Surprise in the “Avatar 2” trailer: Is that the dead villain from Part 1?

It has long been known that “Avatar” villain Miles Quaritch is also in “Avatar 2: The Way Of Water”, although the character played by Stephen Lang actually died in part 1. The trailer now offers the explanation for the Quaritch comeback.

The first trailer for “Avatar 2” doesn’t reveal much yet, but thanks to the preview, one important question has already been answered: How is it that villain Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang) is back when he actually dies in “Avatar”? The answer: The ruthless colonel has apparently become an avatar himself.

The eponymous avatars in the highest-grossing film of all time are artificial beings created from human and Na’vi DNA that can be controlled by a human whose DNA they have. And you can see that from the fact that humans and avatar bodies have a certain resemblance.

Quaritch is now an avatar

In the trailer for “Avatar 2: The Way Of Water” two Na’vi can now be seen at several points, who appear to be interacting with humans and wear human clothing and weapons. However, these are not real Na’vi, they are avatars – and one of the avatars is almost certainly Quaritch’s.

You can see that not only in the bird tattoo on the left upper arm, which Quaritch also wore in his human form (and that he apparently also had his avatar body stabbed). In a later scene, you can also see Quaritch’s facial features or by actor Stephen Lang in the avatar:


Clearly recognizable by the facial features and the tattoo: This is Miles Quaritch as an avatar!

In “Avatar” Quaritch was pierced by two huge arrows and seemingly died, although it is possible that the mortally wounded Quaritch was rescued by his comrades at the last second – and then suffered a fate similar to his antagonist Jake (Sam Worthington), whose spirit was permanently transferred into his avatar body at the end of the film.

Protagonist Jake Sully and antagonist Miles Quaritch would be more like two sides of the same coin than ever before, and there’s bound to be another confrontation between the two characters – only now they’re both in an avatar body.

A precise explanation for Quaritch’s new existence as an avatar should then be “Avatar: The Way Of Water“, which will be released in German cinemas on December 14, 2022.
