The sequel to Avatar is set to open seven years after its original planned release date in 2013, and the franchise has found its new lead character.

Cliff Curtis, best known for his work as Travis Manawa in AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, has signed on in the lead role for all four Avatar sequels, according to a report from Deadline. Curtis will star alongside returning actors Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver.

Although the sequel is still three years away, Curtis’ casting announcement does come with a little more information about what to expect. The actor will be playing the leader of the Metkayina people, a civilization that lives under the sea. Director James Cameron has said in the past that a large part of the sequel will take place under water.

Another tidbit of information that we can take from this announcement is that Curtis won’t compete with Worthington for the top dog spot. Instead, the two will split their time on screen as leaders of two completely different tribes.

Avatar 2 will now be released on Dec. 18, 2020. Avatar 5, the final installment in the franchise, will open on Dec. 19, 2025.

I was under the impression that these movies have been getting filmed for about 3-4 years already.. and they'd start releasing a new Avatar movie once a year. But they're still casting roles!? Wow. At this rate I won't even expect Avatar 2 to come out in 2020. Also, I haven't seen this actor in much besides Fear the Walking Dead. While hes probably the best actor in that show (thats not saying much honestly), I don't see him doing well as a lead in a major movie franchise like this.

I doubt that Avatar needed any sequels.

I can imagine them being set in the same universe.

But I just don't see how Pandora can continue being a place of interest.

I don't understand how future sequels would connect with the "Avatar" name. Unless humans are coming back to wage more war against the Navi using "avatars", there are no more avatars on the planet/moon. Since whatshisface transferred himself into his avatar, its now him and no longer considered an avatar. If its a movie about a bunch of blue aliens communing with nature with a bunch of fancy 3D IMAX effects, I don't think it would be nearly as popular as the original film.

      This is noticeably a marvel made Spider-Man movie and looks far superior to the previous movies Fox has made.

      So, went and saw that this weekend.  While I don't think it's as good as the Lego Movie, it's still really entertaining and worth seeing.  I loved the callbacks to all the previous Batmans, that was a nice touch.

      I thought I posted a trailer for this before but I can't find it. This movie looks amazing to me. I must watched this dubbed when it comes out.

      The first John Wick movie was great not just for the gun fights but because of how John Wick's reputation preceded him everywhere he went. He was a bad ass and everyone knew.. and then he'd show up and slaughter everyone like Brandon Heat in Gungrave in his sweeper days. This trailer looks good but I bet its not showing half of the action that will take place in the movie.
