Stephen Lang Talks Avatar Sequels

Stephen Lang Talks Avatar Sequels

Avatar’s Colonel Miles Quaritch remains one of the better villains of the last decade, so it was a little disheartening to see his unceremoniously killed off in the first film. Well, as it turns out, fans will get to see plenty more of the dastardly military genius in James Cameron’s upcoming sequels, which, apparently, was the plan right from the get go, according to Stephen Lang.

“Jim indicated to me years ago, before filming on ‘Avatar’ was completed, that Quaritch had a future,” Lang told Deadline“I might have taken that with a grain of salt at the time because we’d had a few beers. Shortly after ‘Avatar’ opened Jim mentioned again that the Colonel was coming back, and by then I knew Jim well enough to know that he means what he says and he says what he means.”

This jibes with Cameron’s comments from 2017 in which he stated: “There’s not a new villain every time, which is interesting. Same guy. Same motherf*cker through all four [planned] movies. He is so good and he just gets better. I know Stephen Lang is gonna knock this out of the park.”

Is it possible to make one villain interesting over the course of potentially five movies? Looks like we’re about to find out.

Although Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 will only be released with director James Cameron’s caveat that Avatar 2 and 3 are successful at the box office.
