James Cameron Is Tired of Avengers Movies

But Cameron may just be exhausted of the constant flow of Hollywood films that rely heavily on CGI and ever-expanding cinematic universes, which is understandable.

Titanic/Avatar/Terminator/Aliens director and all-around cinematic icon James Cameron expressed some light dissatisfaction with giant superhero franchises while promoting his new docuseries AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction.

James Cameron is speaking more cautiously about the four sequels to Avatar, according to a Reuters report published tonight.

The director also told reporters that he has not started any work on the fourth and fifth Avatar films, even though he knows his story will not end until a fifth film.

Cameron's six-part Story of Science Fiction will premiere on April 30. Now that Marvel has established themselves as virtually bullet-proof at the box office, they are taking creative risks and telling more diverse stories, as seen with Taika Waititi's delightful Thor: Ragnarok and the pop culture domination of Black Panther.

Cameron, now working on the next four movies in the Avatar franchise, had some thoughts on the popularity of superhero movies and Marvel's box office domination. "Nobody knows until you make the movie and put it out". However, the commercial component of the shooting forces him to be limited so far, only two movies will be released in mid-2020.

Cameron said he was about 100 days into filming the second and third Avatar installments under a deal with 21st Century Fox.

The filmmaker said about the plot the plot of future episodes that it will remind of a good family chronicle with a dynamic plot. "It becomes a very different story". Its a generational family saga.

"There's still the same setting and the same respect for the 'shock of the new, '" Cameron continued. Its a continuation of the same characters, but what happen when warriors that are willing to go on suicide charges, and leap off cliffs on to the back of big orange toruks, what happens when they grow up and have their own kids? But the story's very different.
