James Cameron is a director who faced a variety of barricades before he climbed his way to the top. His work from Terminator which features Arnold Swarchznegger, to Titanic proved to critics he didn’t rely on visual effects to make a film successful to Avatar which stood its test of time in being the highest-grossing film since 2009. Now he has been spotted working on Avatar: The Way Of Water which is said to release on the 16th of December, 2022.
Will Avatar: The Way Of Water live up to its predecessor?
When Avatar overtook Titanic in 2010, it first rose to the position of the best-selling global release of all time. The title was won in 2019 by Avengers: Endgame, which earned $2.797 billion at the box office. Avatar’s box office earnings as of Saturday exceeded $2.802 billion, enabling it to reclaim its title.
Many believe this to be the case as James Cameron was the director. The possibility of another director working on the franchise leaves the question of its success hanging in the air. Needless to say, the sequel’s release will let us know if the success of the franchise would be long-lasting or not.
Avatar to claim a new director after its third movie in the franchise
However, the news for the film does not end there. We got confirmation that Avatar would not just be getting a sequel, but four movies in total. The sequel Avatar: The Way Of Water is already in its final stages of production and has a trailer for it as well. This leads James Cameron, the director of Avatar: The Way Of Water to mention his role in the next movies in the franchise.

Maybe it’s taking a physical toll on him. He’s 67 years old!

Will Zack Snyder respond to his fans vouching for his attention to the last two films of Avatar? Or will there be another director that would be designated to the franchise? Either way, James Cameron has made a remarkable stamp in film history with the franchise and his absence in the last two films might give the same opportunity to whoever comes in next.
