the comment section!
