Avatar could soon give us an Austrian accented Na’vi. Arnold Schwarzenegger has seemingly achieved it all, from being an actor to a politician to now lending his voice to the biggest Hollywood movie franchise. There were speculations of him joining the cast for years now, but 2026 is confirmed to drop Avatar 4 with him in it.
In a way, Schwarzenegger’s career with James Cameron will come full circle. His career began with Terminator, which was also directed by the Avatar director. So far, each of their projects together has proved to be a massive success. Here is how the years of wait is set to end with Schwarzenegger’s confirmation.
How Arnold Schwarzenegger came to being a part of Avatar 4
Avatar has already been a success since the get-go. But after years of speculations, the franchise has finally landed Schwarzenegger in the project. As per GiantFreakingRobot, the actor has signed to appear in part 4 of the movie. Since its first release in 2009, there were talks about the actor starring in an interesting role in the sequel. Fans even waited in anticipation, only to realize that the Predator actor did not make it into the final cast. He was apparently going to be portrayed in a negative role, but script or internal changes could have tossed out this plan.
This will also be his first movie with James Cameron after working in the 1994 comedy-thriller True Lies. If we actually see the Austrian- American actor make it to Avatar 4, this would mark their reunion after two decades. But before that, Avatar 3 will hit the screens in 2024. Avatar: The Way of Water already turned out to be profitable.
