Subj: Questions about last year's Terminator: Salvation: The Final Battle 12-issue LS from Dark Horse

It was pretty good. My only questions:

1) I know that there was originally to have been two more sequels to the Salvation movie, making two trilogies total, but didn't for some reason. In this comic, I notice Thomas Parnell looks A LOT like Tom Hiddleston (Loki in the Avengers-related movies). Was Parnell supposed to have originally been in the intended sequels(s), with Tom Hiddleston cast in this role, then they didn't make the next movies, and used his image here for the character anyway? Or is it all just a coincidence?

2) What happened to the Terminator and Terminatrix from T3? We saw the T1-2 time travelers sent, but not them, except for maybe that Terminator that was brought to Terminator-John near the end of issue #12, who was never said to have gone back in time afterward, or have a reason to, as Skynet and humanity were beginning to work together by that point. Also, it was said in T3 that those Terminators were sent from 2032, instead of 2029 like in T1-2 (and the year #12 ends in) for some reason, and the Terminatrix killed off some future-soldiers of Connor's near the start of T3. Very confused here with all this.

3) Continuity conflict: If the Kyle Reese is sent back from here to 1984, won't he tell a different rise of Skynet story to Sarah, or at least a different time it happens this time (2003 instead of 1997)? Might mess up stuff in the original "time-loop".

4) How did the events of T2 not originally happen between 1984 T1 events and the original Terminator future? That never made sense to me.

This was a great comic, just need some things resolved. And don't miss Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy from Dark Horse, as well. Another good LS.
