You can’t blame the director of “Terminator 2” and “Titanic” for being a confident guy. James Cameron is currently hard at work at the sequel to his worldwide hit, Avatar, and while it won’t see the light of day until December 2021, the self-proclaimed “King of the World” already has bold predictions for it. According to Cameron, “Avatar 2” will, without a doubt, reclaim the top box-office slot from “Avengers: Endgame.”
“I think it’s a certainty,” says Cameron of “Avatar” eventually passing “Avengers” in theaters. “But let’s give ‘Endgame’ their moment and let’s celebrate that people are going to the movie theater.”
Cameron says he “really enjoyed” the superhero epic and admires the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But he clearly relishes the idea of taking the top spot again.
“I don’t want to sound snarky after I took the high road (by offering congratulations),” he says. “But they beat us by one quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving in this morning. I think accountants call that a rounding error.”
