Alita Battle Angel (2019 poster)

James Cameron and Rodriguez have hinted that Alita: Battle Angel could lead to multiple sequels. On February 6, 2019, they announced that they have plans for Alita: Battle Angel 2 in the future. The casting of Edward Norton in a non-speaking role as Nova in this film was intended to be a setup for the sequel. Additionally, the uncredited cameos by Michelle Rodriguez and Jai Courtney were meant to set up larger roles in a sequel. In July 2019, Salazar urged fans to buy the film on physical media and expressed her hope that a sequel would be made.

In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Cameron explained the reason for rearranging the film title from the initial source material, allowing the possibilities of sequel titles, "It's Alita, colon, Battle Angel. Because the next one will be "Alita: Fallen Angel" and then Alita... you know "Avenging Angel" and then Alita whatever. I mean, that's assuming we make some money". On December 2, 2019, John Landau, discussing the possibility of the sequel in an interview with CinemaBlend, said the following: "What I think the Alita Army should do is keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we'll venture there one day." The film is listed with losses as high as $53 million, making a sequel unlikely.
