#SDCC2019 Terminator: Dark Fate has Edward Furlong back as John Connor and will be R-Rated

July 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Look, there’s no point denying it, Tim Miller’s misogyny comments last week were a bit off-putting as we’ve all heard – and are getting sick of – this agenda-driven nonsense in modern movies. But from SDCC tonight there is some news that’s more encouraging.

Firstly, it’s been confirmed that Edward Furlong, who played John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, is back in this movie int he role… only now Furlong is 42!!!

Anyway, he’s joining his mother Sarah Connor – played by Linda Hamilton – again alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator  and that has this fan excited.

The panel seemed very concerned with getting across that this is movie is a throwback to Terminator and T2 more than what came after.

Oh, and here’s a new featurette…

Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta as two new human characters somehow caught up in the fight for both the future of mankind and the future of the Terminator franchise at Paramount Pictures.

Terminator: Dark Fate arrives in theaters on November 1, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
