Jackson Rathbone has the somewhat awkward job of promoting two of his movies at the same time. Yes, both “The Last Airbender” and “Eclipse” are out this weekend, so we couldn’t resist also asking him which character he thought would win. Unfortunately, since he was promoting “Airbender,” at the time, he and his co-star Nicola Peltz were a little biased.
“Sokka, no question,” Nicola said without hesitation. “Definitely Sokka. Obviously. I mean, he has a boomerang, it’s pretty serious.”
Jackson attributed her alliance to “little sister’s love” (we’re sure his Cullen siblings would have backed up Jasper if they had been asked at the “Eclipse” junket), but declined to share which character he would choose.
“I’m just lucky they live in two different dimensions, in two different worlds,” he said. “It’s an honor to be a part of these two franchises that have seem to have captivated the world in one way or another and I’m just privileged to be able to do this.”
Who do you think would win in a fight: Jasper or Sokka?
