I feel like there are a lot of people out there who went into Avatar expecting it to be something more. What that something is, I don't really know. But from diehard fans - people who love Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, True Lies - I know a lot of people said it felt light in its thrills compared to his previous output.
So, because of all that, you may be one of those people who's unsure about why we need Avatar 2, Avatar 3, and Avatar 4. That's a lot of high-tech mo-cap work to spread across three movies. For those on the fence, Latino Review recently posted a bit of news that might make you reconsider Avatar as the mega franchise that it is.
They're reporting from "top level sources" the bad guy in the first sequel will be none other than the man who infamously played the T-800:
Christmas came early! The former Gov-uh-nah of California, Mr. , will reportedly join Cameron for the first time in almost 20 years. He'll play an evil human general who comes to Pandora after Earth's forces were decimated by the Na'vi in the first film.
