Here is a small glimpse of some artwork into the big, epic world-building we’re creating, and I need the time to do it right.”
Wan continued, “These images barely scratch the surface of this movie (haven’t even shown the weird and wonderful characters and creatures of this world yet). I can’t wait to show, but you have to wait just a little bit longer ;)”
Meanwhile, Sandberg shared the news by re-tweeting Deadline’s report and wrote, “While I’m an impatient bastard who wants people to see it as soon as possible (the film will be fully done in just a few weeks), the move makes sense since Avatar was taking all IMAX/PLF screens. ‘Fury of the Gods’ is a big movie and should be seen big!”
