The producers behind the new Terminator are, like everyone else, hoping to build a whole Marvel-style cross-platform universe for their franchise, so they've hired Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce a new series to tie into the upcoming reboot.
