AVATAR Star Stephen Lang Finally Reveals How His Villain Is Resurrected In AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER

Avatar star Stephen Lang has finally addressed his surprise return as the evil Quaritch in Avatar: The Way of Water, offering an explanation for how the character rises from the dead after being shot down.

Stephen Lang's Quaritch made one heck of an impact as Avatar's lead villain, and he'd eventually get what he deserved after being shot through the chest with an arrow by Zoe Saldana's Neytiri. As deaths go, it was a pretty definitive one, but the RDA baddie is somehow set to rise from the dead in Avatar: The Way of Water later this month.

We've known that to be the case for a while, of course, with reports the actor would play a different character soon debunked when it was confirmed he would reprise his role from the record-breaking 2009 blockbuster. 

After months of speculation about how Quaritch could possibly return, we finally have an answer courtesy of Lang himself. "He's a genetically-engineered autonomous avatar," the actor tells Empire Online (via SFFGazette.com). "He has been downloaded with the mind, the emotions, and even more interestingly, possibly the spirit of Quaritch."

"Now, that's all pretty esoteric stuff. He comes with a full memory bank up until the time he actually undergoes the DNA transfer. So there are certain things that he doesn't have any memory of at all. He has no memory of his death."

It sounds like Quaritch will be among the sequel's resurrected soldiers known as the Recombinants, with Quaritch seemingly set to lead a squad of them against the peaceful Na'vi. 

However, with no memory of his death - and possibly everything we saw from him in Avatar - could this version of the character have a slightly less sinister view of Pandora? We're not banking on it, and would put money on him being out for revenge against those he probably knows put an end to his time as a human. 

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, the sequel begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive,  and the tragedies they endure.

Avatar: The Way of Water splashes down in theaters worldwide on December 16.
