How Ghost Rider and Arnold Schwarzenegger Helped Gabriel Luna Become the Next Terminator

Speaking to actor Gabriel Luna its hard to deny how incredibly excited he is to be part of the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate. Not only is Luna in one of the biggest blockbusters of 2019 he’s doing so alongside some of his cinematic idols Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In the 2019 direct sequel (that only acknowledges Terminator and Terminator 2) to Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human must protect a young girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future.

Gabriel Luna plays a newly badass upgraded Terminator known as REV 9 that’s been sent back from the future to modern-day Mexico City to kill Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), who’s fated to play a big role in a future war between humans and machines.

Luna is no stranger to action, playing Robbie Reyes, aka the flaming-skulled Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD. But for him, a self-confessed Terminator fan, being a part of this franchise was mindblowing.
