James Cameron: Edward Furlong back as John Connor in R-rated Terminator

Also returning to Dark Fate is Edward Furlong, who portrayed John Connor in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, according to Deadline.

"You've got Tim Miller fresh off of 'Deadpool, '" Cameron said. Seeing as Terminator: Dark Fate will ignore all Terminator films after the first sequel, this makes ideal sense.

First off, director Tim Miller confirmed that the movie will indeed have an R-Rating, saying: "The DNA of Terminator is an R-rated movie". I tried to keep Gabriel a bit grounded while still interesting; I feel his new weapons and abilities are right for our times but not so ridiculous that it just turns into a visual effects superfest.

Continuing, Linda Hamilton added that she terminated her use of the chemicals following a late night chat with her doctor - and that the whole thing ultimately left her with an important takeaway: while physicality is important, what is far more vital is her ability to get into the character's mind and sell Sarah Connor's reality with her performance.

"The hard work I did was the deep exploration of a woman who's an outsider whose life hasn't worked out. I went to my places of deepest sorrow and deepest loss, and that's where I found Sarah Connor". Hamilton also called Miller "the most honest and true director I've ever worked with". The iconic star said he "needed to come back".

New Dark Fate footage was played for the Comic-Con audience, which revealed that Schwarzenegger's new T-800 model has a name: Carl. "It's because the fans kind of demanded it, in a way", he said. So, what convinced her to return to hunting terminators? Going by the film's official plot synopsis, we know that the Terminators are they setting their sights on other people, but will they continue to target John Connor too?

Skip to another scene, where the new Terminator wants Davis's blonde bobbed character.

Sarah, to Davis's character: "I've never seen one like you before". She responds: "Because I was her, and it sucks". So far we've only seen a few glimpses of what this new vision of the Terminator universe aims to be in the form of a single trailer and a few images, but on Thursday the filmmakers showed up in Hall H to start San Diego Comic-Con with a bang and show us exactly what their movie is made of.
