It was just this past April that blockbuster alchemist James Cameron made the promise/threat of four sequels to his massively lucrative sci-fi fantasy Avatar. Having apparently calculated “eight years or so” as the optimal amount of time to let Avatar fever percolate before reaching a boiling point, the filmmaker hinted at plans for his follow-up(s) while accepting his honorary membership into the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers on Friday night. Indiewire reports that while entering an elite group of industry professionals devoted to expanding the technological reach of film, Cameron stated his intentions to bring Avatar even further into the future with groundbreaking techniques and equipment.

Mahershala Ali might have caught the villain bug. Currently he plays Cottonmouth, the powerful and terrifying bad guy featured in the first season of Netflix and Marvel’s Luke Cage, and soon he might appear as another villain type in James Cameron’s live-action adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel.

At this point, it might be more interesting if James Cameron’s Avatar sequels never come to fruition — like maybe this is his most elaborate project of all, a practical joke that spans years or even decades. That doesn’t seem to be the case, as Cameron’s ambitious plans have only grown more so, swelling to four sequels that he plans to release, well, eventually. Movie magic takes time, people. But for now, Cameron has some new plot details to support the bold claim that he’s making three more installments in the franchise.

James Cameron originally intended to direct Alita: Battle Angel himself, but a few years and plans for four more Avatar sequels later, and the director is just a bit too busy to helm the manga adaptation himself. As announced last year, Robert Rodriguez will now direct the project with Cameron executive producing, and it looks like things are picking up as a few talented young women are being eyed for the leading role.
