AVATAR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
There was a time wherein death held at least a modicum of finality. But thanks to movies, and of course comic books, death is merely a temporary setback. Case in point, Deadline is reporting that will be returning for 's Avatar 2. As a matter of fact, Lang will be reprising his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch for the next three films in the franchise. Those of you who you saw Avatar may be wondering how this is possible considering Quaritch's demise. Well here's The King of the World himself to shed some light on the situation...
“[Stephen] was so memorable in the first film, we’re privileged to have him back. 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.”
Really? Now we're bringing characters back from the dead? Were the overbearing CG environments not enough to disconnect the audience from anything substantial? Now even the deaths in the franchise aren't real? Also, was Quaritch really so amazing a character that audiences were clamoring for his return in these sequels? Isn't he basically a rehash of the commanding officer of the Space Marines in Aliens the same way that 's character was a recycled version of 's Burke? Not to mention the fact that Cameron making decisions based on who his friends are and not what services the story is a woefully bad sign.
What do you guys think?
