While some in geekdom prefer to look at the Disney/Fox acquisition purely for what it means for Marvel-related properties, other franchises could be in jeopardy under the House of Mouse. Case in point, James Cameron’s Avatar franchise.
Come this December, it will have been 10 years since the first Avatar film hit theaters. And while James Cameron has completed work on the second and third installments, the status on Avatar 4 and 5 remain up in the air. More to the point, the status of those films would depend on what Disney decides to do with the series. In addition, while Avatar 2 and 3 appear to be certain, it’s reported that Fox wanted to wait and see the box office results before giving the go-ahead to the fourth and fifth installments in the series.
Admittedly, this could still work in James Cameron’s favor, as the “Pandora- World of Avatar” theme park is already a part of Walt Disney Studios. Between how much money the first Avatar made at the box office and the fact that the House of Mouse loves money, it’s entirely possible that Disney could give James Cameron the green light for the continuation of his Avatar franchise. But like many things involved with the Disney/Fox merger, it’s all a matter of just waiting and seeing what continues and what gets chucked to the side.
Ultimately, though, what do you think Disney will do with the Avatar series once the Fox acquisition is complete? Do you think they will allow James Cameron to continue with the series? What are your hopes and expectations for the second and third entries in the series? And when do you think we’ll get a first trailer or teaser for Avatar 2? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Directed by James Cameron, Avatar 2 stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, CCH Pounder, Cliff Curtis, Britain Dalton, Kate Winslet, Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, David Thewlis. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".
What do you think of these new posters? Are you excited to see the King of the Monsters take the reins in this new sequel? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news from the MonsterVerse.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
