| Leaving a security program left to die and knowing he'll crawl to safety and then CLU go, "Aw shucks, you again? That's it! I'm imprisoning you for rectifying". CLU would not be that stupid to leave him there since keeping Tron to his side would consolidate his power even more.|
See, that's my point. I don't think Clu left him to die, I think Tron held him off long enough to escape. We don't see the end of the fight, we don't even see Clu land the hit, just Tron starting to respond to it and then the camera cutting to Flynn who heard the hit land and then took off running. Since we don't see the hit land, we don't know how serious it was; Tron could get back up, fight Clu off and escape without contradicting established canon.
|As for Flynn in Uprising, it is my understanding that he does appear in the show. Even Clu himself. There is NO way that Flynn/Tron would be laughing and cajoling right after Uprising towards Legacy and prior to being arrested by Clu. How can Tron be badly injured in the first place? |
I know Flynn is in flashbacks/prologue material, because we saw that in the trailers, but I'm skeptical that he'll appear in the main storyline. I could be wrong of course, but I haven't seen anything to suggest he'll have a part in the Tron and Beck storyline. *shrug* As for the laughing/cajoling bit, I guess I'm not sure what you're saying there, unless you're implying that scene in Legacy
takes place after Uprising
? I'm pretty sure that's when the storyline for Uprising
starts since the flashback is the start of the coup.
|how do we KNOW that Flynn got his story wrong? Who proved him wrong? Did someone say "Oh, Flynn, you got it all wrong"?|
Flynn presumed Tron to be dead based on events he didn't actually see, and it wasn't true. That's pretty much Flynn getting his story wrong. Once Kevin found out Tron was alive, he never made any assumptions about when
Tron was actually captured. We know it happened eventually, but there's nothing in the film that says Tron was captured right at the coup. All Flynn says was, "I never saw him again," which works both for Clu taking Tron right then and
for Tron escaping and fleeing Tron City.
|And also if Flynn got his story wrong, then who got the story RIGHT? Who else witnessed it in order to NARRATE what really happened in Uprising?|
Tron. He is
the co-lead character of Uprising
, after all, so he was there for all of it.
The timeline as I understand it is: we have the flashback scene in Legacy
which is the coup, which Tron escapes from. The main events in Uprising
happen between the coup and Sam's entrance to the Grid while Tron is in another city training Beck to take his place. I suspect that Tron's part in Uprising
will end with him getting captured and rectified into Rinzler once Beck is mostly trained, but that's pure speculation.
As for why we don't see injuries? Maybe Clu fixed the surface injuries in rectification. Maybe it's just an inconsistency since we don't see injuries on him in the Uprising
clips I've seen so far either. I don't have any real theories on that one. Regardless, I'm pretty sure they're not going to try and claim it was Beck under the Rinzler helmet in Legacy
. For one thing, he'd have to change his circuitry and armor completely to make it match Tron's, since Beck's circuits and helmet look a lot more like Sam's. For another, it was Tron's voice when Rinzler spoke.
I definitely agree with you on wanting to see Rinzler's face, though, even if it had just been one scene after the "reveal."
