Terminator 4 Plot Details Revealed

Published 7 years ago by

terminator4 Terminator 4 Plot Details RevealedWhen news broke that Christian Bale would be starring in the snappily titled Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, fanboys across the net cheered with joy.

When his name was first mentioned there was much confusion over which role he’d be playing, however we are now assured that he will be John Connor in this Schwarzenegger-less (probably) sequel.

The boys over at CHUD.com seem to have a mole deep inside the Terminator 4 production and they have a brief outline of the film’s plot and an update of what characters we can expect to see in the forthcoming film.

The most interesting thing about this new Terminator film is that apparently John Connor isn’t the main character – the lead is somebody called Marcus. Marcus (according to CHUD) is a “bad ass”, who was put “out of commission” before Judgement Day. Marcus then wakes up fifteen years before the future that we all know and love from the original Terminator movies.


Now, maybe I’m a bit slow, but I have no idea what “out of commission” could mean. Is he a prototype Terminator that was shut down? Was he in a coma? Did he take too many drugs and find himself stoned for a decade and a half? Who knows.

The question that I have to ask is: Why have we never heard of this Marcus character before?

The article also mentions that Kyle Reese makes an appearance in the film, however I find it very unlikely that Michael Biehn will be returning to the series. Another character that is named in the plot outline is a “butt busting female character by the name of Blair, a pilot for the human resistance.”

I’m not sure what to think about all of this. I’ve always wanted to see the future war that was glimpsed in the previous Terminator films, but could this be too much? Also, if John Connor isn’t the lead, who will be playing Marcus (compared to Vin Diesels’s Riddick in CHUD’s article)?

In my opinion, I feel that this film could end up as a mess of CGI and bad action sequences, and with McG’s name on the directing credits there’s nothing to suggest otherwise.

Might this be the disaster of a film that we all anticipated?

  1. The only way I’ll get excited about this movie is if they put out a trailer and it actually looks good, but I just can’t trust anyone with making a good terminator movie. So news of the fourth is of the least importance kind of beside the A team to me.

  2. Also
    If they can’t get Arnold to do the voice there’s a (voice over) guy I can’t remember his name. But he sounds just like Arnold S,,

  3. One thing that’s off a little in
    this report. If this guy Marcus comes into the story 15 years before/after Judgement day, that dosnt match with the classic Terminator timeline.
    The future war we see in T2 takes place in 2027.

  4. Cool ideas,Steve!

    You sound like you’re into Terminator as much as I’m into JLA stuff! :-D

  5. The Terminator franchise, I believe has hit the wall. When the first thought that hits your mind is “Why couldn’t they have just spent the money bringing us something ORIGINAL?” then you know it’s getting stale.

    The TV show isn’t a bad idea at this point. Different format, different opportunities, but the big-screen treatment has been fully wrung-out in my opinion. Any attempt to set the story entirely during the future war eliminates the defining arc of the terminator films, which was always a mono-a-mono adversarial track (and one of the more interesting aspects of the film series, in my opinion – that a future war was being played out on a very personal and individual nature in the present.), instead of a full-on war film in which that element will likely be absent.
