In a new interview with Collider, McG revealed that the DVD/Blu-ray version of the film house 30-40 minutes of deleted scenes. In addition to the much-discussed, but ultimately removed Moon Bloodgood topless scene, there’s also more of John Connor giving speeches:
“There are great long takes of Connor giving speeches, evoking Sarah Connor that we ultimately lifted because I didn’t want it to feel that he was dependent on the voice of his mother to find his leadership.”

And because I mostly hate spoilers and am note entire sure I want to know about this, here’s the ending, courtesy io9 (I just copy and pasted, so I don’t know what this contains):
“We had a jet-black ending. Connor dies, we’re in a room with all the people we care about. You take Connor’s likeness, you put it on the living machine of Marcus. He sits up, now looking like Christian Bale, takes a gun, kills Kate, kills Kyle, kills Star, kills everybody, eyes flare red, [snaps] the end.”
