James Cameron intends on keeping us involved with his rich world of "Avatar" for many years to come. While the plot details have been thin for the next installment, which is certainly not why his first film captivated audiences anyway, we did learn that his intended trilogy was adding another film. Now we have confirmation from Cameron about a key character that is returning.

Stephen Lang, who portrayed the tough-as-nails Colonel Miles Quaritch in the first film, will be seen not only in the sequel, but the next three films.

On Lang reprising his role, Cameron stated, "Steven was so memorable in the first film, we’re privileged to have him back. I’m not going to say exactly how we’re bringing him back, but it’s a science fiction story, after all. His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga. I really look forward to working with such a gifted actor, who’s also become a good friend."

Are you glad Lang is returning to the franchise? Let us know in the comments section below!

    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.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
