The director has been around for quite some time and has made some of the highest-grossing movies in Hollywood. With Avatar (2009) and Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) making more than $2 billion at the box office, it’s no surprise that Cameron knows what he is doing.

Now, the director is busy working on Avatar 3 (2024), which will introduce a fire tribe of the Na’Vi and show a more destructive side of the natives. His franchise won’t stop there, as he has ideas to make several more movies. Fans will be getting a lot more of Sam Worthington’s Jake Sully and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri over the next decade as Avatar becomes more popular.

Cameron didn’t earn his fame with Avatar, but it was Titanic (1997) with Kate Winslet’s Rose Tyler and Leonardo Dicaprio’s Jack Dawson that made the director. After the movie’s release, fans fell in love with the tragic story of love and seeing the large vessel sink.

Near the movie’s end, Rose and Jack make it to a door, and Jack can’t be at the door with Rose to survive, so he sacrifices his life to save Rose. While this is typical for a tragic romance story, fans didn’t believe that only one person could stay afloat on the door since it looked big enough for both of them to fit on it.

Fans can finally know that Cameron was wrong regarding Titanic, as the director has been defending himself for a long time. Admitting that Rose could be living happily ever after with Jack now is fine, but fans will forever hold Cameron accountable for not letting those characters get the happy ending they deserved.

Now, Kate Winslet has returned to work with Cameron in Avatar 2, but it will be interesting to see if Leonardo Dicaprio will join the Avatar franchise and have a reunion with his former costar for the role that made him famous.

Do you think Leonardo Dicaprio will be in the Avatar franchise? Let us know what you think!
