Avatar‘s C. C. H. Pounder is returning to the expanding cast of James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels.
Deadline has confirmed that Pounder will be returning to portray Mo’at, the Na’vi shamaness, in the four Avatar sequels. When last we saw Mo’at, she was seen moving the consciousness of Jake Sully from his human body into his Avatar, permanently turning him into his human-alien hybrid form as was his will. How she’ll be important for four other movies (said to be four unrelated standalones that collectively form a greater saga between the relationship between the human and Na’vi species) will be unclear at this time, but given her role in the first one, it’s likely that she’ll be there to help explain the spirituality of the Na’vi species.
The movies will finally start filming in Autumn of this year and will be released over the course of the 2020s. Just to put the long wait between the Avatar sequels into context, by the time Avatar 2 is finally released, the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy will have been announced and completed with 2-3 spin-offs released, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have completed 3 Phases and will begin work on what comes after that, Spider-Man will have been rebooted twice, the DC Extended Universe will have released several films, the Harry Potter franchise will have finished and moved on to Fantastic Beasts spin-offs, and The Fast and the Furious will have exponentially grown in popularity, just to name a few. The James Cameron sequel certainly has a lot to live up to.
Four Avatar sequels are planned for release in the Decembers of 2020, 2021, 2024, and 2025. Avatar 2‘s cast includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, C. C. H. Pounder, and newcomers Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin.
10 Cosmic Heroes We Want To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’
It’s official: James Gunn has confirmed that that he will be returning to both write and direct the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is just phenomenal news. Gunn has created something really special with these films. He took third-tier (at best) comic book characters that most fans didn’t yet know they needed to love and turned their story into not one, but two blockbuster movies that are major hits, both critically (Vol. 2 is getting mostly positive buzz on social media following press screenings) and financially (the sequel’s currently tracking at about $150 million for its opening weekend).
In his Facebook post, Gunn stated that Guardians Vol. 3 will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” He also made a brief mention of “some of the other forthcoming heroes” that could be appearing in the series. With these things in mind, we thought it would be a wonderful idea to explore some of the cosmic Marvel characters that fans might like to see in the third installment.
Before we jump in, a couple caveats. While it would surely be a lot of fun to see some of the Earthbound MCU characters mixing it up with the team in space, this list is only going to feature cosmic-based Marvel characters. The film will hit theaters after the Guardians’ introduction to Tony and Cap and the gang in Avengers: Infinity War, so we may still see that happen anyway. Also, I’m sure there are plenty of fantastic cosmic villains that would be great fits to antagonize the team in the third film, but we’re only focusing on the good guys in this list. Also, as amazing as it would be to see Silver Surfer or Galactus in the MCU, we’re not including anyone that Marvel doesn’t currently own the rights to, so don’t expect to see Agent Venom or Kitty Pryde or any of the other non-MCU characters that have served on the team in the comics on this list either. Also, it should be noted that I have not yet seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if any of these characters do appear, my apologies for the wasted entry.
Now, without further adieu, here are the 10 cosmic Marvel heroes we want to see in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
