James Cameron, a Hollywood director, reflected on his future. AvatarSequel and its focus will be on his lessons in evolving as a person, which he likens to the testosterone that gave him energy when he was young. “toxin”He had to get rid of it.
Cameron spoke out in an interview recently with The Hollywood Reporter(THR) He seemed to denounce what the wake left is referring to, “toxic masculinity,”He also spoke highly of the idea of fatherhood, and the possibility for the family to be an exemplary unit. “fortress.”
“I thought, ‘I’m going to work out a lot of my stuff, artistically, that I’ve gone through as a parent of five kids,’”Cameron stated this to the outlet. “The overarching idea is, the family is the fortress. It’s our greatest weakness and our greatest strength. I thought, ‘I can write the hell out of this. I know what it is to be the asshole dad.’”
Cameron described himself as an older man who was more risk-averse, and he called this a. “testosterone-poisoned young man.”
“A lot of things I did earlier, I wouldn’t do — career-wise and just risks that you take as a wild, testosterone-poisoned young man. I always think of [testosterone] as a toxin that you have to slowly work out of your system,”He said.
It doesn’t matter if this is a sign that there are Avatar sequel will be a woke sermon about cleansing oneself of toxic masculinity or a rather anti-woke message about growing into a responsible father for the good of one’s family remains to be seen, since few details have been revealed about the film’s story. Cameron’s personal transformation has been profound over the last 20 years. He has been married for more than twenty years to Suzy Amis Cameron. They have had three children and he adopted a fourth. His ex-wife Linda Hamilton has a 29-year old daughter.
Cameron has also expressed frustration with Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). He doesn’t portray heroic men with their families.
“It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hypergonadal males (men who produce too much testosterone) without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”In 2018, he stated the following:
“I’ve found myself as a father of five starting to think about what would an ‘Avatar’ story be like if it was a family drama. What if it was ‘The Godfather?’”He added. “It’s a generational family saga. That’s very different than the first film. There’s still the same setting and the same respect for the shock of the new. We still want to show you things that you haven’t even seen or imagined, but the story is very different. It’s a continuation of the same characters … but what happens when warriors who are willing to go on suicide charges and leap off cliffs, what happens when they grow up and have their own kids?”
Cameron hinted at the possibility. AvatarThe company will keep its renowned environmental message, but maybe it’ll dial back the excessiveness.
“You can’t hit environmental messaging over the head,”Cameron spoke. “People are angsty enough. We’ll be injecting this film into a marketplace in a different time. And maybe things that were over the horizon in 2009 are upon us now. Maybe it’s not entertainment anymore.”
