“Terminator Salvation” Alternate Ending?

Be forewarned, SPOILERS!

According to Entertainment Weekly, the latest Terminator flick would’ve ended quite differently.  The current ending is this: Connor is seriously wounded and Wright offers to have some body parts harvested so Connor can continue the fight.  However, the original ending, the one that supposedly even the studio and Christian Bale signed off on goes something like this:

“Connor dies, okay? He’s dead,” McG continues. “And Marcus offers his physical body, so Connor’s exterior is put on top of his machine body. It looks like Connor, but it’s really Marcus underneath. And all of the characters we care about (Kyle Reese, Connor’s wife Kate, etc.) are brought into the room to see him and they think it’s Connor. And Connor gets up and then there’s a small flicker of red in his eyes and he shoots Kate, he shoots Kyle, he shoots everybody in the room. Fade to black. End of movie. Skynet wins. F— you!”

Holy balls.  Not only would that have been a complete mindf***, it would have been a terrible ending.  Would it have been a gutsy move?  Sure, but a dumb one at that.  If anything, people should be glad we have the ending as is.
