Here’s a roundup of everything from the obvious to the obscure affiliations between the cast and crew of “Terminator Salvation” and the comic book world, so you know all the degrees of separation between comics and the robot-savvy “Terminator” team.
Maybe lesser known is Bale’s involvement in Nolan’s “The Prestige,” which co-starred “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” actor Hugh Jackman. We’re betting that this film is the best chance to see a Logan versus Bruce Wayne showdown on the big screen — though we certainly wouldn’t be opposed to something more official!
The actor is friendly with director Martin Campbell, though he’s previously stated that he can’t imagine strapping on the superhero tights. On the far side of the rumor mill, Worthington was also once rumored to be a potential replacement for Bale in “Batman 3,” though the actor has firmly denied that report.
Buzz is already building about the on-screen Kyle Reese’s excellent performance in “Terminator Salvation,” which no doubt led to the speculation that he’d star in the upcoming “Green Lantern” film — a rumor that surprised Yelchin himself!
While that movie is effectively shelved, Common still has comic book credibility from his role as the Gunsmith in last year’s “Wanted.”
With a name like Bloodgood, it’s hardly a surprise that she’d be drawn to that violent viking epic.
