Now this…this I like.

“I had an idea that we’d go back in time to when Marcus was first put in jail,” he said. The man who the Marcus Wright terminator is based on was a death row inmate prior to Judgment Day. “They broke Linda Hamilton out of jail in [‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’], out of the nuthouse. In this one, they’d have to go back in time and break Marcus out of jail. It’s the same kind of mirror image.”

Skynet has used time travel over and over again with the intention of changing the past to shatter the human resistance in the post-Judgment Day present. Or one could say they attempt to wipe out all avenues for humanity to undo it’s own destruction which it’s brought about to making Skynet in the first place.

That said it seemed to me that humanity was on the loosing end big time even by the end of Salvation. As far as Skynet seemed to be concerned what humanity did to it in Salvation was barely a blip on its radar. Maybe it’s the humans on this occasion that in a last dith effort to save themselves and all humanity past and present attempt to pull an ace out of the hole by heading back in time to break Marcus wright OUT of prison…and the Machines send back a machine to PROTECT HIM.

Of couse this Wright is a sociopath who deserves to rot on death row. It would certainly be a nice change in the series to have a key human character turned into a major villian. To add to the tension Marcus wouldn’t be able to be a bullet magnet until later in the film. Perhaps the huamns could try and kill him…not realizing that in the end that wouldn’t matter. Marcus simply being a template for Skynet to use.

“He would be more fallible, because he’s human; he’s not metallic,” Worthington said. “He can get hurt. He still has the gung-ho attitude, but he can get hurt now.”

There’s a LOT of possibilities and it’s clear that Sam Worthington is very much into the character because he’s given it plenty of thought.

“I really liked playing the character a lot,” he said, going on to admit that he’d be game to return to the series for any reason if the powers-that-be cook up a “story [that] was worth telling.”
