One is an event, two your head explodes, three is already weird, but resurrecting Michelle Rodriguez four times already seems like an exaggeration. The actress has died and revived her characters three times in her career: in ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Machete Kills’ and in ‘Fast & Furious 6’, and for this reason he did not allow James Cameron to recover his character from ‘Avatar’ for the sequels.
In the original film, Rodríguez plays Trudy Chacón, a fighter pilot who works for the GDR and sympathizes with the Na’vi. In the final battle, and piloting her Samson renamed Rebel 1, Trudy is shot down and killed by Quaritch (Stephen Lang). Trudy sacrifices her life to ensure that the Na’vi prevail over the humans trying to take control of Pandora.
“When I saw Jim [Cameron] He recently told me, “I was thinking, ‘What if Michelle comes back? Many of the other characters returned [en ‘El sentido del agua’]». I thought, “You can’t do that, I died a martyr.”

She herself admits that a fourth time was something “excessive” and that he is not very clear about why they do not stop bringing their characters back if it made sense for him to die in the first place, but he has a theory:
“I guess they don’t know what to do with the girl who doesn’t have a boyfriend. She doesn’t have a boyfriend. Should we keep her alive or kill her?”
Although we can imagine that Rodriguez is not short of money between the sequels to ‘Fast & Furious’, ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ and the rest of the blockbusters in which he has participated in recent years, Rejecting ‘Avatar’ means rejecting one of the biggest franchises in film history, which with a sequel that has been delayed by 13 years has still managed to gross over $2 billion worldwide and rising, making it the third highest-grossing film of all time.
The new adaptation of ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ arrives this March 31 in theaters and the tenth installment of the Fast family, ‘Fast & Furious X’, will be seen in commercial theaters on May 19.
