Yes. "Universal Soldier: Regeneration" (2009) has retconned "The Return" to the point none of the events of the movie ever happened in the main Universal Soldier continuity. "The Return" is now a self-contained alternate universe.
- For instance, in "Regeneration" it is strongly hinted that Luc Deveraux never reverted to the "human" state, nor such process is ever possible to accomplish.
- In "Regeneration" it is apparent Luc never had a daughter as once depicted in "The Return", nor he seems able to psychologically adjust to human life again and mate as a "normal" people.
- Even more importantly, in "Regeneration" it is officially stated that the N.G.U. project ("The White Tower") is just the second attempt at producing UniSols, not the third one.
- Finally, you can notice in "The Return" Luc displays white/gray streaks in his hair that are nowhere to be seen in "Regeneration".
Generally speaking, "Regeneration" totally ignores "The Return" and even contradicts it. Edit (Coming Soon)
