While doing the publicity rounds for her latest film, Abduction, Weaver discussed the possibility of her returning for the second and third film Avatar film that director James Cameron is planning, despite her character having died in the first film.
Speaking with Collider, Weaver stated that she would definitely be back for the sequels –
We’re going to do two more, back-to-back… You saw something happen to me, but as [Cameron] says, “In science fiction, no one ever dies.” But, we’ll talk another time about that.
Personally, I don’t think that there was ever going to be any question about Weaver’s return to Avatar‘s planet Pandora given the circumstances surrounding her character’s “demise.” I can certainly see a couple of avenues in which they can bring her back.
Avatar 2 and 3 should be out somewhere between 2013 and 2015.
