Variety is reporting that Stephen Lang will return to the franchise in an Oct. 22 article.

Lang was on scene-stealingly excellent form in the first film as the evil Colonel Quaritch, although the character didn’t make it out of that film alive, having been killed in a mech battle.

James Cameron feels that death shouldn’t prevent the character from making another appearance as fans were already wondering how Sigourney Weaver was also going to return.

Weaver not only spoke about returning to the franchise but said in June of last year that three films were indeed coming and would be filmed at the same time.

Lang and Weaver may only appear in flashback, but given the franchise’s sci-fi setting, there’s no reason to think he won’t be resurrected by some sort of futuristic thematic device.

Filming is set to begin on the sequels in October 2014, with Avatar 2 expected to arrive in cinemas in December 2016, before further films in 2017 and 2018.
