Yeah, you read that right!
In the most recent issue of Empire, director James Cameron revealed that Stephen Lang's Colonel Quaritch will serve as the main villain in all the upcoming Avatar sequels.
This despite the fact that he's, well...dead.
"The interesting conceit of the Avatar sequels is it’s pretty much the same characters," he says. "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."
We've known for quite some time now that Lang would be returning to the Avatar sequels, however, we never could've guessed that he'd be back to menace the likes of Jake and the Na'vi as the primary baddie in four more movies! He did take some serious damage the last time we saw him after all!
