Arnie Confirmed For Terminator Genisys Sequel

Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator

It looks as though Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back… in the upcoming ‘Terminator Genisys’ sequels.

Although ‘Genisys’ has long been reported as the first part of a new ‘Terminator’ trilogy, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s involvement remained a mystery, That is, until now. But the 67-year-old Terminator has revealed that he will return.

During an interview with fansite The Arnold Fans, the original Terminator revealed in no uncertain terms that he will star in the entire ‘Terminator Genisys’ trilogy.

Asked whether he’d be heading back to film ‘Terminator 6’, he replied: “Yes, of course, next year.”

But what does this mean for ‘Terminator Genisys’?

Well, it’s already been confirmed that ‘Genisys’ would be the first in a new ‘Terminator’ trilogy… but the fate of Arnold’s old T-800 by the end of ‘Terminator Genisys’ remains unknown.

Could this be confirmation that Arnie’s original T-800 – affectionately known to Sarah Connor as ‘Pops’ – will survive the events of ‘Terminator Genisys’? Or will we see yet-another Terminator sent back by Skynet?

There’s also another far more interesting possibility – that Arnie will return as a human soldier from the future.

“Another possibility is fans have always wanted to see Schwarzenegger come back as a human resistance soldier; a badass soldier who’s captured and his DNA harvested for growing a youthful replica, who is then scanned and used to model the 1984 Terminator.”

Of course, for now we’ll have to wait and see. But it looks as though the studio is keen to keep Arnold Schwarzenegger on board. And that might just mean some ‘Terminator’ films that will live up to the original.

‘Terminator Genisys’ heads to cinemas on 3 July 2015.

Do you think Arnie should return for more ‘Terminator’ sequels? Will this new trilogy be anywhere near as good as the original two? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
