The Rock Could Be Set To Replace Arnold Schwarzenegger As Terminator

The Terminator franchise is reportedly getting a reboot, and The Rock could take the reigns from Arnold Schwarzeneggar as one of the most iconic characters in cinema.

The Rock is everywhere right now and that doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon. He might well be the hardest working actor on the planet and it’s unclear how he manages to cram in as much he does each and every day. According to Giant Freakin’ Robot, The People’s Champ will be adding more to his overcrowded schedule in the not-too-distant future.

Rock will be doing that by becoming the new Terminator, taking up the mantle from Arnold Schwarzeneggar when the franchise is potentially rebooted. The Rock could also have a starring role in Predator which is also being considered for the reboot treatment. Perhaps Rock fans should just start calling the former WWE Superstar Arnie at this point, especially if both of these reports come to fruition.

It may also be a sign that the minds behind the proposed Terminator and Predator reboots were testing the waters of younger audiences earlier this year. Both Predator and Terminator’s T-800 and Sarah Connor were added to Fortnite as crossover skins during season five. Fortnite players are also convinced The Rock voiced new Fortnite character The Foundation.

Terminator: Dark Fate, which was the sixth chapter in the franchise, performed what is becoming an increasingly common tactic in entertainment. Its creators decided to ignore the less successful third, fourth, and fifth Terminator installments and followed directly on from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The first Terminator sequel is widely considered to be one of the greatest action movies of all time. Perhaps Terminator’s use of this tactic is what inspired Crash Bandicoot 4 to ignore 20 years worth of sequels and follow-ups.

WrestleMania 37 takes place this weekend, but The Rock will not be a part of the show. Even though the multiple-time WWE Champion remains connected to the business that made him famous, he hasn’t appeared on WWE TV since 2019. Rock has even suggested he will never wrestle again, but there are strong rumors he will return to wrestle his cousin Roman Reigns when WrestleMania goes Hollywood in 2023.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite.
