No idea how they're using Arnold given his age unless they plan on heavily using digital alteration and how he's shot along with face makeup. It's pretty remarkable some of the face makeup and prosthetics they can use to make older actors look like they did 20-30 years ago these days.
I can't remember the movie I'm thinking of right now, but the technique used was dramatically authentic and looked truly like the actors did decades ago.
I don't know, man. A lot of Tom Hardy fans thought he was an excellent choice for Bane. If you've seen Bronson, I don't know how you couldn't have liked that casting right out of the gate.
As for Schwarzenegger, my bet is he's some kind of military guy they based the T-1000 after, so he'll be the older, human counterpart to the original.
