Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to return to one of his most iconic roles as the original Terminator in Terminator: Dark Fate. Following the release of the first trailer, the actor explained just why his cyborg character appears to have aged.
In a Reddit upload of the trailer, fans saw an aged T-800 (Schwarzenegger) appear very briefly in front of Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). A curious viewer asked how Terminators age in the comments section, which Schwarzenegger answered in a clever way.
"I'm a cybernetic organism," the actor replied, using a quote from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. "Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton."
Schwarzenegger then asked for someone to find Kyle Reese's quote from the first Terminator film regarding the cyborgs having bad breath, which another viewer happily provided.
Despite his character being older, Schwarzenegger must still have what it takes to fight for the future when Terminator: Dark Fate releases in theaters.
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta. The film opens Nov. 1.
