Fans have been waiting nearly a decade and a half to return to The Grid after the release of Tron: Legacy. Their wish is finally being granted next year, with Tron: Ares currently filming in Vancouver, Canada. A set video from the project gives fans their first look at Jared Leto’s costume in the upcoming film.

Jared Leto will be playing the titular Ares in Tron: Ares. Leto is set to be the leading man in the sequel, with his character described as “a computer program sent from the digital world into the real world on a dangerous mission to introduce artificial intelligence beings to humans.” Ares will reportedly face off against Edward Dillinger Jr., an ENCOM board member from Tron: Legacy who has been recast to be played by Evan Peters.
