Dark Knight vs. Terminator

Well no, except in comic books, there are not any plans to have Batman confront everyone’s favorite cyborg assassin. I just couldn’t resist the headline in the wake of the news, reported at AICN, that Christian Bale will play John Connor in the upcoming TERMINATOR 4. The Internets lit up like a bonfire a few days ago, with news that Bale was in the film, but for all we knew he might be playing the title role. Now the bonfire has been relit, with AICN proclaiming (based on the combo of Bale and director McG) that TERMINATOR SALVATION: THE FUTURE BEGINS will “kick ass.” Of course, some of us feel there is still reason for skepticism, considering TERMINATOR 3.
