[U.K.], August 10 (ANI): It seems like Col. Miles Quaritch is all set to return to the magical world of Pandora.

According to The Independent, James Cameron has confirmed that Stephen Lang will reprise the role as the chief villain of 'Avatar' across its forthcoming sequels.

In an interview, the director revealed that the character Colonel Miles Quaritch will return to torment the Navi again in all four of the series' new films despite seeming to perish at the climax of number one.

He said, "But it's not a whole bunch of new characters every time. There's not a new villain every time, which is interesting. Same guy. Same motherf***er through all four movies. He is so good and he just gets better. I know Stephen Lang is gonna knock this out of the park."

The 'Titanic' helmer also noted that there are a lot of new settings and creatures in the movie, so I'm taking characters that people know and putting them in unfamiliar places and moving them on this greater journey.

Lang's return as the chief bad guy, who Cameron has previously compared to 'Star Wars' villain Darth Vader, is perhaps unsurprising considering Sigourney Weaver is returning for the sequels despite her character Dr Grace Augustine dying in the 2009 blockbuster.

The release dates of all four of Cameron's 'Avatar' sequels have finally been firmed up with the first sequel arriving on December 18 2020. (ANI)
