James Cameron Confirms Leaked ‘Avatar’ Titles Are Real

James Cameron has confirmed those leaked Avatar titles which made their way onto the web last year are indeed real.

Documents obtained by BBC last fall revealed the possible titles for all four of the Avatar sequels which are in development. The titles included The Way of Water, The Seed Bearer, The Tulkun Rider, and The Quest for Eywa. While at the premiere for the long-in-development Alita: Battle Angel, which Cameron wrote and produced, the legendary director was asked whether or not the titles were real. Although Cameron remained tight-lipped at first, he opened up and revealed the titles are in fact being considered, however, they have yet to be made official:

“I can neither confirm nor deny… All right, here’s what I’ll tell ya. Those titles are among titles that are in consideration. And no final decisions have been made yet.”

What do you think if these are chosen to be the titles of the sequels? Share your thoughts below!

While James Cameron has completed production on the first of two Avatar sequels, uncertainty surrounds the possible fourth and fifth installments of the franchise due to the looming Disney-Fox merger. Although Fox previously planted flags on the release calendar for Avatar 4 and 5, the studios reportedly want to hold off greenlighting the films until seeing the for box office results for Avatar 2 and 3.

Plot details remain under wraps, however, the sequels will continue to bring the world of Pandora to life and expand Cameron’s vision they explore new locations on the planet not seen in the first film. The sequels are said to be four standalone experiences that will form together one epic saga that Cameron has spent the last several years writing.

The original Avatar received mostly positive reviews from critics and was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. It popularized 3D in cinemas and remains the top-grossing film at the global box office with $2.7B after becoming the first film to cross the $2 billion mark. The film was first released on December 18, 2009, followed by a subsequent release of a special edition on August 27, 2010.

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.

The additional three Avatar follow-ups were previously dated to release on December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024, and December 19, 2025.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
