Now the next target for the Avatar sequel is Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home ($1.916 billion).
Meanwhile, James Cameron recently made a revelation stating that Avatar 2 had 10 minutes of too much violence, which eventually got trimmed.
“I actually cut about 10 minutes of the movie targeting gunplay action. I wanted to get rid of some of the ugliness, to find a balance between light and dark. You have to have conflict, of course. Violence and action are the same thing, depending on how you look at it. This is the dilemma of every action filmmaker, and I’m known as an action filmmaker,” Cameron told Variety.
