7 Dead Movie Characters Returning Soon

6. Miles Quaritch

The Pandoran War of James Cameron's Avatar saw plentiful casualties on both sides, and one such casualty was that of Colonel Miles Quaritch.

A prick with a penchant for offing Na'vi, this Stephen Lang-played commander of the Resources Development Administration Security Operations finally got his comeuppance by the time that Cameron's revolutionary 2009 movie came to a close. Just as Quaritch was set to kill Jake Sully, Neytiri stepped in to fire two arrows into the chest of this hard-ass military sort and send him to the afterlife.

Cameron has long been an ambitious, forward-looking filmmaker, and thus it came as no surprise to hear him soon announce not one, not two, but three Avatar sequels shortly after that first film's release - and that news was later followed up by the reveal that an Avatar 5 was also in early development. What's maybe more of a surprise, however, is that Stephen Lang's deceased character of Miles Quaritch will be back for at least the first three follow-up pictures.

Granted, the lavish, unrestricted world of the Avatar franchise does mean that all bets are off and nothing is ever off the table when it comes to ideas and plot twists - and let's face it, any time Stephen Lang gets to devour scenery on the big screen is always a good time.
