It’s become a running joke by now: they set a date for Avatar 2 and then, after months (or years!) of nothing, it gets delayed. The sequel to the highest grossing film of all time was originally supposed to arrive in 2014…and then it was pushed back to 2016…and then it was pushed back to 2018. So when writer/director James Cameron revealed that the film wasn’t going to meet that last date, no one even blinked. Of course Avatar 2 wasn’t going to be released next year!
Because it’s going to be released in three years. Production has officially begun on the four sequels to the 2009 original, with the first movie now due out in 2020.

By the time the Avatar 2 hits theaters in 2018 — if it does hit theaters in 2018 — it’ll have been nine years since the first Avatar opened. But Sigourney Weaver seems pretty confident it’ll be worth the wait. The actress gushed about James Cameron‘s scripts for Avatars 2 through 4 in an interview, describing them as “much more amazing” than the original.
While we wait and see how that pans out, though, we can definitely expect to see her in next year’s The Defenders. We’re just not sure as whom. Weaver isn’t naming any names yet, but she did talk a bit about her villain character in the Marvel Netflix series. Read the Sigourney Weaver Avatar sequels comments and Defenders comments below.

Avatar 2 is supposed to hit theaters around Christmas 2018, followed by Avatar 3 in 2020, Avatar 4 in 2022, and Avatar 5 in 2023, all around the winter holiday. However, there’s no guarantee that director James Cameron will finish the movies in time to fit that schedule, especially since Avatar 2 has been pushed back for a few years ago, and one hopeful advancement in technology could be the culprit.
While accepting his admission as a member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, James Cameron briefly discussed the Avatar sequels, and he hopes that they’ll be able to utilize glasses-free 3D at some point. Read More »
