Edward Furlong and Nick Stahl never quite seemed the type to save humanity in a great war against the machines. Which may be why John Connor in Terminator Salvation is played by Christian Bale, a man so badass that the police have to be called to save people from his verbal assaults.
Bale, alas, is currently in Japan promoting The Dark Knight and not talking about his alleged family altercation, but director McG and cast members including Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Worthington, Common, and Moon Bloodgood showed up to an enthused Comic-Con panel with some early footage.
Of course, everyone wanted to know whether Arnold will be back. McG played it coy: "The T-800 model is indeed part of the mythology of the Terminator."
