Schwarzenegger Explains Why His New Terminator Will Be Old

March 26, 20140 Comments

Were you wondering how they’ll explain Arnold’s obvious age difference in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis? It’s quite simple. If the machine’s exterior is human flesh that can bleed, then surely it can age over time.

The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath,” Schwarzenegger tells MTV while promoting Sabotage. “It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.

Schwarzenegger doesn’t hold back, revealing a spoiler about the upcoming sequel.

“Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800,” Schwarzenegger added, “and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good.

This confirms the earlier plot leaks about Genesis pulling a “Back to the Future Part II” and visiting scenes from the earlier films.

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) is directing from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.

Emilia Clarke is on board to play Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke will play John Connor. Jai Courtney is playing Kyle Reese. Meanwhile, J.K. Simmons plays an alcoholic detective trying to make sense of the events of 1984.

Terminator: Genesis will hit theaters on July 1st, 2015.
