Ok, so as many people know, Arnold Schwarzenegger is 67 years old. Thus he’s not the chiseled man he was when he did the first Terminator move, or second, or even third. Yet with his (true) return in Terminator Genisys, one has to wonder he’ll they’ll incorporate his look without CGI making him look younger.
As in all things, James Cameron has the answer. During a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the original Terminator film, he let loose this tidbit to Deadline.
“I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered.”
Simple, logical, believable. Yep, definitely came from James Cameron. Now, whether this actually happens or not has yet to be seen. But this is James Freaking Cameron, would you not take his advice?
