Stephen Lang signs up for Avatar sequels
James Cameron confirms that Stephen Lang will be appearing in Avatar 2, 3 and 4...
This story contains a spoiler for the first Avatar movie.
One of the main characters of James Cameron's 2009 juggernaut Avatar was Colonel Miles Quaritch, as played by Stephen Lang. As the antagonist in the film, he notched up a solid amount of screen time, and firmly established himself as someone you wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of.
Well, up until he died anyway. That said, in the world of Avatar, a character death is no firewall to future involvement. And James Cameron has revealed that Stephen Lang won't just be back for Avatar 2, he'll be back for Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 as well.
Cameron said that "I’m not going to say exactly how we’re bringing him back, but it’s a science fiction story, after all. His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga. I really look forward to working with such a gifted actor, who’s also become a good friend".
