James Cameron talks about the future of the Terminator franchise and what is to come in the future.
'Terminator: Dark Fate' is in theatres now, and it is getting largely mixed reviews, one side considers it a worthy follow up while the other is adamant you will not be back for more as beyond the core cast there is nothing unique about the movie. No matter which side you land on, it is a great sight to see the original cast of the movie returning for the continuation of the beloved action franchise.
It was a long process for the people involved behind the scene in making the new film after how much of a debacle 'Genesys' was. People talked about the 'Terminator' franchise being done because after the second 'Terminator' movie, the last three in over 20 years; all sucked really hard. So, when word came out, they are making another 'Terminator' movie, no one was particularly excited.
Then, it was announced the director of the first two movies is coming back to produce, Deadpool’s director is helming the project, and best of all, Linda Hamilton, the original 'Sarah Connor,' is coming back to the franchise. Now the movie is getting mixed reviews, at least most consider it to be better than the last three installments and James Cameron things there is more in the franchise than just Dark Fate.
James Cameron believes there is more left in the franchise than just the new film, and he also talked about how this movie was not ready to explore the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence.

“I don't feel like we did that in 'Dark Fate,'” Cameron said about the relationship between human and AI. “I feel that we set the stage or we set the table for that exploration, and that exploration would take place in a second film and a third film. And we know exactly where we're going to take that idea.”
So, according to James Cameron, there are more movies still in store for the 'Terminator' franchise. He may not take the reins of most of the films, but he is going to be involved, and if three is a second and a third movie, he will get to explore the AI and human relationship even more.

But even though the director wants further movies in the franchise, he also believes 'Terminator: Dark Fate' can stand as a singular experience. Something people can enjoy without needing to wait for the sequel and wait for the continuation of the series even more. “I think Dark Fate stands alone as a pretty good one-time story,” James said about the new 'Terminator' movie.
'Terminator: Dark Fate' was released worldwide on 1 November 2019. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back along with Linda Hamilton, and there are new characters with a new hybrid Terminator from the future after them.
