Avatar: The Way of Water also sees the return of Stephen Lang’s villainous and very dead Colonel Quaritch, resurrected as Na’avi in ​​the new film.

Another surprise early in the film reveals that a new character named Spider (Jack Champion) is Quaritch’s son, born after his death.

Spider is friends with Jake and Neytiri’s children and is kidnapped by Quaritch after ambushing her in the woods. Despite discovering that Quaritch is his father, Spider remains loyal to Jake and company, aiding them in a major naval battle at the film’s climax.

This showdown leads to a final fight between Jake and Quaritch, with the former choking Quaritch and leaving him to drown at the bottom of the ocean. However, when Spider comes across his father’s body, he drags him to safety before returning to Jake, who has no idea Quaritch is alive.

Many found the decision frustrating, with some branding it “annoying” on social media, but Lang has explained the reasons behind Spider’s actions.

Speak with CinemaBlend, he said: “It’s cool. The boy is torn, sure, but it’s kind of… there’s justice there, whether… look, parentage aside, all that aside, the fact is I saved his life 20 minutes prior. I gave up the mission to keep the child alive. Because I have no doubt about that [Neytiri] would have cut his throat.
