Was the ‘army of others’ true and will they really travel to San Francisco? And, with Caesar thrust into the role of commander-in-chief of an army he doesn’t want and into a war he tried his hardest not to start - how will he fare?

Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes played a pivotal role in the movie and could again in Apes 3

Equally, what about Caesar himself? He was effectively the central character in Dawn and won the hearts of many an audience member. If Apes 3 is to move forward in time, can Caesar still play a pivotal role? Could we see the emergence of his son, Blue Eyes, who will eventually take over as head of the colony? Will he follow in his father’s footsteps or will he have his own plans, leading to further twists and turns in ape history?

Now for the humans. Their characters certainly played second-string to the characterisation of the apes in Dawn but, with the reference to James Franco’s character, could the third apes pave the way for further focus on the humans as we explore their own backstories and circumstances? What about a possible James Franco return, maybe even anti-ape following the loss of everything he knew and loved as a result of the Simian Flu? Could a new hostile relationship between owner and pet, or between beings once friends, destroy Caesar’s respect for humans and his desire for peace and trigger everything but World War III?

So many questions, far too much speculation. But, if Rise and Dawn are anything to go by, we can almost be certain that Apes 3 will make for fantastic viewing.

I guess they could cut to the future and have the lost Mars Mission from "Rise" return and find a planet populated by Apes like in the original 1968 movie

These movies are not in the same continuity as the 1968 film. And James Franco's character, Will Rodman, was killed by the Simian Flu. This was implied heavily in Dawn and its prequel novel Firestorm.
