Alita: Battle Angel 2 talks have increased since the reports about planned sequels. James Cameron himself wrote the script, while Robert Rodriguez has directed the movie.
As the script for the sequel is nearly finished, more details are coming out. There are new updates on the main villain and a new character for the Alita: Battle Angel 2.
The sequel will have new characters
Based on the Japanese anime series Gunnm, Alita: Battle Angel ended with the final reveal of Nova’s character. Nova, who was played by Edward Norton in a cameo was the controller of Zalem city. He was the one responsible for everything that happened with the main character Alita, a cyborg girl with her memories lost. Alita: Battle Angel sequel would focus more on Nova and give us his backstory and the reason why he hates Alita.
Alita: Battle Angel 2 would also introduce us finally to the character of Clive Lee. While there were plans to introduce the hunter-warrior in the first movie, it was later decided to save him for the sequels. The first Alita movie focused on the motorball game as a way to reach up in the city. Alita: Battle Angel sequel would finally show us the city inside and other ways of reaching up in Zalem.
Avatar 2 could delay the movie
There are some new reports also which claims that Alita: Battle Angel sequel could be delayed. James Cameron is currently busy with the Avatar sequels, and they are also pushed back by a year. Avatar 2 will now release in December 2021 instead of 2020. It has also moved back the release dates of Avatar 3, 4, and 5 up to the year 2027.
Alita: Battle Angel 2 could release maybe earlier than Avatar 2 if the director starts working on it without James Cameron. It will be ultimately in the hands of makers about which movie to release first.
