I’ve been hearing new news about the next Terminator movie, what I know so far is that Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning even in his old age, they’re looking for a younger actress to play Sarah Connor, and that the title will be Terminator Genesis. There have been rumors that a Terminator was sent back to Sarah Connor’s younger years to protect her from a new enemy. Let’s just hope this rumor that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is gonna be the new evil Terminator isn’t true. They say it’s a reboot, but I have a theory.
It’s possible that this is a new timeline in the series, altered after the events of Terminator Salvation, that after Salvation, someone went back in time prior to T1 starting a new timeline, hence the name Genesis for beginning. Like the new Star Trek movies. It would make sense, they’re trying to start a new timeline though doesn’t reference the previous two movies intend to start a new franchise. I have even composed a timeline of the whole franchise and my theory on T5.
Red: straight timeline
Green: the journey of the time travelers
Blue: a divert in the timeline after someone’s interference.
On a side note, I am mad that they were doing a new Terminator series yet it’s not a connection to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I really loved that show.
