Stephen Lang Will Be The Main Villain In All The Avatar Sequels



In a recent interview with Empire, James Cameron explained that Stephen Lang’s Colonel Quartich, who died in the original film, will return in the sequels to Avatar and will be the main villain in all the follow-up films.

“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 motherf*cker 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.”

Director James Cameron has been hard at work on the sequels to Avatar. It has taken years and years to get the projects off the ground, mostly due to the limits of technology. It’s no secret that the first film revolutionised the cinema experience by being one of the best 3D films ever. Avatar 2 looks like it might do one better and offer glasses-free 3D.

Earlier this year, Cameron announced that Avatar will now have four sequels instead of three. These will all be Christmas releases, with Avatar 2 coming in 2018, Avatar 3 coming two years later in 2020, and then Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 arriving back-to-back in 2022 and 2023. We just hope the 61-year old director stays alive to complete the series. He’ll be around 70 by the time the final instalment releases.

Avatar 2 arrives December 18, 2020.

No idea. I guess he wasn’t really dead then? Dunno.

He deserves to be Cable more than Josh Brolin does

Guest

If he did he would be playing cable since he would have been allot cheaper than brolin.

Guest

I think he had to bow out because of the Avatar films. I think he was their first choice.

Guest

Good he’s by far the coolest character in that movie.
