Leto may also have accidentally revealed the title of the third movie, changing his reference of the project from “Tron: Ares” to simply “Tron.”
It comes as no surprise that a classic like Tron is being revived seeing as it is under the Disney umbrella.
The first Tron movie premiered in 1982 with Jeff Bridges and its sequel Tron: Legacy came out in 2010 with Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde in addition to Jeff Bridges. (car/kes)
