Is Stephen Lang Getting His Own Avatar in The Way of Water?

Stephen Lang had played the primary antagonist Colonel Quaritch in the first Avatar movie, and though the character died, Lang still found himself cast in the sequel The Way of Water. What’s odd is, there could be an explanation of how he survives—he gets his own Na’Vi avatar.

On Twitter, Lang shared a poster featuring what could be Quaritch’s avatar body. Check this out:

Some speculate that this could be a completely new character, but it would be interesting if they found a way to bring Quaritch back—and this time actually have him in Jake’s shoes navigating his own alien body.

Based on the first film, we know that there are methods where humans can permanently transfer their consciousness into their avatars. Though the process didn’t work for Sigourney Weaver, it did work for protagonist Jake Sully, and he was even able to have children with Neytiri.

We don’t know what kind of arc Quaritch is supposed to have with an avatar body, but maybe we could see a dark mirror of what Jake’s character could have been should he have just stuck to the mission and not have understood the ways of the Na’Vi.

A lot of fans may be trashing on Avatar for being a ‘forgettable’ movie after so long, but based on the new trailers, I think James Cameron has upped the ante when it comes to the visuals of the sequel. Everything looks stunning, and I can’t wait to jump back into the world.

Avatar: The Way of Water comes to theaters on Dec. 16.
