Giovanni Ribisi, who played the head of the Resource Development Administration in Avatar, is returning for all four of James Cameron’s sequels.
Deadline is reporting that Ribisi will be the next of many actors from 2009’s Avatar – which is globally the highest-grossing movie of all time when left unadjusted for inflation – to make a return for the long-delayed Avatar 2 and its three planned follow-ups.
Ribisi’s character concerned himself with overseeing operations to extract Unobtanium – a rare resource that could help provide resources to a dying Earth. Unfortunately, his job was complicated when the man-made Avatars that were meant to ease diplomacy were more focused on going native, which led to a series of bad military decisions that ultimately resulted in the bulk of the human population being ousted from the planet. His character was largely presented as being neutral in the grand scheme of the conflict, but depending on how the story plays out, he could play for either team.
Avatar 2 will return audiences to Pandora on December 18, 2020. The movie’s cast sees the return of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, C. C. H. Pounder, Giovanni Ribisi, and Matt Gerald in their respective roles, and newcomers Cliff Curtis, Oona Chaplin, Britain Dalton, Duane Evans Jr., Filip Geljo, Jamie Flatters, Bailey Bass, Trinity Bliss, and Jack Champion joining the world of Pandora.
7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
