Schwarzenegger for Avatar Villain?

Plus 4th film!

There has been some new news on the Avatar front from Collider.com (via Latino Review). First and foremost, James Cameron has announced that there will a fourth Avatar film and it will be a prequel. Which is something I thought might happen. It just seemed a little to convenient for me that Jake (Sam Worthington) was a twin brother, who just happened to be a Marine. I always thought Colonel Quaritch (Stephen Lang) had something to do with his brother’s death. 

The other big news/ rumor is that James Cameron wants long time collaborator Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the new bad guy in the film. This re-teaming makes sense, but doesn’t really fit into the world that James Cameron has created. If anyone can get a great performance out of Schwarzenegger, it is Cameron. We have months if not years to see how this all pans out. 

Avatar 2, Avatar 3, and the prequel Avatar 4 start shooting simultaneously in 2014 with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana returning.  

Avatar 2 is scheduled for December 2016 release.

I like the idea myself...I'm not sure what route they are taking with the next few avatar movies but if military is involved, Arnie would make a great bad guy if he were like a general or maybe even some off the charts rogue soldier hell bent on, whatever...

Guys talking about a 4th film when he hasn't even made 2 or 3.  And at the rate he makes movies he'll be like 125 years old when it comes out.

 ""Avatar 2, Avatar 3, and the prequel Avatar 4 simultaneously in 2014 with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana returning.

I'm.... confused.  So Avatar 3 and 4 in 2014 and Avatar 2 in 2016?..  Does someone fail at numbers?

 Sorry Makabriel, I fixed it. They start shooting....

Heck yeah... Arnie AND Cameron became World famous with Arnie playing a bad guy.

I think as long as he doesn't do the tongue in cheek humor like he does in the Expendables role and his other recent roles, it could be really cool - take it seriously... Heck, maybe Arnie's character is a crooked politician!

 Ahh, that makes sense now, hehe.  I didn't even think to read it like that.

Thanks RT!

 I enjoyed Avatar, but this just seems like overkill.  I don't want to see this run into the ground like the Pirates series...

 Ffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuucccccckkkkkk yessssssss!!!!!!!

I just hope Arnie as a villain is the high quality Terminator type and not the Mr. Freeze type.  With Cameron behind the wheel, I am going with the former.

Avatar 2 should kick some ice...

I guess Jimmy Cam figured he'd better get that prequel filmed at the same time or else Arnie might keel over before the movie gets filmed.
