Avatar 2 will bring back most of the big names in the cast who appeared in 2009’s Avatar. This, of course, includes stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana as Jake Sully and Neytiri, respectively. In a somewhat strange turn of events, Stephen Lang will also reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, who appears to have died at the end of the first Avatar. James Cameron has even confirmed that the character will be the main antagonist for the sequel films (per Empire).
Lang’s character isn’t the only one to come back from the dead either, as Matt Gerald’s Corporal Lyle Wainfleet will also appear in Avatar 2. Sigourney Weaver is also making a comeback, although it’s a mystery who she’ll portray. Other recurring stars include CCH Pounder as Mo’at, Giovanni Ribisi as Parker Selfridge, and Dileep Rao as Dr. Max Patel. Among the new additions is Titanic and Mare of Easttown star Kate Winslet.
It will be interesting to see how these characters rejoin – or join – the herd.
