Zoe Saldana Chats Timeline for AVATAR 2 and AVATAR 3

It's been a bit quiet on the "Avatar" front for some time now. We heard that James Cameron was going to shoot some of the scenes underwater with motion-capture technology and that the next two installments would most likely be shot back-to-back. These initial details definitely kept us intrigued. Leave it to Cameron to always defy the technology that amazes us.

Zoe Saldana, the leading blue lady in "Avatar", gave us some more details today as to the timeline we might be able to expect for the 2nd and 3rd installments. She believes that the next two films will indeed be shot back-to-back since, "if we just do two and then wait, I’ll probably be 45 or 50 by the time we get to part three. It takes a long time, it’s a very hard process."

In November, Cameron revealed that he believed production would kick-off in late 2013. Saldana suggested that it looks like they will begin production in 2014, which definitely seems likely now, being that Summer is right around the corner.

While Cameron did not commit to release dates for either picture, it is believed that "Avatar 2" will release sometime in 2014 and that "Avatar 3" will release in 2015.

The details that Saldana discussed don't really contradict the previous information floating around the projects. It just gives us a bit more hope of not having to wait so long in between the release of each film, which is just fine by me.

What do you think of this "Avatar" news? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Avatar 2" is expected to hit AMC Theatres in 2014, with "Avatar 3" hitting in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
