Deleted Scenes That Would Have Fixed These Confusing Movies

The Terminator franchise will long be remembered as the vehicle that propelled Arnold Schwarzenegger to super stardom. But as good as Arnie is in that role, the franchise has always sported one huge unanswered question: why on Earth would Skynet — a sentient computer program originally developed in the United States — build a robotic assassin, one designed to stealthily infiltrate and take out a single target as covertly as possible, with arms the size of a city bus and a thick Austrian accent? As intimidating as the T-800 is, it doesn't exactly scream "subtle," does it?

Well, this is actually explained in far more detail than anyone ever wanted, in a deleted scene from Terminator 3. There, it's established that the T-800 was physically based on an American soldier (played by Arnie, duh) called Master Sergeant William Candy. Sergeant Candy was selected as the model for an experimental robotic soldier designed to take the place of actual troops, so he had his body and face scanned by Cyberdyne systems, to serve as the basic look of the robots. The obvious interpretation of this scene is that when Skynet took over, it used this information as the basis for the T-800 because it's not like the sentient killer computer program that wants to destroy all humanity had many other options.

As for the voice, during the scene Schwarzenegger is dubbed over with a thick southern accent (allegedly provided by none other than Samuel L. Jackson), prompting a member of military brass to quip "I don't know about that accent," to which an unnamed suit replies (in Arnie's voice) "we can fix it." This suggests he recorded all the lines the robot would speak that Skynet similarly used when making the T-800. If Judgment Day happens in real life, our Terminator will sound exactly like Ciri.
