"The Avatar series recently expanded to a quadrilogy plus four novels. First things first: Avatar 2 is scheduled for December 2016, but it’s never too early to throw ourselves headfirst into the gray ether of the rumor mill. Sources tell Latino Review that Arnold Schwarzenegger will play a “bad guy human general.” It makes enough sense. Schwarzenegger and Cameron made Terminator, Terminator 2, and True Lies together, and could be looking to reunite. The evil military man follows from Stephen Lang‘s villain in the first movie, Colonel Quaritch. Schwarzenegger’s may be the right actor to portray the escalating human threat.
Yet it feels like a stretch. Cameron built an immersive fantasy universe in Avatar free from distracting big-name stars (all due respect to Sigourney Weaver). Casting Schwarzenegger takes the sequels in a different direction. I trust Cameron, so if he wants to cast Schwarzenegger, I can’t wait to see how he does it. In three years. We’ll keep you busy with plenty more rumors in the next 39 months."
Let us know what you think in the comments, is the possibility of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger working together again exciting no matter what kind of movie it might be or is it wasted on something like Avatar?
