Dwayne Johnson Takes Over as the New Terminator after Arnold Schwarzenegger, T-800 Look for $4.8B Franchise Goes Ultra-Viral in New Images

Dwayne Johnson is one of the most prominent names when it comes to the action genre in Hollywood. Looking at his mountain-like physique, we can totally see why casting directors go after him for demanding roles. And now it looks like Dwayne Johnson is coming after an extremely iconic action franchise – Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Terminator.

Well, not really. But we are sure you’d be taken aback by just how realistic the fan art that depicts Dwayne Johnson as the T-800 looks! In the AI-generated fan art, Dwayne Johnson takes over the role of the T-800 from Arnold Schwarzenegger, filling in for the action legend in some of the most iconic scenes of the franchise.

If all the sci-fi franchises were to one day disappear from the face of the earth and you could only save one, which one would you choose and why is it Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Terminator? The franchise has a huge fan following across all age groups and we can certainly understand the hype.

Undoubtedly, one of the biggest reasons for the franchise’s popularity is lead actor Schwarzenegger who looked very cool riding his motorcycle wearing a black leather jacket.


But what if the films were to be reimagined with another popular action star taking the lead? What if the action star in question was none other than the People’s Champion Dwayne Johnson himself? In an attempt to give The Terminator a fresh look, digital artist Paul Chadwick took the liberty of depicting Johnson as the new T-800/CSM-101 with the help of the popular AI art generator, Midjourney.

It’s scary how realistic AI-generated images look! Do you think if the franchise ever gets rebooted in the future, Johnson could be an acceptable choice for the role?

The Dream Casting Continues

Chadwick’s Terminator fan art did not stop with the lead character. In fact, he went on to give new looks to some of the most important characters of the franchise, starting off with Michael Biehn’s Kyle Reese. The actor was a part of the very first film of the franchise where he traveled back in time to protect Sarah Connor from a bloodthirsty T-800. While Biehn was perfect in the role, Chadwick decided that his dream reboot would have Keanu Reeves in the role.

Now let’s come to the woman Kyle defied the laws of time to save – Sarah Connor. In the original films, Sarah was played by Linda Hamilton and Emilia Clarke. However, taking over the role in the fan art is none other than our favorite, Jennifer Lawrence. Honestly, we are not complaining!

Chadwick even reimagined the character of T-1000 who was first seen in Terminator 2 and was played by Robert Patrick. The fan art puts Loki actor, Tom Hiddleston in the shoes of T-1000.

You cannot have The Terminator without John Connor, can you? This is precisely why Chadwick has a newer, younger actor ready to take over the work of the many actors who have played John – Tom Holland. Given the fact that Holland is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood right now, we can see why Chadwick would have wanted him in such a prominent role.
