Stephen Lang will be the "Darth Vader" of the Avatar sequels

Good news, every actor who's cast in James Cameron's Avatar universe — you no longer have to fear death. Everyone who died in the first movie is apparently coming back for the second!

Cameron has already hinted that he's bringing back Sigourney Weaver for Avatar 2, and now he wants Stephen Lang back as well. We guess all the dead people are getting resurrected for the sequel. Get ready, Michelle Rodriguez!

Over at Deadline Cameron is using the old "it's science fiction!" excuse for his inability to come up with new characters:

“I’m not going to say exactly HOW we’re bringing him back, but it’s a science fiction story, after all. His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga. I really look forward to working with such a gifted actor, who’s also become a good friend.”

Deadline then compares this character to Darth Vader, hinting that he's not going anywhere, anytime soon. Fingers crossed he still has his GIANT ROBOT KNIFE.
