Deadline reports that Cameron Monaghan has been confirmed as part of the Tron: Ares cast. The upcoming installment of the franchise, originally established in 1982, is ready to introduce a fresh audience to the Grid, under the guidance of director Joachim Rønning. The Tron series hasn’t graced the big screen for over a decade, providing Disney with a substantial opportunity to redefine what digital world adventure means. Characters are set to venture into a reality that was previously inaccessible.
Though details regarding the sequel’s plot remain closely guarded, some story-related snippets have surfaced for the third Tron film. Jared Leto’s character, named Ares, is set to transition from a digital storage unit into the physical realm. While earlier films in the series hinted at the potential of a program stepping into reality, it is yet to occur. Evan Peters is also confirmed to be part of the ensemble, in an unspecified role, contributing to the ongoing saga of the Tron franchise.
Monaghan, known for his significant role in the 2011 comedy series Shameless, has gradually ventured into science fiction. He portrayed the characters Jerome and Jeremiah Valeska in Gotham, a series centered around the city that would later be known as Batman’s territory. The Valeska twins, played by Monaghan, stood in for the Joker, who couldn’t appear in the show due to Bruce Wayne’s teenage status. However, should a Joker have emerged in this universe, the Valeska brothers and their deeds could have been a source of inspiration.
