The Terminator
Real Name The Terminator

The Terminator is a popular film staring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The movie is about a cybernetic assassin, played by Schwarzenegger, who travels back in time from a dystopian future and a human soldier who follows it to stop the machine.

When the X-Men met the time-traveler Bishop, he told them a story of a real dystopian future. He claimed he went back in time to stop an assassination. Wolverine referenced the film by calling Bishop "Mr. Terminator." Coincidentally adding to the comparison, the Sentinel Nimrod followed Bishop to the past to stop him.

BackgroundEdit

While based in reality, no series actually makes the connection between Terminator, mentioned on X-Men, and Schwarzenegger, mentioned on Fantastic Four.

The original movie came out in 1984 while the original Days of Future Past story was released in 1981. If anything, the comics series inspired the film.

Lance Henriksen was originally up for the title role before appearing in a smaller role as a detective in the first film while Paul Winfield played his superior and Patrick Pinney played a bar customer. Robert Patrick, Xander Berkeley, and Nikki Cox were in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Earl Boen appeared in the first, second, and third film Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Michael Ironside and Terry Crews appeared in Terminator Salvation. Dorian Harewood, Phil Morris, Yuri Lowenthal, and Brian Bloom were in the television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. J. K. Simmons appeared in Terminator Genisys.

The first two films of the series were written and directed by James Cameron. His proposed film influenced the production of Spider-Man, which was being created at the same time. This resulted in major villains Sandman and Electro not being initially used for the series.
