Cliff Curtis cast in prime role in all four Avatar sequels

Now that the AVATAR movies have finally set their release dates, and assuming they will hold like steel pillars this time, we can now move on to the nitty-gritty details of the movie. Casting is one of those details, and the sequels just added one new actor to join the returning gang.

News is that FEAR THE WALKING DEAD and TRAINING DAY’s Cliff Curtis has just been cast in all four AVATAR sequels. The actor is said to be playing a character named Tonowari, the leader of the Metkayina, a reef people clan on Pandora. No word yet on if this character is friend or foe, but given his casting in all four films chances are the role is substantial. He will be joining returning cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang.

We got word not too long ago that the first of the sequels will arrive on Dec. 18, 2020 with AVATAR 3 a year later on Dec. 17, 2021. Then there’s a three-year gap, with AVATAR 4 is set for Dec. 20, 2024, concluding with AVATAR 5 on Dec. 19, 2025.

These movies have been trying to get off the ground for years, with director James Cameron occasionally announcing the gift of a release date and then taking it away like a cruel stepfather. Now it seems to have all been settled, so I’m relieved to report more news that isn’t release date related. Curtis is a solid actor so it’s cool he’s getting such a big role in these massive movies. Only two-and-half years and we get to see what all the fuss is about. The fuss better be extraordinary.
