The movie certainly wasn’t a dark horse.
Avatar comics are on the way thanks to James Cameron and Dark Horse Comics! This news comes straight from their New York Comic Con panel where they announced a 10 year partnership to bring Avatar to life in the world of comics.
“I’m excited that starting now, even before the release of the first sequel, Dark Horse Comics will be bringing you new adventures from Pandora,” said Cameron. “Covering the time before, during, and after the events of the original Avatar film. For the past 27 years, Dark Horse has been associated with my films The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss. Now they’re working directly with me and our team at Lightstorm in an unprecedented ten-year partnership that’s going to create new stories that will take you deeper into the world of Avatar.” Exciting!

We think a comic book series will allow a greater look into Pandora and the wonderful creatures that can be found within. Avatar is of course the largest grossing movie of all time, funneling in over $2.7 billion in the Worldwide Box Office. There are plans for another 3 Avatar instalments: the first sequel is due December 2017, the second sequel is due December 2018 and the third and final sequel is due December 2019!
Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver are all expected to return to Avatar to help create a franchise that will rival Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. What do you think about an Avatar comic book series? Let us know in the comments below!
