Let’s bid a warm welcome to our new robot…
Linda Hamilton with shades and a goddamn shotgun is an aesthetic.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular round-up of all the shiny things we’ve wanted to spend our savings on recently. This week, we’ve got some very cool Voltron, Star Wars, and Batman Beyond toys heading to San Diego Comic-Con, a lovely little Pokémon pal, and a most impressive Sith Lord. Check it out!
You know what they say about throwing stones in glass houses? It still applies when it’s the beleaguered crew on a terrible movie making jokes about the beleaguered crew on another terrible movie. It is pretty funny, though, when those two movies are Terminator Genisys and Fantastic Four.
There could be more flashback shenanigans in the next Terminator. The arrival of James Wan’s Swamp Thing show has delayed another DC series. Arrow is losing another major character. Plus, get your first official look at the star of (and unsurprisingly named) Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series. To me, my spoilers!
Sideshow Collectibles’s line of “Premium Format” statues usually offer ridiculously detailed (and very expensive) sculpts of beloved pop culture characters, from Star Wars to comics and a million other things in between. But its latest Terminator statue has a bit of a twist: It’s an entirely new character with her own…
Mackenzie Davis, star of AMC’s fantastic Halt and Catch Fire and the best episode of Black Mirror, is close to landing the lead role in Terminator 6. If the deal goes through she’d join the returning Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton as the new face of the franchise.
In a wide-ranging interview, the director sheds some light on the long gap between the first Avatar film and its several planned sequels, as well as offering some insight into his return to the Terminator franchise.
Hot on the heels of new plot and character details in the next installment of James Cameron’s time-traveling AI apocalypse comes a release date: Terminator 6—or Terminator 3: For Real This Time, or whatever it’ll be called—is coming out on July 26, 2019.
The news broke last week that Linda Hamilton would reunite with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new Terminator film, to be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) with James Cameron producing. The stars are aligned for the first great Terminator film in decades—but what will it take to get it right?

We’ve all watched a movie where a character gets hurt and thought “They’d never survive that in real life.” Well, a new book will put that to the test with some super gruesome and awesome drawings.
James Cameron, perfectionist that he is, seems pretty happy with Terminator 2: Judgment Day And who can blame him? It’s a stunning action film. So for the 3D theatrical re-release this month, Cameron left the film alone. Mostly.
The Terminator franchise helped launch James Cameron’s career to a level few other filmmakers dream of. However, after his first two films in the franchise, he walked away—mostly due to complicated rights issues—and the subsequent sequels suffered for it.
And Grant Gustin teases how Barry’s time in the speedforce has changed him. James Cameron has a progress update on his plans for Terminator. The J.R.R. Tolkien biopic might have found its star.

Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular round up of the coolest toys we’ve seen all week. Although shiny San Diego Comic-Con exclusives might have already taken up most of this week’s toy news, there’s still a few more ways the world of action figures can drain your wallet.
