Trilogy equals THREE movies. Which terminator movie are you going to possibly use to complete the trilogy? The first 2 are canon, everything else is bull shite.

Not a specific theory, although there used to be tons, and I guess they're still out there, but because of how much time has passed no one spends much time on it these days. But I used to love speculating on who, or what, this bastard was and what his ultimate goals were:

I've never read a single comic/graphic novel in my life so I'm not seriously bitching about it. I'm sure it will look cool. Just not really great photos, IMO.
Also, I looked up the Batsuit from The Dark Knight Returns. I hope he finds something a bit more high-tech if he's planning on tangling...
