AVATAR 2 CREDITS
AVATAR 2 CAST
Colonel Miles Quatrich
Way back in 2013, director James Cameron made the surprising revelation that Avatar star Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Quaritch, despite seemingly dying in the original blockbuster.
Since then, the filmmaker has expanded his massive franchise from three sequels to four, with Avatar 2's release pushed one full year to Christmas 2018.
While these sequels appear to be constantly evolving, Stephen Lang revealed that James Cameron is still planning on bringing this character back for all four sequels.
During his interview from 2013, James Cameron wouldn't exactly say how Quaritch would be back, only teasing that this sequel is "a sci-fi story," hinting there are any number of ways he could be resurrected.
The filmmaker also teased that his characters will "evolve into unexpected places" over the course of this franchise, but those statements were over three years ago.
During an interview with Mashable, Stephen Lang made it clear that Quaritch is here to stay.
Will we ever really get to see an Avatar sequel in our lifetime? That notion gets further and further away every time James Cameron publicly talks about the proposition of farthing this franchise.
The acclaimed director is currently giving a presentation at CinameCon in Las Vegas as part of the 20th Century Fox panel.
And it was here that he officially confirmed Avatar 2 is being delayed from its originally intended December 2017 release date to December 2018.
Though there was no mention on whether or not the movie is still set to start shooting this spring.
But it's not all bad news.
There will be even more Avatar movies in the future.
Yes, as was discussed by James Cameron in a previous interview, the possibility of Avatar expanding to four sequels from the previously announced three is becoming a reality.
At CinemaCon, the filmmaker officially announced Avatar 5.
This news comes along with new release dates for all four movies.
These will be Christmas releases, with the aforementioned 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.
The director stated the following, according to Deadline, who were on the scene.
