During an interview granted to Deadline, Stephen Lang anticipated some unpublished details about his character for how it will appear in Avatar 2, a sequel that will arrive more than ten years after the planetary success of the original.
Lang revealed in the interview that James Cameron had already told him the fate of his character and that he would surely return in the future: ” Jim told me years ago before the filming of the first Avatar was completed, that Quaritch would have a future I may have grabbed him at the time because we had a few beers. Immediately after the release of Avatar, Jim again mentioned that the Colonel would be back and by then I knew Jim well enough to know that he really believed in what he was. saying and saying what he believed in. “
The return of Lang and Colonel Quaritch had already been anticipated by Cameron himself previously, who had indicated him as the main villain of the new sequels of the franchise: ” It’s not that there will be a new villain every time and this thing seems interesting to me “It will be the same. The same son of a bitch for all four scheduled films. He’s so perfect and he’s getting better and better as a villain. I know for sure that Stephen Lang will show it to everyone .”
More recent is instead the statements of the same Cameron about the possibility of Avatar 2 to surpass the proceeds of Avengers: Endgame, which in turn broke the world record of collections of the previous Avatar. ” I think that’s a certainty,” Cameron told USA Today. “But let’s give Endgame its moment and celebrate the fact that people are still going to the cinema. I don’t want to sound presumptuous after congratulating them. But they really beat us a little. This morning I did the math in my head while I was driving. I think the accountants call it rounding error. “
The director will have the opportunity to focus on Endgame’s takings from December 2021, when the second chapter of the sci-fi saga will be released in cinemas all over the world. The other sequels will arrive instead in 2023, 2025 and 2027. Unfortunately, however, to see the trailer of Avatar 2 there will be a long wait.
