Ten years ago, Avatar revolutionized science fiction. Since Marvel won, but James Cameron plans to come back soon!
If Marvel films dominate cinema today, it was Avatar who revolutionized science fiction in 2008. Twelve years later, James Cameron is still preparing the return of his blue heroes. But he’s ready to dethrone Avengers!
Long the most profitable film in history, Avatar no longer reigns supreme over the box office today. He was indeed dethroned by the last installment of Avengers, the aptly named Endgame. James Cameron didn’t like it! The director is already preparing his revenge. It is not a suite but four that he is preparing. Avatar 2 should come out in 2021 and fight to avenge the first part.
At the time, Avatar had dethroned another James Cameron film, Titanic. So it stayed in the family! The reign of the all-blue movie ended on April 24, 2019 when Avengers: Endgame was released. The Marvel film then earned $ 2.79 billion at the box office. Avatar had peaked at $ 2.78 billion in revenue. It didn’t go far!
WITH AVATAR, JAMES CAMERON SEES BLUE!
If James Cameron has never hidden having appreciated Avengers Endgame, he indeed wants to defend Avatar. What he did with class: “Let’s give Endgame its time and celebrate the fact that people go to the movies,” he said. “I don’t want to look haughty, but they beat us by a quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving this morning. I think the accountants call it a rounding error, “he said. The loss of his title therefore seems to have marked him.
If you do the math right, Marvel’s victory is not that slim. There is indeed almost $ 8 million difference between the revenues of the two blockbusters. It remains only for James Cameron to direct four exceptional Avatar films to dethrone Avengers. The first sequel should be released in 2021. Avatar 3, 4 and 5 will be released in 2023, 2025 and 2027.
